Enterprise Agreement Catholic Education Sa

As you know, our respective negotiating teams have been working for almost two years to reach agreement on a number of work-related issues. Despite good faith, vigorous discussions and hard work, we have not been able to find an amicable solution on some issues. We write to you on behalf of the 16 Catholic school employers and the Independent Education Union (SA) institution. Certification of highly qualified and superior teachers has three main objectives: AITSL Australian Professional Standards for Teachers Formal recognition of exemplary teachers can make an important contribution to the quality of teaching and leadership in schools. The code of conduct articulates the standards of conduct demanded by all employees of the Catholic SA. It also helps all employees to clearly understand their expectations and responsibilities and duties during working hours and outside of working hours. It is available for download below. Together, we still have a lot of work to do to draft the revised document, to make it available to you for review and then to resume the voting process. The Charter guides how employees interact and work with students, colleagues, parents, school community professionals and other members of the school community. It is available for download below.

The current Catholic Education SA Enterprise Agreement provides an annual salary of USD 3,000 for highly qualified teachers and $4,000 for Lead Teachers (pro-rated for part-time employees) for certification. However, both parties agree that we want to end negotiations so that employees can benefit as quickly as possible from negotiated increases.

We are aware that the staff of Catholic schools, who are so committed to the children and young people they serve, deserve their salaries, the increase in allowances and the additional payment. In this context, each party agreed that we should withdraw our respective rights and offers, vote on the proposed enterprise agreement, and allow wage and salary increases and wage refunds. We agreed together that the current enterprise agreement should be submitted to you for approval, with changes agreed with: certification improves the professionalism of teachers so that they gain recognition for the quality of their teaching and promote their career while staying in the classroom. The following links will help you in your application process and in finding additional information about certification. We also agreed that if the vote and the enterprise agreement approved by the Commission for Fair Work were successful, the enterprise agreement would be operational for a period of three years from the date of approval of the Fair Labour Commission. We plan to resume negotiations on the next enterprise agreement in 2019. The minimum right to our schools is described in the Catholic Education SA Enterprise Agreement 2017.
