University Of Canberra Enterprise Agreement 2019

In January, Vice Chancellor Deep Saini revealed that the federal government`s freeze on student places, just two days before Christmas, would leave the university with $1.8 million less than it had already taken into account in its 2018 budget. By 2019, that deficit would likely double, he said. The agreement applies to all physicians employed by the Health Directorate and Calvary Public Health Care ACT Inc. (this is not the case for visiting medical officers). But final decisions on which positions will be replaced are still being worked out, the university confirmed, while work on its human resources planning strategy continues. Vice Chancellor Brian Schmidt told Fairfax that while the effects of the freeze are being strongly felt by the university, he is not yet considering the prospect of downsizing as the ANU wants to increase its philanthropic funding.
