Sydney Catholic Schools Enterprise Agreement

Apr 13th, 2021 | By | Category: Uncategorized

Enterprise agreements are enterprise-level agreements between employers and workers on terms of employment. Staff of the Diocese of Broken Bay are subject to the following agreements: Teachers and facilitators of NSW and ACT-Catholic schools will vote in early November on their new NSW and ACT Catholic Systemic Systemic Enterprise Agreement 2020 (EA), most likely from Monday, November 9 to Friday, November 13. The union also assumes that at about the same time there will be a vote by principals on the federal agreement on systemic Catholic principals. The dates of the vote on the separate main enterprise agreement for Sydney Catholic schools have not yet been confirmed and may be a little later. Members should have received salary increases as early as 2020 dating back to January (from July for ACT teachers). Under the EA, a further increase of 2.28% will apply from January 2021 (ACT teachers will receive a further 3% increase in July 2021). Five days of emergency leave There will be a new right to leave of up to five days per calendar year for workers who do not come to work due to a “declared natural disaster”. Disasters are reported by the NSW government with respect to a particular event at a given location, depending on the amount of damage caused. If you can`t come to work because of a tide, storm or snowfall, bushfire or other natural disaster and you can`t work from home, but it`s not a declared natural disaster, you can now access personal/care leave to cover absences.

The next steps will give staff a copy of EA`s proposal and an explanation of changes to worker abandonment. Your employer will also confirm to employees the voting dates and the organization of the vote. The union is asking all members to vote “yes” and ensure a high turnout. Don`t hesitate to contact your IEU organizer if you have any questions. Dioceses for Families and Domestic Violence have agreed to comply with public sector conditions in NSW for paid family leave and domestic violence. This provides 10 days per calendar year for full-time and part-time workers who experience domestic and family violence, and can be used to seek alternative housing, follow legal advice and appointments, appear in court, etc. Changes in Teacher Classifications The benefit for teachers of the new EA will be to count unpaid parental leave as a teaching service for salary progression for up to one year. The leave is counted at the full-time equivalent (RDT) you would have been employed to if you had not taken the leave and is credited upon your return to work. This new provision applies to leave that began after January 1, 2020. A small number of teachers who worked before 2014 may not have yet switched to the pay scale – it will now be from the beginning of 2021. For some teachers, this may lead to a pay increase, but it will only happen if you have a professional certification from the teacher.

If you do not have this status z.B because you worked part-time, you should try to finalize it as soon as possible.
