University of Newcastle – Outstanding claim updates

University of Newcastle – Outstanding claim updates – September 2018 (PDF version)

Your union met with management on 18 September with the aim of finalising, as far as possible, the outstanding claims on the table.

We are pleased to advise that agreement in principle was reached in regard to the Organisational Change clause, the Managing Under Performance clause and the Staff Development clause.

Remaining issues relating to Academic Probation and Academic Under Performance are still under discussion.

We have come back to management with an alternative to their pay offer and suggestions as to how we could reach agreement in this area.

Should management acquiesce, we would expect the next meeting on 25 September to be the final, enabling us to seek your endorsement by the end of the month.

On a separate note, in relation to Ron Hunter, we were advised that a family only cremation was held on 17 September. The PSA/CPSU has been in discussion with the university in relation to a memorial for Ron on the campus. We will be in touch with you when this has been finalised.
