A number of negotiating issues have been identified and addressed, including quantum increases, the duration of the proposed agreement, terms of employment and current experimentation with staff functions. Discussions focused on scoping and further clarification, and more detailed negotiations were expected in subsequent rounds. The starting point of the new negotiation process will be the agreement in principle with the AEU NSW Teachers` Federation. Business agreements can be tailored to the needs of some companies. An agreement should be overall better for an employee when compared to the corresponding bonuses or rewards. You will soon receive two more emails from me. The first will inform you that TAFE NSW agrees to renegotiate for an enterprise agreement that can be approved by the Fair Work Commission. The second will provide you with a new NERR. In the event of a breach of an enterprise agreement, the employer can pay a fine of 60 penalty units.

They may also be compensated financially for the offence. The agreed 2.5% salary increase will be paid on February 23, 2017. This includes retroactive payments from the first full pay period, after TAFE NSW reached an agreement with the NSW Teachers Federation on December 2, 2016. Enterprise agreements are collective agreements between employers and workers on employment conditions. The Fair Labour Commission can provide information on the process of drafting enterprise agreements, evaluate and approve agreements. We can also deal with disputes over the terms of the agreements. Accordingly, I would like to point out that TAFE NSW is terminating, with immediate effect, the ongoing negotiation process for an enterprise agreement to replace the TAFE Commission of NSW Teachers and Related Employees Enterprise Agreement 2013. There is also a document that can answer your questions about the benefits of the current proposal, what is proposed for change and what will not change — click here to see. Fair Work Commission publishes enterprise agreements on this website. For more information on enterprise agreements, see the frequently asked questions or in this brochure.

In the case of enterprise agreements other than the Greenfields agreements, employers who enter into the agreement must inform their employees of their right to negotiate the agreement by a negotiator such as a union prior to the agreement. Depending on the workers, there may be several bargaining representatives who will be covered by the agreement. The operating contract is then negotiated, in which case all parties must participate in good faith. After the negotiations, staff will receive a copy of the agreement and will be invited to vote on it. The agreement is reached when the majority of employees sign it.
