About the course

The SSTUWA is pleased to offer this online learning opportunity to Union Representatives, Deputy Representatives and nominated general members. This online event does not replace the current face-to-face, full-day events - Know Your  Rights: The 2019 Agreement but will provide members with the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of the 2019 General Agreement and Award.  This is also an online opportunity to explore the current 2021 Log of Claims.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be 120 minutes in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by Cherry Bogunovich. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with Cherry online. Completing this course will contribute to 120 minutes of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.

Prior to the live event, SSTUWA will email you detailed instructions about how to access the online training space via ZOOM.


Elected officers and general members will have an opportunity to:

  • Develop their knowledge of key clauses in the 2019 General Agreement and Award.
  • Navigate the Red Book 2019 General Agreement, Award and Exchange of Letters. 
  • Develop an understanding of their rights and responsibilities.

  • Provide DoE/principal with a printed copy of the course program attached to this form.
