Tafe Commission Of Nsw Enterprise Agreement
If you have any questions, please visit tafensw.edu.au/enterprise-bargaining or email EnterpriseBargaining2015@tafensw.edu.au brief, you will receive two more emails from me. The first will inform you that TAFE NSW agrees to renegotiate for an enterprise agreement that can be approved by the Fair Work Commission. The second will provide you with a new NERR. If you have any questions about this process, talk to firstname.lastname@example.org. A number of negotiating issues have been identified and addressed, including quantum increases, the duration of the proposed agreement, terms of employment and current experimentation with staff functions. Discussions focused on scoping and further clarification, and more detailed negotiations were expected in subsequent rounds. The TAFE NSW negotiating team and the union discussed the status of current test roles in the next enterprise agreement. Accordingly, I would like to point out that TAFE NSW is terminating, with immediate effect, the ongoing negotiation process for an enterprise agreement to replace the TAFE Commission of NSW Teachers and Related Employees Enterprise Agreement 2013. Prior to the start of negotiations, the Federation conducted a survey of all TAFE members covered by the agreement to set their priorities for the new EA. This poll showed by an overwhelming majority that teachers wanted to focus on a 2.5% increase in annual salary without loss of conditions. TAFE NSW is in the process of entering into negotiations for a new enterprise agreement for TAFE NSW employees, which will be covered by the TAFE Commission of NSW Teachers and Related Employees Enterprise Agreement 2013. The current agreement expires on June 30, 2015.
We discussed a number of areas as part of the agreement to help us move forward and complete it. I am confident that we will be able to work with the unions to negotiate a positive outcome in the near future. To ensure that there is no uncertainty as to the validity of the NERR or any delays in the development of a new agreement, TAFE NSW has decided to end the ongoing negotiation process so that a new process can begin as soon as possible. Tafe NSW and AEU NSW Teachers Federation have spoken out in favour of this cooperative approach, which will be implemented in the 2015 round of negotiations. For more information on enterprise agreements, see the frequently asked questions or in this brochure. To comment or ask your own questions, please visit the site. The neRR edition is an important step in the enterprise agreement process. In the event of irregularities in this process, the Fair Labour Commission will not approve an enterprise agreement, even if it has been adopted by the majority of workers. This would mean an additional delay of several months – a result I would like to avoid. I wanted to inform you that TAFE`s LA NSW negotiating team and I met last Friday, September 30, with the AEU Federation of NSW Teachers to advance enterprise negotiations. TAFE NSW is committed to negotiating in good faith until we have an enterprise agreement that will allow TAFE to compete in a competitive professional training environment and continue to offer quality training. The Australian Education Union NSW Teachers Federation and TAFE NSW began negotiations late last year for a new Tafe Commission of NSW Teachers and Related Employees Enterprise Agreement.
