Call for far reaching TasTAFE investigation
The AEU has written to the Premier calling on him to conduct an independent root-and-branch investigation of TasTAFE management, policies and practices to restore confidence in the organisation.
The call comes in the wake of a damning Integrity Commission Report that found nepotism was rife in the organisation.
About the TAFE Sector
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.
