Bulletin 7 - Ballot postponed - issued 30 November 2021

As previously advised, I had asked parties to provide me with feedback on the improved offer to settle the Teachers and Assistant Teachers’ enterprise agreement negotiations. The AEU NT rejected the offer.

I am disappointed with this response because I believed that conducting a ballot for the new Agreement would be the right approach in all circumstances. A successful ballot, would have allowed employees to receive the 3 days Christmas closedown provisions this year, and the first $4,000 lump sum payment in January 2022.

In considering the union’s position and the time of year, I have decided to postpone the ballot until the early part of 2022. This will enable employees to focus on the end of the school year and the end-of-year school vacation.

Have your say – your feedback is important

Should you wish to express a view on the proposals or make a suggestion, you can provide your feedback to me by emailing enquiries.ocpe@nt.gov.au.
