6 November 2015 – EMAIL ABOUT EB UPDATE 3

Dear Colleagues

I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on enterprise bargaining for the TAFE Commission of NSW Teachers in TAFE Children's Centres Enterprise Agreement 2015.

Since the meeting on 7 August, the TAFE NSW bargaining team and the union have been corresponding about the proposal. The union has also been consulting with its members covered by the agreement.

TAFE NSW is still committed to its proposal of a 2.5% increase in wages for 2 years from January 2016 if the proposed reforms are agreed.

New FAQs

When the time comes, who can vote?

All employees who are covered by the current agreement can vote for it. You do not need to be a member of a union to be able to vote.

Is TAFE NSW removing the Directors and Teachers in charge allowances?

No. TAFE NSW is proposing to keep this allowance at the current level.

What will happen next?

TAFE NSW is continuing to correspond with the unions on several elements of the proposal.
