31 January 2017 – Enterprise Agreement approved

Dear team

I am pleased to let you know the TAFE Commission of NSW Teachers and Related Employees Enterprise Agreement 2016 (AG2016/7607) has been approved by the Fair Work Commission. The new Enterprise Agreement will 'operate' from 3 February 2017.

This is great news and I hope the pay increase will allow you to start 2017 with a focus on teaching our students. This result also helps the organisation to move forward with the many exciting One TAFE NSW initiatives.

A copy of the approved agreement is available here.

What's next?

The agreed 2.5% pay increase will be paid on 23 February 2017. This will include retrospective payments from the first full pay period after TAFE NSW reached agreement with the NSW Teachers Federation, i.e. 2 December 2016.

If you have any questions, please speak to your local People and Safety team.

Many thanks and please stay safe,

Jon Black
MANAGING DIRECTOR, TAFE NSW
