For more information on negotiating business agreements, please visit the Fair Work Commission`s website: Enterprise Agreements are written agreements under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth). They contain employment policy terms negotiated as part of the business bargaining process and apply to certain categories of workers.

Darius Pfitzner, head of the National Tertiary Education Union NT, said he had consoled employees who were not sure they would get a job by the end of the year.

Mr. Pfitzner stated that the university was not aware of the situation with its staff. “I can`t walk on every campus without being arrested and telling horror stories about how people feel. How they feel threatened. “The university has had a problem in recent years, where spending has continued to increase and this has not been associated with increased revenues.” “I have people crying in my office about the potential to lose jobs.

Professor Maddocks said this was one of the main reasons the university shifted its focus to increasing its number of international students. “The university has sheded down by not vacancies, and there are a number in each section. The job cuts are intended to rein in spending due to the significant funding pressure that the university has held accountable on two key issues. “It will be closer to 100 places, based on my current assessment,” he said. “Starting in 2020, universities will be able to increase their funding in line with population growth if they meet certain performance requirements. The CDU`s higher education companies have recorded a surplus over the past ten years,” he said. I`m very worried.
Employees have been told that we have been in trouble for the last two years and longer, but we have not been given details of the problem we are in,” he said. Professor Maddocks confirmed that there were plans to re-examine both higher education and the vocational training system within the CDU. After weeks of speculation about restructuring and job losses at Charles Darwin University (CDU), Vice-Chancellor Simon Maddocks has finally presented a figure that shows just how significant job cuts could be.
