On Monday, former Universities Australia CEO Belinda Robinson joined the university in the newly created role of vice president, academic relations and strategy, where she will see her top teams in UC`s new « professional priorities, » including student recruitment and marketing. The enterprise agreement was approved on June 7, 2019 and has an expiry date of October 31, 2021. The agreement provides for the following wage increases: the enterprise agreement expires on April 4, 2019 and has an expiry date of October 31, 2021. While the National Tertiary Education Union questioned the impact on the workload of backlogs, the university stressed that the program was not about layoffs, but about improving the efficiency and results of research by reducing the proportion of professionals in academics. For more information on the changes to the new agreement, click here: The ACT Public Service Administrative and Related Classifications Enterprise Agreement 2018-2021 was approved by the Fair Work Commission on March 27, 2019. The classifications covered by the proposed agreement are as follows: the university also registered 106 fewer students in 2018 than the previous year, according to the QS world ranking, and nearly 5,000 fewer than it had hoped under its 2013-17 strategic plan. Employees were informed in May that it had cost the university about $120 million in revenue. The agreement applies to all registered nurses and midwives, registered nurses and nursing assistants employed in the ACT Public Service. A university spokesman told Fairfax Media that the program as a whole had been a success and described the packages as generous in offering employees three weeks` pay for each full year of service, limited to 60 weeks.

ACT Public Service Administrative and Related Classifications Enterprise Agreement 2018-2021 A copy of the agreement is available here: ACTPS Nursing and Midwifery Enterprise Agreement 2017-2019 Employees who spoke to Fairfax Media said that « a lot of talent » came out of the door and the workload would stop. One faculty lost nearly a dozen academics in one fell swoop, and another field saw 14 professional payroll staff, according to university documents.
The program has cost nearly US$138,000 and, since its announcement in February, has received more than 200 expressions of interest and distributed approximately $7.4 million in separation packages. The university even collapsed on program costs in 2018, the spokesman said, and about $12.8 million in savings are expected to take effect as early as next year. But according to the university`s June figures, the staff imbalance has not improved since 2015, with 29 academics among those who attest to a package of exits in austerity measures. Final decisions on the positions to be replaced are still under investigation, the university confirmed, while work continues on its personnel planning strategy. The University of Canberra has spent more than $7 million to pay employees for their resignations as it puts its budget in line with the millions lost due to the federal government`s university funding freeze. The agreement applies to all physicians employed by the Public Health Directorate and Calvary Public Health Care ACT Inc. (this does not include guest physicians). 95 employees have since left university through a « voluntary separation program » that ended late last month, but employees were told that the institution`s staff remained « unbalanced. » Bahl said the institution had reduced negotiations with the union on a new staff contract last month because it had « always finalized staff initiatives. » The university is currently advertising about 30 professional positions and will begin recruiting up to 40 university positions at the end of the month.
