98% vote ‘Yes’ for new Catholic Systemic EA

Congratulations to the thousands of members in Catholic Systemic schools who voted in favour of a new Enterprise Agreement the other week. A fantastic 98% of votes went in favour of the union endorsed deal, that will secure 2.3% pay rises for next year as well as make meaningful impacts on your accreditation and entitlements!


2020 has been a turbulent year, even before the additional disruption of negotiations proceedings. But with your continued effort and engagement, we have managed to secure signigificant victories that will stand you in good stead in the years to come!


In addition to securing 2.5% for 2020, with backpay, and 2.3% for 2021, the union has also managed to establish a strong collaborative working party comprised of IEU Support Staff members as we continue to negotiate for a recalibration of salaries for support staff members to match those awarded to support staff working in state schools. Watch this space, because this campaign is just getting started!


We're stronger together, congratulations to everyone involved!

In solidarity,
