Staff are reminded that due to the pay date change, the next staff pay will be paid on Wednesday 12 November 2014. During this one-off change, there will be three weeks between pays rather than the normal fortnight. For staff entitled to annual leave loading, this will be paid early on Wednesday 5 November 2014.
The ACU Staff Enterprise Agreement 2013-2017 includes a provision to change the fortnightly pay cycle. As staff should be aware, the change to the pay cycle is being implemented in November 2014.
The specific arrangements for changing the pay date were announced by the Chief Operating Officer, Dr Stephen Weller in August 2014. The arrangements include measures to support staff to meet their financial obligations.
One of the support measures is the early payment of annual leave loading which, for those staff entitled to it, will be paid on Wednesday 5 November 2014 rather than in December as normally occurs.
In addition, if you lodged an application for support via cash out of leave or a loan - and it was approved - payment will be made on Wednesday 5 November 2014.
