About the course

The SSTUWA, pleased to offer this online learning opportunity to Union Representatives, Deputy Representatives and general members. This online event does not replace the current face-to-face, full-day event -Know Your Rights The New 2019 Agreement but will provide members with the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of the key changes to the 2019 General Agreement and Award.   The module will support regional and remote area members to:

  • Identify and explore key changes to the 2019 Agreement, the Award and the Exchange of Letters.
  • Discover and share ways to encourage members to access and refer to the new 2019 Agreement and Award. 
  • Explore the 2019 SSTUWA Log of Claims and explore how to begin to prepare for the 2021 Log of Claims.


The event will be 90 minutes  in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to 90 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.

Trade union training leave - Schools

Members in schools and TAFE colleges are eligible for five days of paid leave per year to attend trade union training (TUT).

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