As we enter into negotiations this year one key element is to have a bargaining committee of co-workers who will attend negotiations and collectively represent union members.
The bargaining committee will consistently be supported by the IEU Organiser and also by an IEU Industrial officer whenever that is helpful (e.g. drafting clauses, providing comparative data with other schools)
A strong bargaining committee is representative of all staff groups and job classifications at the workplace. Bargaining committee members have to be members of the union and committed to the overall goals set by their co-workers.
This Enterprise Agreement bargaining process gives all members an opportunity to nominate who they want to represent them on the IEU bargaining committee. You can nominate yourself to be on the IEU bargaining committee and/or another member who is agreeable to that.
I am nominating (please enter the following in the box below):
