Dear Union Member,
Information on the outcome of the November 2011 State Council will be in schools shortly.
Key note speaker Trevor Cobbold re-emphasised the absolute need for all supporters of public schools to step up now and let the Gillard Government know that a new and fair model of federal schools funding must be delivered from the Gonski Review. I acknowledge and thank all 2011 State Council delegates for their commitment through 2011.

FIXED TERM EMPLOYEES
The Union is in dispute with the DoE re a new policy/practice to pay out entitlements at the end of a contract. This matter is in the WAIRC. Last week the DoE advised it would not commence this practice for fixed term employees who have had a contract for the year. See Ed-e-mail 18/11/11.
The SSTUWA advises its members accordingly:
If schools wish to ‘trade off’ their school development days they are only required to trade off the student contact time per day which is; 320 minutes for a secondary school and 310 minutes for primary schools. This is consistent with clause 13 in the Teachers Award 1993.
Therefore if a school is trading off two school development days they should be trading off,
320 minutes x 2 = 640 minutes for secondary
310 minutes x 2 = 620 minutes for primary.
Schools have been operating trade off in this manner since 1996. Breaks have never been included in this trade off time.
OFFICE OF PUBLIC SECTOR COMMISSIONER: ANNUAL AGENCY SURVEY 2011
Members are encouraged to take up the invitation to contribute to this survey. Details and links were provided in the Ed-e-mail 18/11/11. It closes 1 December 2011.
AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM & IMPLEMENTATION SUPPORT
The Minister/ Barnett Government appear to be going to determine the extent of resources needed to implement the Australian Curriculum via survey to teachers in all sectors. We will be addressing this ‘simplistic approach’, BUT URGE ALL MEMBERS TO CONTRIBUTE YOUR VIEWS and ensure a full picture of needs is reflected in the survey. [complete by 15/12/11].
