“We welcome the fact that the EU executive voted unanimously to support the government`s revised offer to vote for its members,” Lucas said. When schools negotiate their own company agreements, the themes are of course in 4 categories. The AEU will hold a vote by its members by the end of next week. If the offer is supported, the next step will be to hold a vote of the state`s 28,000 teachers, school heads and auxiliaries in the first week of the first half of 2020. If staff vote in favor of the offer, the agreement is formalized. Vacations in cases of domestic and domestic violence have been recognized in national employment standards (as well as in modern awards). Any agreement that speaks only of a favorable counterpart now falls under the bar. The ACTU (and IEU) fees are valid for 10 days paid and either 5 or 10 paid days are the usual result of the EA. The advance for 10 continues. The offer – which covers the period 2018-19-2022-23 – supports the state`s drive to be the country`s education leader through the creation and commitment of an experienced teaching staff. Teachers with uncoded workloads are subject to work intensification with little leeway to master them, as there are no limits to what can be asked of them. Even in Catholic and Lutheran conventions, where the workload is codified in detail, not everything that is required of a teacher can be attributed to a codified “bucket.” Since the awards and agreements speak of attendance days and teaching loads, it is important that at least these basic figures are included in the local agreement.
These figures are known. Now it`s time to write them down in agreements. The minimum requirements in our schools are set out in the Catholic Education SA Enterprise Agreement 2017. Instrumental music teachers and sports coaches also tend to get a raw chord because they are invisible at the time ea. As a union, it is our duty to take care of those who are not there to speak for themselves. All too often, we hear that we have not even codified at a fundamental level, what it takes to earn the salary is equivalent to signing a blank cheque. Your share of the business is not limited, but the employer`s part is. It is comparable to the selection of the car you want to buy and the dealer who has the amount filled out on your signed blank check. A common employer tactic is to test the determination of negotiators by saying that improving family-friendly conditions has a cost and that the costs arise from the wage increase. Yes, there are costs, but these costs are activity costs and are expensive to be a responsible employer. Employees should not have to pay for their own terms. Tuition fee reductions for staff children are not unusual in AIS schools, but they are usually specific to the school.
“This is a positive step forward and the government hopes it will result in a reasonable solution to our negotiations on corporate negotiations, which will allow for exceptionally fair and adequate salary increases and will also offer more support and support to classroom teachers. . . .
