June Council endorsed the call by Unions NSW for members to attend the 1 July Sky Channel meetings.
The Federation authorises minimum supervision arrangements in schools during this stopwork action. The Federation encourages all casual school teachers and part-time casual TAFE teachers to attend these Sky Channel meetings.
You are reminded that proposed Federal Government Industrial Relations changes will potentially expose Public Education teachers to:
- Individual contracts
- No incremental pay scales
- Performance pay and/or payment by "results"
- The end of transfer rights
- The length of the teaching day, the number of teaching hours and other working conditions determined by individual "negotiation".
- Unfair dismissal
A list of the venues for the Sky Channel will be faxed to all worksites in the near future.
