The ASU Negotiating Team is continuing to meet with management to negotiate a new enterprise agreement. We had a productive meeting this morning where we secured some important wins.

These improvements included the introduction of time limits on how long a position may remain vacant after someone leaves, time limits and an appeals process for study leave, and the introduction of a gender equality dispute clause.

We are scheduled to meet with management again next week to discuss crucial remaining issues like leave and the wage offer.

This Friday, we will be holding a zoom meeting to provide an update on where each claim is up to and get members feedback about which are the most important claims that you want prioritised. This is a paid meeting. Managers have been notified that the meeting is occurring but you should notify your supervisor if you want to attend.
