Catholic Teachers’ Bargaining 2021

Respect. Recognition. Reliability.

Bargaining for a new Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) for teachers in CEWA schools is now underway.

The IEUWA Office has developed a Log of Claims for the next Teachers’ Agreement based on extensive discussions with members. This document has been amended and endorsed by IEUWA Delegates and will guide IEUWA Bargaining representatives when negotiating for key improvements to salaries and conditions in the new EBA.

Read all previous bargaining updates to members here.

Importantly, the IEUWA only consults and represents IEUWA members – so this is the perfect time to invite your colleagues to join you in the IEU so they can have their say and play their part in supporting a process which will benefit everyone in Catholic education. The more IEU members we have standing behind us at the bargaining table, the stronger we will be!

Since bargaining last took place, CEWA have moved into the federal industrial relations system. That means that CEWA employees and bargaining must adhere to the conditions laid out in the Fair Work Act. Teachers are covered by the Educational Services (Teachers) Award.

There’s never been a more important time to make sure that you are a member of your union.

This agreement will lock in pay and conditions for you and all Catholic School teachers for the next few years.
