Goodstart Early Learning advised the Union in January that they will increase teachers’ salaries by 4.2% in February and 2.4% for other staff even though the enterprise agreement doesn’t run out until April.
Goodstart has done this in recognition of the importance they place on their staff and in particular teachers. It is expected that negotiations for a new Goodstart agreement will take place in the first half of this year. Before negotiations commence, the IEU will be visiting Goodstart centres in NSW and the ACT to discuss what teachers and teacher directors would like to see in the new agreement.
The Goodstart agreement covers all of their centres throughout Australia.
