IEU Organisers Kate Damo and Tina Smith attended the Early Childhood Australia (ECA) National Conference in Adelaide, hosting an IEU Stand.
The IEU was the only union represented in the exhibition hall which attracted a lot of interested teachers from NSW/ACT.
More than 500 of the conference attendees were from NSW. Some members stopped by for a chat and more information on the recent NSW Department of Education pay increases for teachers.
They also sought more information on supported bargaining and what it means for early childhood teachers. Our members in NSW preschools are interested in being a part of a supported bargaining agreement for teachers in preschools.
