Federation urges members to vote YES in the TAFE Commission of NSW TAFE Managers Enterprise Agreement 2017 ballot.
The ballot opened at 12.01am on Friday 28th July and will close 11.59pm on Monday 31st July. The outcome of this ballot will determine TAFE Managers' working conditions for the next two years. Members do not have to be at TAFE to vote; members can vote on the internet or by telephone.
The proposed two-year Agreement ensures a 2.5 per cent pay rise in January 2018 and another 2.5 per cent in January 2019 while maintaining all current working conditions. Under the current state wages policy, this is the maximum increase allowable without requiring a loss of working conditions to yield employee-related savings. In the current political climate, Federation recommends TAFE Managers should vote YES in this ballot.
