Charles Darwin University welcomes news Fair Work Commission appeal was successful
Charles Darwin University Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Hilary Winchester, AM, has welcomed news that the University has been successful in its appeal of an earlier Fair Work Commission decision concerning the Enterprise Agreement voted on by staff last year.
The decision by the Full Bench of the Fair Work Commission was to allow the appeal application and to remit the application for approval of the Agreement to Commissioner Platt for re-hearing.
Professor Winchester said the successful appeal was good news for the 62 per cent of staff who voted YES in a ballot last year.
"We fully expected to have this appeal allowed, after the surprising decision by the Fair Work Commission in January," Professor Winchester said.
“We are hoping that Commissioner Platt now accepts the 2022 Agreement in full so it can be certified,” she said.
"We know that almost two thirds of our staff have voted in favour of this Agreement and so we felt it was important to appeal this matter," said Professor Winchester.
