Workloads – Professional Staff

Recognises the need for:

  • Balance between working life and family/social responsibilities.

  • Reasonable workloads and responsibility of supervisors to ensure workloads are fair, equitable and manageable.

  • Identifies primary indicators of unreasonable workload (ongoing need to work excessive hours and inability to clear accrued leave).

  • Other factors to consider, nature of work, work patterns, work environment, volume of work, employee turnover and employee performance.

  • Establishes the General Staff Consultative Committee as a forum to facilitate consultation on matters concerning unreasonable workload.


Reinstatement of some 2004 provisions

Reinstatement of some 2004 provisions

  • Some provisions were removed in the 2006 Agreement due to the Government’s Higher Education Workplace Relations Requirements.
