Multi Enterprise Agreement Support Staff

The Union has met with the Association of Independent Schools (AIS) to discuss our ambitions and we have scheduled further meetings. The EU is aiming for a three-year contract which is due to start on 1 January 2021. No agreement yet in independent schools The Union is currently negotiating with the Association of Independent Schools (AIS) new agreements that will apply to some 200 independent schools of NSW and the ACT to replace contracts expiring in October this year. The Federation of Independent Schools has informed the union that it does not intend to meet with the union again by November, and it is not certain that new enterprise agreements will be negotiated. The AIS also states that wage increases in 2021, if any, would be set on a discretionary basis outside the bargaining process. AIS launches negotiations The Association of Independent Schools has indicated to the Union that it is ready to negotiate a new enterprise agreement for NSW teachers and support and operations staff.

Modern prices are not as comprehensive as the old awards, and although some conditions have been maintained, some have inevitably been lost.

If your school does not have a collective agreement for you, your terms and conditions are set by the corresponding Modern Prize.

There is a particular stream of negotiations for contracts with several companies to allow low-paid workers who have not participated in collective bargaining at the enterprise level to reach an agreement on several companies.
