Vu Enterprise Agreement 2019

Professor Ling said they would offer employees a 7.18 percent increase over the duration of the agreement, which would last until 2022. Lorraine Ling says the proposed enterprise agreement is “the best offer VU can make to employees now and for the next four years.” The value table below applies to TAFE professors who are covered by the 2019 Victoria University Agreement: Ms. HARTLAND (Western Metropolitan) — My question is addressed to Minister Tierney today, and I ask this question on behalf of one of my good friends, Paul Adams. Victoria University (VU) has targeted Paul Adams, David Garland and Stuart Martin, all local officers of the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU), for dismissal. This comes shortly before negotiations on enterprise negotiations begin. The VU`s behavior in recent months on how they handled the layoffs has been pretty brutal. My question is: what do you think the state government can do to put an end to the union`s union tactic of busting the VU? Melbourne`s Victoria University has called on employees to vote “yes” to a collective agreement for businesses, which increases employee working hours and streamlines dispute resolution procedures due to the deteriorating financial deficit at the university. Ms. TIERNEY (Minister of Training and Qualifications) – I thank the Member for his question and for his continued interest in Victoria University. As the member would know, the labour relations issues that are dealt with at the university are the province of the university, and the Victorian government`s labour relations policy does not cover the university as such. It is recalled that, in the run-up to the current agreement, it expires this year, and the current agreement mentions the provisions relating to amendments and dismissals, as well as the issues raised by Ms. Hartland with respect to those who have difficulty working at Victoria University. “After several consecutive years in deficit, Victoria University must now return to a surplus over the next four years and reduce spending and increase revenues and productivity,” said Lorraine Ling, team leader for enterprise negotiation at Victoria University.

In 2019, we launched VU`s Popular Strategy 2019-2020 to create the best environment for all employees. It is welcome, strongest, support, integration and diversity. The proposed agreement does not have the support of the National Higher Education Union, which was excluded from the process after management said it was “no longer in a position to incorporate any other changes” that the union wanted. Ms. HARTLAND (Western Metropolitan) — Thank you for that response, Minister. One of the problems that I understand will be the consequence of all these layoffs is that courses like the Master of Communication and Bachelor of Marketing will remain without staff next year, and that is because there are so many layoffs that they have no one to teach them.
