Pay rises on the way at Uni Queensland

The university offers staff pay rises of 15.76 per cent to 17.74 per cent (the difference is the relative impact of a $1500 signing bonus)

There is also a commitment to casual academic staff being offered continuing employment and academic freedom protections.

These are good results for the union bargaining team and while National Tertiary Education Union members are not abandoning scheduled industrial action just yet word is they will once a union-university heads of agreement is in-place.

Union members will then need to approve a final detailed draft before it goes to an all-staff vote.
