The highlights of the 2016 negotiations the last time the agreement was reached, as found by the AEU, included an annual salary increase of 3 per cent, 15 days off for co-educators and pay parity with teachers at the higher level of early childhood teachers (representing an additional 13 per cent) and pay parity with teachers at the lower level of early childhood teachers (equivalent to 8 additional per cent).

The VECTEA agreement is an important enterprise agreement that governs the sector sector of the Victorian community. The ACT Public Sector Education and Training Directorate (Teaching Staff) Enterprise Agreement is the agreement under which teachers and school psychologists work. It is a formal, legally enforceable agreement that we regularly enter into with the ACT government and defines wages, allowances, leave, workload and much more. “We welcome the fact that the AEU executive voted unanimously in favour of the government`s approval of its members` revised offer to vote,” Lucas said. The current agreement for school assistants came into force on April 3, 2019. Our school assistants work as part of the ACT Public Sector Administrative and Related Classifications Enterprise Agreement. It is a formal, legally enforceable agreement that we regularly enter into with the ACT government and defines wages, allowances, leave, workload and much more.
The AEU will hold a vote of its members by the end of next week. If the offer is supported, the next step will be to hold a vote on all 28,000 teachers, headteachers and state leaders in the first week of the first half of 2020. If employees vote in favour of the offer, the agreement will be formalized. ELAA believes that the proposed VECTEA offers a balanced approach for teachers, educators and early childhood providers, according to a statement from the association, which states that the proposed agreement is now reached by the government with regard to adequate funding. The ability of employers to address underperformance issues has been successfully negotiated by the ELAA, which ensures that employers can extend the trial period for workers to six months under the proposed agreement, which also allows the employer to formally manage benefit issues. The agreement was adopted with 87.5% yes in the choice of workers. The union says the ministry`s instructions are aimed at implementing a new performance and development process, in violation of clause 13, paragraph 3, of the agreement. For the first time in a generation, we have a proposal for an agreement that puts in place important measures for workload and contracts. In recent discussions, the ELAA stated that the proposed agreement “focuses on quality outcomes for the early childhood sector, improving the salaries and conditions of teachers and educators and giving employers greater capacity to manage their workforce.” Marshall`s Liberal government welcomed a decision by the Board of Directors of the Australian Education Union to unanimously approve the government`s offer of an agreement between the companies, which must be part of teachers, principals and preschool principals for their members` vote, which I hope will settle the long-running wage dispute.
Workplace Express – AEU sues the Victorian government for wage developments (PDF) The president of the Victorian subsidiary Meredith Peace said the union “did not accept that up to 40% of school staff do not meet the standards” and accused the government of “undermining the teaching profession” by making changes without consulting them.
