Dirty Work

It has come to the attention of the union that members are now being asked to enter into areas within TAFE for ‘dirty or related work’. For example, the union is aware that some TAFE members are being asked to undertake duties involving record-keeping and the archiving of documents, which are:

  • Without sufficient ventilation;
  • In a cramped position;
  • Dirty or offensive;
  • Involved in the preparation of epoxy or something similar;
  • In a confined space; or
  • Near soiled pipe, waste pipes or drain pipes.

If the above applies to you, then you are entitled to be paid extra under Clause 38 of the Enterprise Agreement. If you are not getting paid this allowance but believe that you should be, then please contact the union on 1800 772 679 for more information and assistance.
