CPSU NSW update: University of Technology Sydney

CPSU NSW Secures In-principle Agreement on New Enterprise Agreement

The parties met for the final face to face meeting on Tuesday 28 February 2023.

The CPSU NSW is pleased to inform members that the bargaining team has reached an in-principle on the draft replacement Enterprise Agreement (EA) with UTS.

This will be a single agreement covering Professional and Academic Staff. 

EB9 will expire on 31 August 2025

On balance, the current draft EA is an improvement to conditions and wages that matter most to our members, which is critical in addressing inflation and the cost of living.

At the final meeting the parties focused on Professional Staff Development:

  • UTS has been reluctant to support our claim with a $$$ amount.
  • CPSU NSW expects UTS to report on their Professional Staff Development expenditure every six months during the life of EB9.

(This was not a huge ask, especially considering the commitment of other institutions such as Western Sydney University will provide $4.6m per annum for professional training)

  • A review of each clause of the agreement in preparation for in-principle endorsement.

The other Bargaining Party

The NTEU declined to endorse the agreement on an in-principle basis on 28 February 2023. They will meet with their members on 16 March 2023 to discuss their future actions.

Next Steps – CPSU NSW All Members Meeting

The CPSU NSW will hold an all-members meeting on Thursday 9 March at 12:30 discuss the EA and its new benefits in a comprehensive Q&A.

This will be a Zoom meeting with details to follow shortly.
