Carinity Education Collective Bargaining
VOTE NO to stop employer stripping your working conditions
Forced employer ballot seeks to avoid protected action
Carinity Education is now forcing employees to ballot on an inferior agreement which would see staff working more for less.
This is in spite of serious employee concerns and is a direct challenge to the employee-endorsed protected industrial action. The “agreement” being put forward in the forced employer ballot has one objective – to strip the working conditions of Carinity Education employees.
Carinity Education’s plan to strip you of your working conditions is very clear:
- Scrap top-tier teacher classifications, meaning the most experienced teachers could earn up to $8,000 less per year than their state and Catholic school counterparts.
- Strip working conditions including job share, redundancy provisions and access to the First Aid allowance for school officers.
- Significantly increase the hours of work expected by staff in leadership positions.
- Limit employees’ access to contemporary leave conditions such as natural disaster leave and domestic violence leave.
The only way to protect your current working conditions is to VOTE NO.
If the majority of staff VOTE NO, then the onus is on the employer to return to the negotiating table with an improved offer.
