TAFE TEACHERS VOTE TO TAKE INDUSTRIAL ACTION

The Australian Education Union confirms that teachers at a number of Victorian TAFEs have voted to take protected industrial action from 1 January 2015.

susiemandley's insight:

 

Members from Bendigo Kangan, the Gordon and William Angliss will join NMIT (Melbourne Polytechnic) members in taking action.

AEU Victorian Branch President, Meredith Peace said TAFE staff have been some of the worst treated workers in Victoria over the last four years, and that after more than 12 months negotiations with employers it was time to take action.

“TAFE members across Victoria have voted to take industrial action in support of their campaign to defend and improve their wages and working conditions.

“We will be notifying the employers that specific work bans and limitations will be in place from January 1, and full details of these will be available in the new year.

“Some of the bans will limit the maximum number of hours of teaching per week, including a ban on any excess teaching and other work to rule limitations, and stop works.

“In many of these cases, TAFE teachers and staff have been negotiating with their respective employers for over 12 months, and have not had a pay increase in more than two years.

“Due to the devastating funding cuts by the Previous Napthine Government, employers have been increasing the workload of remaining staff to cover the gaps left by hundreds of staff who were made redundant.

“TAFE teachers have done an extraordinary job over the last four years holding the public TAFE system together despite extraordinary and relentless attempts to destroy and dismantle it by the previous government.

“The AEU supports the commitments made by the new Andrews’ Government to provide an immediate rescue fund and review the funding model in TAFE. We believe it is essential that the successful rebuilding of TAFE will rely on supporting and maintaining a high quality teaching workforce and urge the new Government to play an active role in achieving this.

"Teachers in TAFEs need recognition and support for the critical work they do supporting students and contributing to the future of Victoria. They are professional teachers who deserve respect and professional wages and conditions," said Ms Peace.
