UNDA underway early

University of Notre Dame Australia announces a 2 per cent pay-rise, backdated to October

There’s also a $1000 one-off payment for junior academic and professional staff.

It comes ahead of the formal start of enterprise bargaining.

“While many universities across the country are currently negotiating new enterprise agreements, not all have provided their staff with an administrative pay increase,” DVC Finance Mike Conry tells staff.

Good o – but as the nominal expiry date of the previous agreement was December 31 last perhaps this payrise will be backdated into management’s offer for the new one.
