”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 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. The government`s initial offer in June of this year included 1.0% of the first 2.35% increase for teachers, which dates back to October 2018. This revised offer brings the amount of the first salary increase to 1.35%, which dates back to October 2018. The government has increased its offer of a ”complexity premium” for schools by $3 million per year, from $12 million to $15 million. Each school receives funding to help teachers cope with their workload with students with complex needs, for example through the recruitment of additional teachers or assistants and the costs of expert assistance. On average, schools receive $29,469 per year (and up to $158,914 per year), with schools deciding on their funding.
In return, there will be greater flexibility in human resource management and some more reasonable rules for the teacher allocation system in rural schools. ”This is a positive step forward and the government hopes this will lead to a reasonable solution to our enterprise negotiations negotiations, which include exceptionally fair and reasonable wage increases, and also provides more support and support to teachers in the classroom. 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. Salary increases of 2.35% per year for teachers and 3.35% for principals and preschoolers, wage increases until May 2022. The offer – which covers the period 2018-19-2022-23 – supports the state`s goal of being the leader in education by creating and hiring specialized teaching staff.

Treasurer Rob Lucas said that the fact that all parties (government, AEU and The Public Service Association) agreed that the next conciliation negotiation before the SA labour tribunal would not continue. The minimum right to our schools is described in the Catholic Education SA Enterprise Agreement 2017. ”The AEU`s request to suspend further hearings before the SA labour tribunal is further indication of the positive progress made by the parties in the negotiations.
