The IEU will meet this Wednesday, February 12 at 10:00 a.m. with the Catholic Labour Relations Board to discuss our requests for a new enterprise agreement for teachers and support staff in Catholic schools. In recent weeks, teachers at Queensland Catholic schools have been inquiring about the number of certification processes for the most comprehensive and lead teacher (HALT). The proposed enterprise agreements must now be submitted to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) for legal approval. Presentation of the amendments and key features of the proposed agreement. It may only be in the 4th Catholic Employing Authorities Single Enterprise Collective Agreement – Diocesan Schools of Queensland 2019-2023 (proposed EA) Cairns Catholic Education Services Principals` Agreement 2016 . Committee approval may take some time depending on the complexity of the audited agreements and the workload of the FwC. Other outstanding issues include improving the pay of teachers on unpaid parental leave, greater clarity of teachers` rights to paid maternity leave and better access to permanent positions for temporary teachers.
Voting on the proposed new business agreements ended on Sunday, June 28, 2020. Once the proposed agreements have been approved by the FWC, they will come into force seven days later.
