Since March 2019, QTU, Together and TAFE Queensland have been negotiating such an agreement to replace the current TAFE Educators Certified Agreement 2016. During the weeks when two-thirds of QTU TAFE members voted to accept TAFE Queensland`s offer, I led your QTU team as we continue to negotiate and process clauses. We believe that the amendments relating to references to legislation, cross-references to clauses, syntax and grammar, etc., have finally been resolved. We also ensured that all parties to the agreement had the same understanding of the importance and intent of the new clauses. I recognize the contribution of TAFE Queensland CEO Mary Campbell in this extensive process We now have a final and agreed agreement. In numbers, this is the highlight: every two years, members of the QTU TAFE division have the opportunity to negotiate wages and working conditions under a new collective agreement.

On Friday, January 31, 2020, during the negotiations, the QTU focused on the request made by the members of QTU TAFE in full consultation: this document provides an overview of the details of the revised offer and informs the decision of the members of QTU TAFE to approve the revised offer as part of the QTU voting process.
