AEU Statement

Australian Education Union Tasmanian Branch

AEU Tasmania’s Branch Executive, comprising serving teachers and support staff, met today to discuss the Government’s new offer for teachers.

Roz Madsen, State Manager said:

“Elected teacher and support staff Executive members call on the government to negotiate on the details over the summer so a much-improved offer could be put to members early in 2019.”

“There are a number of concerns with the offer such as no caps on class sizes, no movement on 2% — which relegates Tasmania’s experienced teachers to lowest paid — and significant lack of detail in the offer.”

“The Government made a take-it-or-leave-it offer without giving teachers at the table the opportunity to negotiate changes or receive further clarification or details and that’s what we need to happen now, as a matter of urgency.”
