The IEU has been working around the clock to keep our members informed of all the latest developments in the rapidly shifting COVID-19 landscape. In addition to providing breaking news, regular updates and timely advice on our Facebook and Twitter pages we have created a COVID-19 resource and advice hub on our website.
There you can find sector specific advice (early childhood, primary, secondary, support staff, colleges), news releases, ACTU and Unions NSW factsheets, video updates, links to global health advice, mental health resources, FAQ and advice documents developed specifically by the IEU for members, and other COVID-19 related information.
Don’t miss the “Working from home FAQs” document for teachers and support staff, of which you can find a berief excerpt in this edition of Newsmonth.
We have also created a list of “Suggested alternative duties for non teaching staff” that might be allocated to teacher aides, specialist teachers, and other support staff to ensure continuity of employment during the online/remote working period.
These are suggestions only, and there may well be other contextual needs for your school.
We are constantly updating this hub with the latest information, so be sure to check in with us regularly. If you have specific concerns or require advice about your work situation, we encourage you to contact your union organiser via phone or email.
Find the hub by clicking the yellow button on the front page of our website, or go directly to ieu.asn.au/covid-19-advice-and-information
