Time to act

IEU members in Catholic systemic schools across NSW and the ACT will in coming days receive Notices of Employee Representational Rights. These notices signal the formal commencement of bargaining.

IEU reps and members are to be commended for engaging in a campaign to achieve pay rises, provide additional time for professional duties, secure more permanent positions for both teachers and support staff, and address work intensification. For a copy of the claim, see the IEU website.

The Union will be providing an update after the initial meeting with the Catholic Commission for Employment Relations.
