Trade union training leave

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.

For school administration
When processing TUT leave applications:

  • Ensure staff attending training have selected TUT Leave in HRMIS.
  • Project code 1471 will be generated within the payment system.
