This year we are again bargaining with Helena College.

Now more than ever teachers and support staff need to be collectively involved in the campaign to secure improved salaries and conditions.

The first step to being involved is having your say about which employment matters will be the subject of negotiation and bargaining.

Non-members are invited to join, add to the collective strength and have direct input by filling in this survey after completing the membership form.

All members should complete this survey and non-members are invited to join the union online by clicking on the link Join Now.
