Aeu Teacher Agreement
It includes headteachers, assistant principals, teachers and teaching assistants employed by the Ministry of Education (DET). 2020 is the year in which we will begin negotiations for a new agreement establishing your remuneration and terms. The ability of employers to address underperformance issues has been successfully negotiated by the ELAA, which ensures that employers can extend the trial period for workers to six months under the proposed agreement, which also allows the employer to formally manage benefit issues. The agreement was adopted with 87.5% yes in the choice of workers. The government has increased its offer of a “complexity premium” for schools by $3 million per year, from $12 million to $15 million. Each school receives funding to help teachers cope with their workload with students with complex needs, for example through the recruitment of additional teachers or assistants and the costs of expert assistance. On average, schools receive $29,469 per year (and up to $158,914 per year), with schools deciding on their funding. The government`s initial offer in June of this year included 1.0% of the first 2.35% increase for teachers, which dates back to October 2018. This revised offer brings the amount of the first salary increase to 1.35%, which dates back to October 2018. “We welcome the fact that the AEU executive voted unanimously in favour of the government`s approval of its members` revised offer to vote,” Lucas said. Our school assistants work as part of the ACT Public Sector Administrative and Related Classifications Enterprise Agreement. It is a formal, legally enforceable agreement that we regularly enter into with the ACT government and defines wages, allowances, leave, workload and much more.
In return, there will be greater flexibility in human resource management and some more reasonable rules for the teacher allocation system in rural schools. The AEU will hold a vote of its members by the end of next week. If the offer is supported, the next step will be to hold a vote on all 28,000 teachers, headteachers and state leaders in the first week of the first half of 2020. If employees vote in favour of the offer, the agreement will be formalized.
