In summary, the Offer and proposed Agreement includes:
Current Agreement carried over
All existing conditions are maintained in the proposed Agreement which would continue to operate and cover all current employees following the transition to the new TasTAFE business model legislated by the State Government to commence on 1 July 2022.
The offer includes salary increases of 2.35% from the first full pay period commencing on or after (FFPPCOOA) 1 March 2022 and 2.5% from 1 March 2023.
Education Team Leader career path
The offer embeds a career path for teachers to move into management roles through the Educational Team Leader (ETL) classification (see papers linked above for proposed salaries and classifications table).
Online teaching treated hour for hour as direct teaching time
The definition of teaching duties to be amended to include synchronous online teaching as direct teaching time.
This means that if you are teaching online to a class, you will get hour for hour rather than .6 (rounded up) of an hour credited off your teaching load.
Sessional Employee Hours
In Clauses 21.3 and 28.1 Sessional Employees of the TasTAFE Teaching Staff Agreement, replace 7 hours with 8 hours.
This will allow a sessional employee to be employed for a full 8-hour class.
Convert 7 weeks (35 days) of flexible recreation leave to “non-attendance time”
All existing entitlements to what is currently Flexible Leave will continue and you cannot be required to undertake work during this time.
New clauses in the proposed Agreement clarify notice required to request an employee return to work during Non-Attendance Time and effective double-time rates that would apply if an employee agrees to return to work during scheduled Non-Attendance Time.
