The University of Queensland Enterprise Agreement 2018-2021 (PDF, 2.3 MB) is UQ's current enterprise agreement. 

It is a single-enterprise agreement covering eligible academic and professional staff and TESOL language teachers.

The Agreement operates from 19 March 2019. It is due to expire on 30 June 2021, but will remain in effect until it is terminated or replaced by a new enterprise agreement.

Key changes from the previous Enterprise Agreement include:

  • aggregate salary increases ranging from 8.0% to 11.2% over the life of the Agreement, depending on level, with staff at lower pay increments receiving the highest percentage increases
  • introduction of 17% superannuation for all eligible staff on fixed term contracts from January 2021
  • introduction of 14 weeks paid parental leave (primary caregiver leave) in addition to generous existing parental leave benefits
  • introduction of up to 10 days paid leave to all staff (including casuals) experiencing domestic and family violence
  • introduction of 5 days paid cultural leave for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff to attend significant cultural events
  • introduction of the right to cash out recreation leave in certain circumstances
  • commitment to increase the employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff
  • professional staff fixed term conversion to continuing employment where the criteria set out in the clause are satisfied.
