CPSU NSW wins at FWC on temporary conversion dispute

CPSU NSW wins at FWC on temporary conversion dispute

Last month we reported that the CPSU NSW had filed a dispute with the Fair Work Commission (FWC) in response to TAFE NSW’s failure to act on applications we had made for 70-80 temporary staff members eligible to be made permanent employees in accordance with Clause 17 of the TAFE Commission of NSW Enterprise Agreement 2016.

As a result of the Fair Work dispute TAFENSW has been compelled to act.

The dispute was mediated by the FWC, where it was agreed that TAFENSW will progress all applications and transition staff to permanency as quickly as possible.

Of the 81 applications submitted over the past four months, TAFENSW has confirmed that the majority will be converted to permanent employment by mid-September. This will be via a letter confirming the appointment.

It is a significant victory for the union to have TAFENSW recognise the value of its long-term temporary staff and provide them with the job security that they deserve.

CSPU NSW asks all members to pass on this information to your colleagues. If they are long-term temporary staff and union members we would like to assist them to gain permanent employment.
