Settlement acknowledges and values staff at Awanuiarangi

Media Release 25th February 2016

Settlement acknowledges and values staff at Awanuiarangi

Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi and the Tertiary Institutes Allied Staff Association (TIASA) have settled negotiations for the renewal of the collective agreement for Wananga staff.

Bargaining for the renewal of the collective agreement took place with the back drop of a difficult and challenging last twelve months for Awanuiarangi and, the ongoing challenges of funding in the tertiary sector.

“The settlement is an excellent one in the circumstances” said TIASA Chief Executive, Peter Joseph. “This is the result of a relationship of trust and respect that has been built over a number of years and, what we believe is a genuine commitment by Awanuiarangi to value their Allied Staff and acknowledge their contribution to the wananga”.

The settlement provides for a two year term with a $950 increase to salary rates in the first year and, $1100 in the second.

“A flat dollar increase is viewed by both parties as a fairer approach as it acknowledges that those at the lower end of the salary scale are disadvantaged by across-the-board percentage increases” said Joseph. “Awanuiarangi are to be congratulated on their positive and value based bargaining” he said.

“TIASA, the ‘Specialist Voice’ for Allied Staff in the tertiary sector has an enviable record in collective agreement settlements throughout the country” said Joseph.
