INDUSTRIAL REPORT

Canberra Institute of Technology
In April 2012 the Commissioner for
Work Safety, Mark McCabe, issued an
Improvement Notice on the CIT, due to its
lack of adequate policies and procedures
to promote a workplace free from bullying
and harassment. At the same time, the
Minister for Education gave his own
directives to CIT and requested the
Commissioner for Public Administration to
investigate complaints of bullying. These
investigations are ongoing at the time of
writing this report.
The AEU has been actively involved in both
these processes, with a view to promoting
long-term cultural change within CIT.
As part of this the AEU has been
attending fortnightly meetings of the CIT
Workplace Improvement Consultation
Group. This group has been advising
CIT senior management on how best to
change internal policies and procedures
to ensure that healthy workplaces are
promoted across all CIT campuses.
The enterprise agreement that covers
teachers at CIT is also expiring on 30
June 2013. Members are invited to
provide your views about what you would
like to see negotiated as part of the next
agreement. This is being done initially
through discussions at TAFE Council and
Sub-branch meetings and will then be
followed up with an online survey. Now
is the time for members to speak up so
that we can ensure that the issues that
matter to you most are raised around the
bargaining table early next year.
