TAFE teachers begin protected industrial action

TAFE teachers in NSW have voted in favour of industrial action, during a Protected Action Ballot.

According to the NSW Teacher’s Federation, TAFE teachers are outraged by the state government’s wage cap of 2.53%.

95% of TAFE members voted in favour of industrial action, and various industrial bans will be taking place.

Federation said that the Perrottet government’s “refusal to engage in meaningful negotiations” has left NSW TAFE teachers little choice other than to move to take action.

In August, 73% of NSW TAFE teachers and educational support employees rejected the 2.53% state government’s salary cap.

The Federation said there is an urgent need to remedy the decline in TAFE teacher salaries and to reverse the proliferation of insecure work and increased casualisation of TAFE teacher positions.
