Modern Awards

In 2009, two new Awards were made by the full bench of the Fair Work Commission – a Teachers Award and a General Staff Award.

These Awards apply to employees who are not covered by an Enterprise Modern award, an enterprise agreement (e.g. the Victorian Catholic Education Multi Enterprise Agreement 2013) (VCEMEA), or who are in an occupation covered by the exceptions provisions, e.g. Religious, Principals, Deputy Principals, etc.

In Victoria, Catholic Education is covered by the VCEMEA  and therefore will not be affected to a great degree by the two Awards. Two areas not covered by the VCEMEA are Nurses and Boarding School Staff.
