If employees agree to maintain wages at all levels of the organization, which means that a 2% pay increase is not passed on to the current staff contract, about 50 jobs are expected to be saved. Professor Black said the university had reached an agreement in principle on the package with the national and national leadership of the National University Union and Community and the public sector union, but staff have not yet voted on the package. With respect to casual workers, Professor Black stated that all employees who had existing relationships with the university had prioritized for employment The University has taken all steps to ensure that the information on these pages is correct, but please note that changes may occur. The latest information is available by phone on 0800 61 62 63 or at www.auckland.ac.nz/utas. The package also includes support for flexible rules for staff wishing to modify their activity group, the possibility of voluntary contributions from staff, 65 of whom have already contributed $350,000, and the prioritization of voluntary measures such as early retirement or voluntary redundancies. The conditions of employment at the UTS are determined by various laws, collective agreements, common law and university police, practice and statutes. The industrial conditions of UTS staff are mandatory: “People`s livelihoods are at risk – academics, tutors, administrative staff, library staff, catering staff, ground staff, cleaning staff and many others – all with families trying to get by.” For more information, please contact UTAS liaison officers: “We have a close management of empty spaces, which is why we are looking for a minimum number of new employees and only those who already have a relationship with the university,” he said. But there is still a gap of $40 million to $50 million a year, which the university said, had to be filled from its salary budget. It has been a long process, but negotiations on a staff agreement at the University of Tasmania (UTAS) have finally been completed, which has yielded very impressive results for the members.
“Our total sales in one year are normally just over $600 million,” said Professor Black. He said the number of international students for the second semester had fallen to 700 this year, after 1400 in the second half of 2019.

Those who are currently still on the super 9.5% see their super-increase in June 2021. It is important that temporary staff now have the right to be extended if work continues and there are no performance issues. “We are a clear positive right now [for local students] because people, as is often the case in difficult times, are going back to education to get the skills they need.” He said the package would not have an impact on the student experience and did not include it in the university`s research. During this nearly two-year process, members demonstrated perseverance, ongoing interest and active engagement. The strong commitment of the members of the Union helped guide the negotiations and forced a hesitant management of the UTAS at the negotiating table. Some employees will receive even more, with most casual academics receiving an additional 5.2% for the standard tutor rate, representing a total increase of 13.7% for this casual staff over the duration of the agreement. But Professor Black said the government had done a good job of supporting the university.
UTAS students are expected to adhere to the same high academic standards as all other students at the university. Thank you to all the members who supported the pricing campaign at its various stages for your faith and patience.
