TAFE EB: get ready to have your say
Queensland Teachers' Journal, Vol 127 No number 4, 3 June 2022, page no. 20
The TAFE Queensland Certified Agreement 2019 is approaching its nominal end, with negotiations for a replacement to commence in April 2023.
From the start of Term 3 this year, the QTU’s TAFE Division will be canvasing TAFE members to identify what they would like to see included in the log of claims to be taken to those negotiations.
The TAFE Queensland agreement was significantly expanded during the last bargaining round, with additional categories of employment introduced, such as foundation educator, senior tutor and teacher, educational team leader and the higher education lecturer classifications. Feedback will be sought from members regarding the efficacy of existing conditions and any changes sought.
TAFE Queensland teaching staff should keep an eye out for Union communications and the local branch meetings at which the member consultation will take place.
