You can ask questions and give feedback on the company`s negotiation process: a number of bargaining issues have been identified and addressed, including the level of salary increases, the duration of the proposed agreement, terms of employment and the current experimentation with staff roles. Discussions focused mainly on scoping and then on the clarification of cases, with more detailed negotiations in subsequent rounds. The agreed salary increase of 2.5% will be paid on 23 February 2017. This involves retroactive payments from the first full payment period, after TAFE NSW has entered into an agreement with the NSW Teachers Federation, i.e. on 2 December 2016. As is often the case during negotiations, many issues depended on the adoption of a final package. The union was not able to report to members at all stages because the cases ended because they were graduated by an entire agreement. That`s why it seems to be over quickly. If you would like to appoint a negotiator to represent you (including yourself) during the negotiation process, send an email to email@example.com. The email must contain your full name and electronic signature as well as information about the representative you wish to appoint. You can appoint a trading representative at any time during the negotiation process.
“The directors received a salary increase after the conclusion of a new company agreement for the tafe directors.” The taFE NSW bargaining team and the union discussed the status of the current test roles in the next company agreement. A copy of the approved agreement is available here. Working with our employees as part of the agreement of our next company agreements is a top priority for all of us. These new agreements will help us shape our workforce for the future and build together a successful, competitive and sustainable TAFE NSW. We discussed a number of areas within the agreement in order to move forward and conclude it. I am confident that we can work with the unions to negotiate a positive outcome in the near future. An important part of the business negotiation process is your right to appoint a negotiator to participate in the negotiations on your behalf. There are three ways to be represented during the negotiations: all parties involved in the negotiations will meet again within four weeks and resume negotiations. TAFE NSW will continue to bargain in good faith with the union and the appointed representatives. Once the agreement is concluded, any negotiated salary increase will be paid from that date, after approval by the Fair Work Commission.
In order to ensure that there is no uncertainty about the validity of the NERR or possible delays in pursuing a new agreement, TAFE NSW has decided to terminate the ongoing negotiation process so that a new process can start as soon as possible. If you have any specific questions, go to the website or send an email EBupdate@tafensw.edu.au Accordingly, I inform you that TAFE NSW is using with immediate effect the current negotiation process for a company agreement to replace the TAFE Commission of NSW Teachers and Related Employees Enterprise Agreement 2013. The NERR exhibition is an important step in the process of meeting a company agreement. In the event of irregularities in this process, the Fair Work Commission will not approve a company agreement, even if it has been approved by a majority of employees. That would mean an additional delay of several months — a result I want to avoid. TAFE NSW and AEU NSW Teacher Federation have expressed their support for this cooperative approach which will be implemented in the 2015 round of negotiations. If you are a member of the union, you will soon receive a ballot to vote on the proposed labour dispute. Of course, we all strive to minimize the impact on our students and industry partners. We ask you to support us in the coming weeks as we work hard behind the scenes to close the deal. If you have any questions about this process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org….
