15 June 2016 – Email announcing the ballot result

Dear Colleagues

I am very pleased to let you know that the ballot for the TAFE Commission of NSW Teachers in TAFE Children's Centres Enterprise Agreement 2016 was successfully supported by the majority of employees.

The results were:

  • 95% voted yes
  • 5% voted no
  • 84% of employees participated in the vote.

This result is a good for staff and TAFE NSW.

I want to thank everyone for getting involved, asking questions and providing valuable feedback about the proposal throughout the bargaining process. This result also reflects your commitment to TAFE NSW and our future.

I also wish to acknowledge the dedication and commitment of the TAFE NSW Enterprise Bargaining Team and the many Institute teams who supported TAFE NSW's commitment to a constructive and transparent bargaining process.

What's next?

The Enterprise Agreement will now be lodged with the Fair Work Commission for approval. Once the agreement is approved, the first 2.5% salary increase will be payable from 17 June 2016.

Thank you again for your support.


Jon Black
