Survey – unpaid overtime


The Union is conducting a survey of support staff to find out how many unpaid hours school support staff are performing. Click here


Early in Term 3, IEU will email all Catholic systemic support staff with a brief survey seeking to establish the quantum of time worked but not remunerated.


It’s a great opportunity for the Union to gauge the value of your goodwill. The survey will cover how, when, why and how much extra time is being worked and if it’s being treated and paid as overtime or if time in lieu is provided.


Importantly, the survey will also look at the treatment of time spent on mandatory professional development to see if it's being undertaken in paid work time.


Have your say and encourage others at your workplace to assist the Union as we enter the negotiation phase for the next enterprise agreement.


A big thank you to the support staff members that attended June Council who reviewed and provided input into the development of the survey.
