Enterprise Agreement

The Enterprise Agreement applies to all academic and professional/general staff of the University. It does not apply to executive and senior staff staff who are remunerated in accordance with the CSU Senior Executive Remuneration Model.

An Enterprise Agreement is the formal agreement on pay and conditions established jointly by the University and its staff. This Agreement takes place of Awards and agreements that would otherwise apply.

When a current agreement term is nearing its end date a process of negotiation between the University and staff, represented by relevant unions, takes place to form a new agreement. The unions representing staff at CSU are the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU), the Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU) and United Voice. This process of negotiating a new agreement is known as Enterprise Bargaining.

Once, an in principle agreement is reached, staff have the opportunity to vote on the agreement. If staff vote in favour, the agreement is then lodged by the University with the Fair Work Commission (FWC). The FWC assesses and approves Enterprise Agreements.
