Employers delay on IEU Claim for Catholic systemic schools

After four months of bargaining, there has been little progress with the Catholic Commission for Employment Relations (CCER) failing to respond on many issues and saying this is a matter for further discussions with dioceses. However, despite having met with all dioceses, we are still awaiting a formal response from each of them. If we do not see significant progress in the negotiations by mid March, the Union will consider calling on members to vote in a ballot to take protected industrial action.
