Teachers stop work to vote on new award

Students and pupils in Bega Valley public schools will be under minimal supervision this morning as Teachers Federation members attend stop work meetings.

Federation members in public schools will attend stop work broadcast meetings from 9am for up to two hours to hear a report from the Teachers Federation president and vote on a recommendation for a new salaries and conditions award.

Members from the Bega Valley will attend meetings at Eden Fishermen’s Club and Merimbula Golf Club.

NSW Teachers Federation acting media and communications officer Julie Moon confirmed the stop work and asked any parents concerned about supervision arrangements between 9-11am to contact their school.

“The stop work meeting is to let our membership vote on our three-year award agreement with the Department of Education,” she said.

“We are looking at aspects of our salaries and principal reclassification, in addition a new pay scale for teachers employed from 2016.

“In light of the significance of these matters, it’s important these meetings are well attended.”
