The Friends School Enterprise Agreement 2018

Don`t hesitate to call the Union if you have any questions about the implementation of the new MEA in your school. Members who work for the accreditation of BOSTES/NESA Proficent Teacher need the support and support of their school. If a school is concerned that a teacher may not meet the teacher accreditation deadline, the school is required to communicate to the teacher certain areas where more work is needed at the time of the last semester of the teacher`s second year of teaching.

The UNION considers that the increase in wages is a good result for members in the current economic context of low inflation. BACKPAY The 2.3% pay increase begins at the beginning of the first pay period after February 1, 2017. The teachers` MEA expressly provides, in Article 5, point (d), on S9, that the difference between the 2017 mea rate and the rate actually received by the teacher during this period (i.e. the additional payment) must be paid as soon as possible after the start of the new MEA. PERSONAL/CARER`S LEAVE The new rules on personal/facilitator leave for teachers will begin in early 2017, with a single credit of 15 days off and a gradual delimitation of 15 days per year, with no limit (see paragraphs 12.1 b) and c) of the MEA for transitional arrangements).

A special one-day leave per year will now also be available to fulfill a planned family obligation where the time is beyond the teacher`s control. New, more flexible rules apply to disease detection – no evidence is required for the first three days of personal/nurse leave in a calendar year. In the event of absence after the first three days, a teacher may not be required, in the event of bodily harm or illness, to present a medical certificate for the absence of two consecutive days or more; however, in the event of absence due to personal emergency or domestic violence, the teacher must present evidence for each day of absence. SENIOR TEACHER 1 Enterprise Agreements 2018 replace the 2014 agreements. Our enterprise agreements establish advisory committees in which elected staff representatives work with leaders on specific issues. The current enterprise agreements were approved by the Fair Work Commission in March 2019. The Union thanks the members for their patience in waiting for the approval of the agreements. The Independent Schools NSW (Teachers) Multi-Enterprise Agreement 2017 was approved by the Fair Work Commission on 23 March 2017 and starts on 30 March 2017.

Members are reminded that during Stage 13, teachers can apply for access to Senior Teacher 1, with a salary of approximately $4,000 above Stage 13. This process should not be binding – see the provisions of the MEA (section 6.6) and contact the Union if you would like more information on the application procedure and criteria. SOUTIEN FOR THE TEACHER TRAINING PROFICIENT TEACHER ACCREDITATION School will now advise teachers on professional development dates, training and/or meetings, the previous year before the end of the 3rd semester. Implementation of this provision will allow members to prepare for safety and security with respect to personal obligations and plans, as they know that they cannot be changed by the school due to the limited disclosure of their obligations.
