There are many. The one members find very attractive is higher salaries. Also, many are drawn by the opportunities offered by Academic Study Leave (ASL). There are two types of ASL. Type One up to and including 20 weeks, and Type Two up to and including 45 weeks.
Paid Institute Leave is another benefit. This applies to the working days between Christmas and New Year when CPIT is closed. In effect, this amounts to 3 extra days leave a year.
AASC’s contract provides for part-time tutors to work up to 80 per cent of a full time tutor’s annual teaching hours. This provision means part-timers can earn more on AASC’s contract. Apart from those material benefits, our members appreciate and support AASC’s commitment to working with CPIT’s management in a cooperative way. The convenience of collective bargaining and the support, if needed, of professional legal representation are added advantages.
