Support Staff

AEU support staff members and the AEU are making a real difference to education outcomes, while improving working conditions across the state.

Congratulations and thanks to everyone who voted for the new PSUWA and Health Care Procedures Allowance Agreements in the recent member ballot.

Here’s the results:

TURNOUT: 60% of eligible members voted.
RESULT: 98% voted YES to accept the proposed Agreements.

We will take the Agreements to the Tasmanian Industrial Commission for registration as soon as possible, there’s a bit of paperwork to get sorted and the other unions who are parties to the Agreements need to go through their processes before it can be registered. We’re not waiting though, we have already started working on implementation for 2020 with our first Support Staff Reps Training in Hobart yesterday and more to come around the state this week.

Your first 2.3% pay rise is due later this month, and we will work with the Department to have it delivered as soon as possible. If it cannot be done before the end of the year, rest assured it will be back dated.

It’s great to see members participating and strongly supporting the increased allowances, pay rises, paid public holidays, various improvements to conditions and increases in paid maternity/partner leave to name just a few highlights.
