The branch`s president, Leah Kaufmann, added that the union would oppose any proposal to amend the enterprise agreement «proposed by the ACU alone.» ACU expects revenue loss of $125.9 million in 2020-22 due to the loss of covid-19 and the loss of income for international students. Measures taken to manage them include reducing non-wage spending ($31 million) and, with the approval of the University Senate, allocating $53 million to «future projected surpluses» to create a «reinvestment fund» «to save the jobs of our employees.» But the staff must be involved; «We`re not thinking about a voluntary separation program. If a change is needed, change management is in line with the enterprise agreement,» the university said. This means that employees would vote on each step to «vary» the wage increase in 2021 in the EA. The Catholic Board of Education offers three super-innuation funds to staff.

And no part of the ACU will escape. «Staff costs and downsizing are applied to each organizational unit.» The target for staff savings is $42 million.

Workers are unable to manage Superannuation`s contributions to other superination funds. For more information about the agreement, officers should first consult with their designated supervisor. If more information or advice is needed, employees should go to the central service. The Australian Catholic University says it «does not consider voluntary redundancies.» Good, but temporary and casual/sessional employees should be careful, none of them went well with the National Tertiary Education Union campus branch, «the NTEU strongly condemns the development of plans that undermine staff conditions and lead to the loss of security, agreed rights and livelihoods for our colleagues.» The university has begun to implement the provisions of the agreement, including updating a number of guidelines, procedures and guidelines. Staff and supervisory authorities are informed that if there is disagreement between the provisions of the new agreement and another document, the provisions of the new agreement prevail.
