La Trobe U proposes more: pay and working hours both

Plus there is a cash for super trade-off

Vice Chancellor John Dewar tells staff that after seven months of “productive negotiations” all enterprise bargaining proposals are discussed.

including pay: the university offers 13.6 per cent, 2023-25, on top of the 2 per cent administrative pay increase  awarded last July.  But 3.6 per cent of the 15.6 per cent is to cover “a proposed adjustment to work hours.” Management wants to increase them by 3.57 per cent, from January, to bring LT U, “in line with the rest of the Victorian HE sector.”

and security for some casuals: there are 60 FTE positions for academic casuals in the form of (unspecified) continuing positions and fixed term fellowships

plus a cash for super trade-off: staff can elect to reduce their 17 per cent super to that which the rest of us get (now 11 per cent) and take the difference as pay.
