A date for a hearing of the appeal by the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE) to the Industrial Court against the decision of the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC) to refer TAFE Enterprise Bargaining to arbitration is yet to be set. It is likely that the case will not be heard until 2014.

In the meantime, with the exception of some matters altered by government legislation, policy or directive, the provisions of the current Certified Agreement continue to apply.

QTU members should continue to assert their professional and industrial rights. Members can contact the QTU for further information, advice and support.

Two documents that may be of assistance have now been added to the QTU website:
