The Federation, Victoria University, Swinburne University and RMIT TAFEs did not join the other institutes to rewrite the labour agreement. If an enterprise agreement is in effect, the premium does not apply. We have created webinars to support the implementation and declaration of the agreement.

A teacher at the Bendigo Kangan Institute, who requested anonymity, said that after the move, class hours had gone from an average of 21 hours per week, from 21 hours a week to 27 to 30 hours of classes for many teachers, as stipulated in the enterprise agreement. The ministry is entering into negotiations for a new enterprise agreement covering nurses in the Primary and Secondary Program under the 2016 Department of Education and Training. Under the four-year working agreement signed last October, a TAFE teacher`s time in the classroom is limited to 800 hours per year, while class planning and evaluation hours are limited to 400 hours.

On 31 July 2020, the workers concerned received a communication on the rights of workers` representation with regard to the proposed Department of Education and Training (2020). Communication is a formal requirement under the Fair Work Act 2009 and specifies the right of workers to be represented by a bargaining representative in relation to the proposed agreement.
