Of all Australian universities, VU is one of the boldest in creating a new approach to student training, focusing on bulk education and smaller classes. It is not surprising that they need major changes in their 2013 enterprise agreement to make it work. Your enterprise agreement defines the terms and conditions of your work, including your compensation, leave, work settlement and dispute resolution process. The second would be to ask the Fair Work Commission to terminate the old agreement, as it is no longer likely to support the new VU model. Professor Ling said that even if all the conditions were agreed for the university, some of the best vacation services in Victoria and the highest-paid parental leave in the industry would still offer. What happened: with 54% of voters, only 23% supported the offer of higher education, which was strongly rejected by the campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union. THE VU took the relatively unusual step of offering an offer to employees who did not have union support after lengthy discussions became bogged down and likely to remain so. Victorian TAFE Teaching Staff Multi-Enterprise Agreement 2018 Last year, the university, which serves west of Melbourne and provides professional and higher education skills, reported a deficit of $29.2 million for revenue of $444 million. The result was almost three times the deficit of the previous year and, for the fourth year in a row, it was in the red. Why: The NTEU campus branch has no doubt as to why management has disappeared. "Employees have totally rejected management`s attempts to completely remove the union from the corporate collective agreement and to remove important staff rights, such as the right to independent review by a tripartite committee prior to dismissal," said Paul Adams, president of the institution. Among the conditions that the university intends to apply are a 17.9% increase in contact time for teaching, an increase in working time from 8 a.m.

to 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. to 7 p.m., greater flexibility for university management in negotiating redundancy packages and a management right to recruit new employees on fixed-term contracts. Professor Ling said they would offer employees a 7.18 percent increase over the duration of the agreement, which would last until 2022. Management`s message to employees during the vote was that the proposed enterprise agreement "offers many requirements that are above industry standards and, in some cases, are among the best in the industry." While the union has described as insufficient the proposal for a wage increase, four annual wage increases from 1.4% this year to 2 per cent in 2021, the major problems appear to have been staff disturbances in restructuring management research, changing conditions for some teachers and reducing discipline and conflict and position allocation processes. (CMM September 10) "The university did not succeed in this round of voting, which is why they now have three main options. The proposed agreement does not have the support of the National Higher Education Union, which was excluded from the process after management said it was "no longer in a position to incorporate any other changes" that the union wanted.
