Monash provost explains how the university supports staff (without mentioning money)

Monash University is ready to resume enterprise bargaining, with Provost Marc Parlange telling staff about a meeting with the campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union, which “highlighted the generosity of many of our conditions and benefits designed to support our staff at work and in their lives.” In particular, Professor Parlange focused on parental leave and family violence support as examples of what management is doing “to provide greater opportunities, greater stability and greater certainty for staff for many years to come.”

Important issues beyond doubt but a learned reader wonders when bargaining will begin on pay. “With another 11 EBA meetings already scheduled through till mid-July, pay will not have an immediate effect on the university’s cash flow,” the LR remarks.
