General Staff Enterprise Agreement 2010

It has been decided that in future the University will refer to General Staff as Professional Staff because this better reflects the type of work and the status of the work that such staff are carrying out. When the next Enterprise Agreement is being negotiated the title will be changed to reflect this. The name of the Agreement cannot be changed at this point.
