Industrial action at all Victorian TAFEs over the coming weeks

As you may have seen in recent media coverage, the Victorian TAFE Association has been in negotiations with the Australian Education Union to update the Enterprise Agreement that applies to teachers in the TAFE sector.

During these negotiations, members of the Australian Education Union (AEU) voted in favour of taking industrial action. As a result, all Victorian TAFE teachers who are also AEU members are permitted to engage in protected industrial action.

We have been advised that industrial action will commence at Box Hill Institute commencing from 6am Monday 22 April 2024.

Unfortunately, this industrial action may impact the delivery of some classes, and action may include things like wearing insignia, slogans and/or other material concerning the AEU or delayed responses from teachers.

We understand this may be frustrating, and would like to reassure you that we will do our best to reduce the impact to your learning.

Please rest assured that we remain committed to the education, training and well-being of all our students. If you require any additional support services during this time, please reach out to our Student Life team to see how they can help.
