Our enterprise agreements expired on 30 June 2013. We are in the process of renegotiating these agreements.

Enterprise bargaining

Our enterprise agreements reached their nominal end dates on 30 June 2013. After months of detailed development work and negotiation, we are pleased to announce that discussions have been completed with the bargaining team on the University of Newcastle Enterprise Agreements (EA).

The new agreements

The new agreement supports our aspirations to build our performance, reputation, and our global leadership role while continuing to provide a rewarding, stimulating and supportive place to work.

Membership of the CPSU have given the green light to the professional agreement and the local NTEU members have provided endorsement of the professional and academic agreements, subject to approval by their National Office, as is the usual process for this union. The NTEU will meet with teaching staff to review the teachers' agreement. UON staff will then be invited to vote on their EA and its conditions.

The EA includes five salary increases. Salary increases will take effect once staff have endorsed the agreement through the ballot process and the agreements have been approved and registered by the Fair Work Commission.

Give your feedback

We appreciate the level of interest in the enterprise bargaining process and extend our sincere thanks to all who contributed.  We look forward to finalising the agreement on behalf of all UON staff. If you would like to provide your feedback, please email the Enterprise Bargaining Team.
