24 October 2017 - Enterprise Agreement Approved

Dear Colleagues

I am pleased to advise you that the TAFE Commission of NSW TAFE Managers Enterprise Agreement 2017 (AG2017/3332, [2017] FWCA 5482) has been approved by the Fair Work Commission.

You can find a link to all of our Enterprise Agreements here. The new TAFE Managers EA should be online over the coming days.

As you may be aware, the Agreement was signed by TAFE and employee representatives and submitted for approval to the FWC on 4 August 2017.  We have been waiting on the Fair Work Commission’s approval since that date.

What does this mean for you?

If you are employed under the terms of the TAFE Managers Enterprise Agreement, you will receive a pay increase of 2.5% from 12 January 2018, and a further 2.5% from 11 January 2019.

Although the nominal expiry date for the Agreement is 29 October 2019, the Agreement continues until replaced. We will commence negotiations for a new agreement early in 2019.

If you have any questions about the new Agreement, please speak to your local People and Safety Business Partner.
