So far, ten formal meetings have been held between federation and TAFE NSW, and regular meetings have continued. Both parties have committed to agreeing as soon as possible to a proposed new enterprise agreement. An important part of the negotiation process is your right to appoint a negotiator to participate in the negotiations on your behalf. There are three ways to be represented during the negotiations: the Victorian TAFE Association A Manual for Best Practice in Employment Relations and OH-S have become ready to provide good practice advice on contemporary human resources, industrial relations and OH-S practices. The latter manual was completely revised and updated in September 2019. Prior to the start of negotiations, the Federation conducted a survey of all TAFE members covered by the agreement to set their priorities for the new EA. This poll showed by an overwhelming majority that teachers wanted to focus on a 2.5% increase in annual salary without loss of conditions. Although the agreement`s nominal expiration date is October 29, 2019, the agreement remains in place until it is replaced. We will begin negotiations on a new agreement in early 2019.
