Bulletin 18 - ballot open – have your say - issued 16 September 2022

The ballot for the proposed NTPS non-contract principals, teachers and assistant teachers’ 2021-2024 enterprise agreement has now opened.

It is important that you have your say by voting on the proposed agreement.

Your vote needs to be received prior to the ballot closing at 2pm on Friday 23 September 2022.

How to vote

You should have received an email from the Northern Territory Electoral Commission (NTEC) with instructions on how to vote electronically using the NTEC ‘Netvote’ system.

If you haven’t received an email or need assistance, contact the NT Electoral Commission by emailing netvote.NTEC@nt.gov.au or by calling 08 8999 7641.


The NTEC is an independent authority who manages the ballot process and counting of the votes.

The NTEC ballot process ensures that all eligible employees’ personal details remain confidential, and that voting preferences cannot be identified.

I will advise eligible employees of the ballot result via a bulletin and a notice on the OCPE webpage for the teachers and assistant teachers' enterprise agreement negotiations.

Make your vote count

Every vote is important and can make a difference, and I encourage you to take part in this ballot by casting your vote.

If the majority of eligible employees who vote, vote yes and the Fair Work Commission approves the agreement, the current agreement will be replaced.

I am offering $6,000 in lump sum payments (to assist with immediate cost of living pressures).

More information

Links to the proposed agreement, explanatory notes and relevant documents referenced in the proposed agreement are available in bulletin 16, and hard copies are available around the workplace.

For further information on the proposed agreement, explanatory notes, or the ballot process, contact Damien MacRae at OCPE by calling 08 8999 4183.

All bulletins and information sheets on the progress of bargaining and proposals for the new agreement can be accessed on the OCPE website for the teachers and assistant teachers' enterprise agreement negotiations.
