The University of New England has reached “in-principle agreement” with union and staff bargaining representatives on terms for a new professional staff enterprise agreement, following more than two years of negotiations. Click HERE for a copy of UNE’s proposal.

The bargaining process has been long and, at times, arduous. The CPSU NSW would like to acknowledge the many, many hours contributed by our local negotiating team and thank them for their insight, commitment and unwavering support.
As a democratic union, members are asked to vote on whether the CPSU NSW recommends or rejects UNE’s offer.
If a majority of CPSU NSW members vote to endorse the offer, we will write to professional staff encouraging them to vote YES when the proposal is put to a ballot of all staff.
If a majority of members vote to reject the offer we will write to professional staff encouraging them to vote NO to the proposal when it is put to a ballot of all staff.
