« When similar models were introduced at other universities, this was done with the agreement of the NTEU and its members to negotiate companies, » said the UNE spokesman. The most important lesson I have learned from this experience is to do everything in its power to address a decrepit membership. It was the withdrawal of members that was their greatest enemy – apart from the two tangible enemies of management and union bosses – in collective bargaining. Before this « COVID Cave-in » by the NTEU, I thought that THE members of the UNE (and non-members) would need by the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021 to find out who is telling them the truth and learning their lesson lesson. But the COVID`s inseception could have made such a conclusion. University of New South Wales – NO MORE JOB CUTS – August 2017 (PDF version) Every faculty of the university (except Canberra) is being restructured, which… This is a third round for this year`s industrial wrestling at UNE, with the Union and management each winning one. But in January, the Fair Work Commission informed management that it could not change the academic workload in an existing school simply because it was transferred to a new faculty (CMM January18). But last month, the Commission backed the administration in a case where it was about what the existing enterprise agreement should have said about fees for casual teaching professionals, contrary to what it actually did. NTEs and casual academics who teach online at the School of Education (CMM) have been lost. The bone of contention is the PROPOSAL of the UN management to implement an academic workload model of several hours, used in almost all other Australian universities. They believe this model will ensure fairness and transparency for staff and a sustainable future for the university. The agreement will not penalize the worker with regard to his terms of employment if: the current enterprise agreements were approved by the Fair Work Commission in March 2019.
Fair Work Act 2009s.185 – Application for approval of an agreement of a single AM company: the UN NTEU branch committee has been negotiating a new business exchange agreement with the university`s management for more than two years. In 2018 and 2019, members of the trade union division took industrial action, but THE UN leadership has always delayed the process. Can you give us a background on your corporate trading campaign? What were the main demands of the members and what did management dig on their heads? NTEU of the University of New England are researching the campus this morning and are committed to a more collegial and transparent workplace, where management has more responsibilities to staff and students. It is part of the union`s bargaining campaign for improved employment services, change management and performance management. The NTEU also wants « better results » in terms of employment and transition to full-time work for casual workers at The Torres Strait Aborigines and Islanders. The University of New England branch of the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) will meet today to discuss further union action after more than a week of strikes during enterprise negotiations. A staff member may request a contract with the university for the acquisition of 10 days (2 weeks) or 20 days (4 weeks) of additional leave over a 12-month period. However, THE members of the UNE argue that the proposed changes to the academic workload model are radical, unfair and opaque.
