We continued the positive and constructive process between the university and the unions, which marked previous negotiations within UniSA. We discussed how the agreement can support flexibility, fairness, clarity and coherence. The search for a possible merger by UniSA and the University of Adelaide has no bearing on the negotiations. Some enterprise agreements offer an alternative to the salaries and conditions set by the award. Others refer to certain attribution conditions and set other conditions. Increased training allowances and allowances from July 1, 2018 If you are a party to a signed enterprise agreement, you must apply for SAET authorization within 21 days for SAET to approve it. After approval, the agreement will enter into force. SAET may also reconcile or give instructions when parties are working to negotiate an agreement. While UniSA was in contact with its employees, students and the community regarding the strategic future, the negotiation teams of UniSA, NTEU and CPSU continued our productive negotiations.
The new discussions with the unions will undoubtedly build on the solid foundations we have established in previous agreements and strengthen our culture of advice and cooperation so that UniSA can deliver on our promise to our students and achieve our strategy as an Australian business university. At our last meeting on April 5, the NTEU presented an overview of its disaster report and the university outlined its key priorities for a new enterprise agreement. The university also provided an overview of the significant funding challenges we face in light of the changes announced by the Commonwealth government in December 2017. To view the official copy of an enterprise agreement, please contact SAET Registry. Our mutual consideration of the collective agreement was supported by the focus on communications that could complement the agreement by highlighting commitments or expectations, for example by ensuring that staff and students are aware of the University`s obligations regarding Aboriginal employment, inclusive education and our reconciliation action plan. The new enterprise agreement and a comprehensive guide explaining the changes, including an overview of the clause clause, and other important documents are available on the University of Enterprise Negotiation website.

There are still a number of important issues to be resolved, including wages, but we look forward to working constructively with the unions to bring all elements of our negotiations to a robust and modern agreement for the University of South Australia.
An enterprise agreement sets out the conditions of employment of workers covered by the agreement. It is negotiated through a premium security network to help employers and workers define working conditions that will support their needs. The university worked on the details of the new enterprise agreement, as an agreement in principle on key issues was announced in December last year.
