Support Staff Week 2019
This Year ESP Day replaces National Support Staff Week as our annual celebration of support staff.
AEU Tasmania joins AEU branches around Australia and Education International (EI), the voice of teachers and support staff (ESP’s) across the globe, in marking ESP Day on 16 May 2019. The day’s celebrations will recognise the extraordinary contribution support staff make to our schools and our union.
Schools across the country will celebrate the contribution that support staff (ESP’s) made to their school team and the significant union wins over the last 12 months.
It is important that support staff (ESP’s) members are recognised all year round and sub-branches encourage their involvement and ensure their rights and issues are given due recognition.
The AEU encourages sub-branches to elect a support staff rep to the sub branch executive. Having a support staff rep means there is a strong clear support staff voice in AEU sub-branches.
