No.8,16 July 2013
Members overwhelmingly reject DETE EB Offer – QTU seeks intervention of Industrial Relations Commission
The QTU conducted a ballot of its TAFE members during the week of 8-12 July.
Members were asked to vote on the following questions:
- Are you in favour of accepting the Department of Education, Training and Employment proposed Certified Agreement for TAFE Educational Staff?
- Do you support incorporation of educational and non-educational TAFE staff in one Certified Agreement?
Over 60 per cent of members responded to the ballot. On question one, 99 per cent of members voted “no”; on question two, 98 per cent of members voted “no”.
On the basis of this outcome and the fact that, on balance, the new offer incorporating educational and administrative TAFE employees is actually worse for our members, the QTU has decided to seek the intervention of the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission under section 148 of the Industrial Relations Act. The QTU has notified DETE that it will not be participating in EB negotiations until these negotiations take place under the supervision of the Industrial Relations Commission.
