Workload Management System

This branch:

  • welcomes progress made in the workload management system (WMS) negotiations over the last year
  • finds the latest proposal from management for a tariff of 0.70 FTE per 20 students (for masters- level courses, BEd and foundation degrees) unacceptable and unsustainable given that the overwhelming majority of courses require and currently operate on 0.75 FTE or greater

The branch notes that:

  • any reductions would be a unilateral change in the conditions of service for the majority of MA staff

Therefore, this branch resolves:

  •  to support the branch negotiators proposal of an allocation of at least 0.75 FTE.

Resolution passed at branch meeting on 21 September 2011
