TAFE teachers and related employees have voted to accept a new enterprise agreement, to expire in a year.
After approval by the Fair Work Commission the new enterprise agreement (EA) will provide:
- a 2.04 per cent increase in salary and allowances (back-paid from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2021)
- a duration of only 12 months with a nominal expiry date of 30 June, 2022
- preservation of all existing working conditions.

A 0.5 per cent increase in the superannuation guarantee charge (employer contribution) from 9.5 per cent to 10 per cent was effective from 1 July, 2021, as mandated by federal legislation.
Members are to be congratulated for defending their working conditions in this new EA, however members’ attention should now turn to the future. The NSW Government is to be condemned for its opportunism in using the COVID pandemic to again deny NSW TAFE teachers of a fair and just salary increase.
This new EA’s nominal expiry date of 30 June next year is only 10 months away. Now is the time to start the campaign for salary justice in EA 2022 and justice is rarely achieved without considerable effort.
In the coming months in the lead up to the start of bargaining, Federation will be holding branch meetings and conducting Trade Union Training events in preparation for the task ahead.
Please keep an eye out for notification of these events. Members should encourage non-members to join their union whenever the opportunity presents.
