Supporting the independent education community

Update: Catholic systemic schools EA


Negotiations between the Union and the Catholic Commission for Employment Relations (CCER) have reached a critical point as we await a response from the employers on significant elements of the IEU claim for teachers and support staff.

As members would be aware, as well as seeking to finalise the content of a new Enterprise Agreement, the Union has also been meeting with individual dioceses to discuss work intensification and workloads and to pursue improvements to each Work Practices Agreement (WPA).

The employers have agreed to back pay rises for teachers and support staff but there are still other outstanding issues.
