ENTERPRISE BARGAINING 

Proposed new Enterprise Agreements supported

Voting on the proposed new Enterprise Agreements closed on Sunday 28 June 2020.

Of those eligible employees who voted, 94.7 per cent of staff in diocesan schools and 93.2 per cent of staff in Religious Institute/Public Juridic Persons schools voted in favour of the agreements.

The proposed Enterprise Agreements must now be submitted to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) for legal approval. 

Once the proposed Agreements are approved by the FWC, they come into legal operation seven days later. 

The FWC approval can take some time depending on the complexity of the Agreements being considered and the workload of the FWC. 

It may not be until Term 4 that legal approval is obtained.
