Tafe teachers could strike over hours

TAFE campuses across the New South Wales north coast, including the Tweed, are considering industrial action against the State Government over a pay rise dispute.

The New South Wales Teachers Federation said its members have rejected the Department of Education and Training's proposal to increase teaching hours and cause job losses in exchange for already agreed pay rises of 12.5 per cent.

The New South Wales Teachers Federation held a meeting with several TAFE teachers from the north coast at Wollongbar TAFE this week to consider taking industrial action.

TAFE TA president Rob Long said a demand for an extra 57 hours teaching per year for head teachers, permanent and temporary teachers, was insulting.

“We won't tolerate this,” he said.
