Our key role is to establish and maintain the relationships and agreements that underpin the University`s international partnerships. We also advise and assist faculties in establishing their partnership agreements. Prior to these agreements, UWA already offered self-identification credit to students who joined UWA prior to the completion of the community school diploma, but then received appropriate credit for completing the requirements of the associated program. This allows eligible students to obtain an associate degree retroactively in addition to the bachelor`s degree at UWA. NTEU members who oppose VAAs are concerned that treaty change will not save jobs, but show management that workers are simple goals. They produced a video that advertises the „no“ case. The agreement allows students to access each school with a minimum average of 2.0 degrees (AMP) and 45 to 50 transferable credit hours, depending on the school. Similarly, students who complete their associate degree at the university of the partner community are guaranteed admission. In an NTEU-Fightback-UWA leaflet, it was said: The Vice-Chancellor of the UWA and the national directorate of the NTEU „sold the modification of the enterprise agreement to avoid job cuts“, but the provisions of the EAV explicitly authorize „forced dismissals, the protection for casual cases being low and not applying, unless these casual players can demonstrate a „reasonable anticipation“ of the work in progress which is almost impossible in practice.“ The agreements we can facilitate include: each agreement allows UWA and the partner school to have a clearly defined transfer process and better communication with students on the transition from community school to UWA. These include academic advice and scholarships.
Participating schools are Bevill State Community College, Enterprise State Community College, Northwest Shoals Community College and coastal Alabama Community College in the state, as well as in Mississippi, Meridian Community College, East Central Community College and Itawamba Community College. They say the proposed change adds up to a 10% pay cut of up to $247 per 14 days for some employees and a salary cut of up to $6420 per year for professional employees. On June 26, all staff will vote on the proposal to amend the UWA Academic, Professional and General Staff Agreement 2017, which covers payment and conditions. As students drive their transfer, academic guidance will be provided by both schools, a step that will help students follow a targeted path in their studies with academic and professional goals. Higher education workers, forced to shoulder higher workloads and survive the casual work environment, are now being asked to save some of Australia`s wealthiest institutions, according to the leaflet.
