University of Sydney – Members Bargaining Update

At todays bargaining meeting the university put a wage offer on the table.

This was

  • 4.6 per cent and a $2,000 sign on to be paid upon commencement of the new agreement.
  • July 2024 –  3.25 per cent
  • July 2025 – 3.25 per cent
  • July 2026 – 3.5 per cent

It should be recognised that, in July 2022, staff received a 2.1 per cent pay increase + $1000 to cover the period from the end of the last EA to the present. What this means is that, from July 2022 to June 2027, staff will have received a flat overall increase of 16.7 per cent over five financial years, plus cash payments of $3000.

The agreement would be for a 3 year period from Fair Work Commission approval.

Come along to the CPSU NSW members meeting tomorrow or on Thursday to share your thoughts.
