AN end to a long-run­ning in­dus­trial dis­pute about pay and work con­di­tions at James Cook Univer­sity is fi­nally in sight.

The univer­sity and ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion union rep­re­sen­ta­tives yes­ter­day said they would sup­port putting the new en­ter­prise agree­ment, that cov­ers all JCU staff, to a vote of staff.

The pro­posed agree­ment would pro­vide cer­tainty for staff on terms and con­di­tions over the life of this agree­ment through un­til June 30, 2021.

De­tails of the new agree­ment, which pro­poses an ad­min­is­tra­tive pay in­crease back­dated to Septem­ber 30, will be pro­vided to staff this week.
