More than 65% of staff vote against TAFE changes
A PROPOSED restructure of the NSW TAFE system has been rejected by an overwhelming majority of teachers.
The State Government's planned TAFE NSW Enterprise Agreement, which the union claims will give way to the hiring of less qualified staff on lower wages, was put to a vote on Monday.
More than 65% of staff voted against the proposal.
NSW Teachers Federation President Maurie Mulheron, who campaigned for the "no" vote said the union was ready to return to the bargaining table and negotiate a new enterprise agreement which "maintains high quality education and positions and conditions".
