The 2016 AEU Leaders’ Convention will be held at the Tamar Valley Resort in Launceston on Thursday and Friday, May 5 & 6, so if you’re a Rep, or co-Rep, make sure you Save the Dates.

The Convention is for all workplace Reps in all sectors. The theme this year is the powerful art of storytelling.

If you’re a new Teacher or Support Staff Rep in DoE, you may not be aware that you are entitled to up to five days’ paid relief for union training, of which the Convention forms part. Paid relief does not apply to TasTAFE Reps.

As part of the Convention, there will be the annual Workplace Leaders’ Awards so if you know of an outstanding Rep, nominate them for a gong! Nomination forms will be available on our website soon…
