New Enterprise Agreement finalised

6 DECEMBER 2005

Charles Sturt University has successfully concluded enterprise bargaining negotiations, having reached a new agreement with all staff unions.

Charles Sturt University (CSU) has successfully concluded enterprise bargaining negotiations, having reached a new agreement with all staff unions.
 
The Agreement will be known as Charles Sturt University Enterprise Agreement 2005-2008 and replaces four existing agreements with academic and general staff.
 
“We have achieved a very favourable outcome, both for staff and the University as a whole,” said CSU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ian Goulter.
 
“The CSU agreement complies with the Federal Government’s Higher Education Workplace Relations Requirements, which should see the University receive additional Commonwealth funding to support our teaching and research profile in 2006 and 2007.”
 
Features of the Charles Sturt University Enterprise Agreement 2005-2008 include:
  • An Agreement that expires in September 2008
  • A fair and reasonable salary offer of 24%, (compounding to 26.75%) over a five year period
  • Parental leave provisions increased to 26 weeks
  • Casual loading increased from 20% to 23%
  • An agreement that streamlines and simplifies some processes such as managing organisational change, dispute resolution, disciplinary procedures and redundancy processes
  • Staff employed on fixed term contracts will be eligible to convert to continuing employment under certain circumstances
  • Establishment of an Employee Consultative Committee.
“Those involved in the negotiations for this successful outcome, including University staff and union representatives, should be praised for their diligence throughout this process,” concluded Professor Goulter.
