Ongoing correspondence between IEUwa and CEWA regarding the commencement of bargaining.
Bargaining RepresentativeDr Debra Sayce, Acting Executive Director, wrote to Angela Briant, General Secretary IEUwa, to advise that she has been appointed by the Employers to act as their bargaining representative and each of the Employers were willing to bargaining for replacement EBA’s.
Initiation of Bargaining
The Independent Education Union WA (IEUwa) wrote to the Employers* to initiate bargaining for replacement EBA’s pursuant to s42 of the Industrial Relations Act 1979 (WA). The IEUwa also indicated an intention to bargain for an EBA to cover Catholic Education Office employees.
* The Employers refers to the 12 employers within Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA), who each have individual teaching and non-teaching staff Enterprise Bargaining Agreements which cover the staff within their respective schools. These agreements are traditionally identical in content so that all teachers and non-teachers across CEWA have the same basic terms and conditions of employment.
* The Employers are:
o Edmund Rice Education Australia
o John XXIII College Inc
o Loreto Sisters Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary
o Mercy Education Limited
o Norbertine Canons Incorporated
o Oblates of Mary Immaculate
o Servite Friars
o The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Perth
o The Roman Catholic Bishop of Bunbury
o The Roman Catholic Bishop of Broome
o The Roman Catholic Bishop of Geraldton
