Southern Cross University Enterprise Agreement has been approved

Southern Cross University Enterprise Agreement has been approved – May 2019 (PDF version)

Thanks to the hard work of CPSU NSW members at SCU, our new Enterprise Agreement has been approved and is now in force!

This means all of the new conditions and rights that we managed to negotiate are now enforceable. This includes:

  • A new consultation clause that provides an expanded process and more opportunities for input from staff and the CPSU NSW during workplace change.
  • Fifteen days of Domestic and Family Violence Leave for all staff
  • New rights to better a position description that accurately reflects the work you do
  • Improved classification, conversion and workload rights
  • Improved access to flextime
  • The Christmas shutdown period locked in every year.

We will circulate a final updated copy of the new agreement as soon as we can.

Your next pay rise is 1.4 per cent, due on 30 June this year.

Congratulations to the negotiating team and to all CPSU NSW members on this great outcome. Don’t forget to ask your workmates to join the CPSU NSW so we can grow an even stronger union.
