Another excellent settlement for tertiary sector

Another excellent settlement for tertiary sector

TIASA (Tertiary Institutes Allied Staff Association) agreed a settlement of the collective agreement that covers Allied Staff at Southern Institute of Technology (SIT).

“This settlement is an excellent one in the current environment and builds on the ground breaking settlements that TIASA has negotiated at Western Institute of Technology earlier this year and, more recently, at Otago Polytechnic” said TIASA’s Chief Executive, Peter Joseph.

The SIT settlement provides for a two year term with flat dollar increase of $1000 effective from 1st July 2015, and a further $1000 form 1st of July next year.

“This bargaining approach acknowledges that those at the lower end of pay scales are disadvantaged by across the board percentage wage increases. The flat dollar settlement of the SIT collective agreement will provide our members with increases that translate into percentages of 1.5% to 3% in each year”, said Joseph. “SIT are to be congratulated on their positive and fair bargaining approach” he said.

TIASA as the “Specialist Voice” for Allied Staff in the tertiary sector boasts an enviable record in collective agreement settlements throughout the country.

“The level of settlement varies dependent on the financial state of the institution we are bargaining with but, where we have had to negotiate percentage increases, those too have been the best across the sector”, said Joseph.

TIASA’s membership covers a wide cross section including Cleaners; Groundstaff; Security; IT; Marketing; HR; Counselling; Student Advisors; Administrators; Library/Learning Resources and third tier Management.
