The University of Tasmania (UTAS) has recently reached a new staff agreement for 2019, which sets out the terms and conditions of employment for all staff members. The agreement covers a wide range of topics, including salary increases, leave entitlements, and performance management.

One of the key highlights of the new agreement is the salary increases that have been negotiated for UTAS staff members. The agreement provides for a 2% increase in salaries from 1 January 2020, followed by further increases of 2.5% in 2021 and 2022. This will provide a welcome boost for staff members who have been struggling with the rising cost of living.

Staff members will now have access to an additional 10 days of sick leave per year, while the parental leave provisions have been extended to allow for up to 26 weeks of paid leave for both mothers and fathers.

The agreement also includes changes to performance management processes, which aim to provide more support and guidance to staff members. The new processes will focus on goal-setting, feedback and development, and will provide staff with regular opportunities to discuss their progress and identify areas for improvement.

Overall, the UTAS Staff Agreement 2019 represents a positive step forward in the employment conditions of UTAS staff members. With improved salary increases, leave entitlements and performance management processes, staff members can look forward to a more supportive and rewarding work environment.
