PSA General Staff Ratify Settlement At College

JOINT MEDIA RELEASE by the PSA and Dunedin College of Education

PSA members employed at the Dunedin College of Education have ratified an offer by CEO Dr Roger Green to settle the negotiations for a collective employment agreement.

Dr Green and the PSA advocate Mark Ryan said that they were pleased that the negotiations had been concluded positively, with a commitment between the parties to work together for the benefit of the College, staff and students.

"We had our moments but the strength of the relationship between the union and the College meant that we were able to resolve the outstanding issues in these negotiations without any acrimony or recrimination" Dr Green and Mr Ryan said.

The terms of the settlement include a 3.5% increase to wages back dated to the 1st of July 2001 for an 18 month term agreement that will expire on the 31st of December 2002, the restoration of a College holiday on the 27th of December each year and an agreement to look at the existing salary bands and classifications for general staff.
