COVID-19: letter to TAFE NSW

Covid update – March 2020 (PDF version)

The CPSU NSW wrote to the TAFE NSW Managing Director on 17 March 2020 to begin a dialogue with the organisation on its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The union sought to be consulted on what contingency plans are being developed to support staff effected by COVID-19. In particular, provisions relating to how staff, including casuals, will be paid if:

  • They are excluded from workplace/placed in quarantine
  • Who have caring responsibilities or who have transport disruptions
  • The workplace is closed
  • If they exhaust sick leave because of COVID 19
