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 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.   


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.



The module will provide elected officers and general members with a sound understanding of:

  • The key changes to the 2019 Agreement, Award and the Exchange of Letters.
  • Employee rights and responsibilities. 
  • Ways to encourage members to access and refer to the 2019 Agreement and Award.
  • The 2019 SSTUWA Log of Claims and how to begin to prepare for the 2021 Log of Claims.

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).

To comply with TUT leave requirements applicants must:

  • Submit applications to DoE/principal four weeks prior to the event.
  • Provide DoE/principal with a printed copy of the course program attached to this form.
  • Be nominated by the SSTUWA. See “nominated audience” on the attached course program.

The school will not be charged for the salary of the person attending trade union training - this is covered by the DoE.  However, if a relief teacher is required, this is funded through the school's one line budget.
