TAFE member update – new government offer
Congratulations and thanks to everyone who voted for the new TasTAFE Teaching Staff Agreement in the recent member ballot.
Here’s the results:
TURNOUT: 80% of eligible members voted.
RESULT: 99% voted YES to accept the proposed Agreement.
We will take the Agreement to the Tasmanian Industrial Commission for registration as soon as possible, there’s a bit of paperwork to get sorted and we’ll start working on implementation for 2020.
The first 2.3% pay rise comes in March next year and it’s great to see members participating and strongly supporting the various improvements to conditions, workload wins, professional development improvements, new teachers starting on a higher band and paid maternity/partner leave increased to name just a few highlights.
It’s all thanks to AEU members that we have a great new Agreement and there’s always more to be done – so please take the chance now to sign-up your colleagues – joining is easy online here.
TAFE and the AEU
The TAFE Division represents teachers, managers and support staff employees of TasTAFE, Trade Training Centres and LINC’s.
The AEU provides advocacy to members on individual issues, advice and representation at Tasmanian Industrial Commission (TIC) and negotiates your wages and conditions for workplace Agreements and Awards.
TAFE Division is just one part of the wider AEU, which is one of the largest union in Tasmania with over 6500 members working across all educational settings and one of the largest unions nationally.
There is a TAFE Organiser and other staff to provide membership advice on a range of issues such as workers’ compensation and retirement. The AEU is the only education union that can negotiate wages and conditions for teachers working in TAFE.
Your AEU is the union for TAFE Division employees. One union one voice.
