The Australian Education Union Tasmanian branch strike action is over, with 70 per cent of the membership voting to accept the Government’s latest offer that will see a pay rise between 7.5 per cent to 8.5 per cent over three years.
However, not all members are happy, with relief teachers receiving a 30 per cent pay decrease as a result of the agreement.
This morning, relief teacher Margaret from Youngtown calls in to tell Brian Carlton how the union deal will impact her career. Anthony from Glengarry also calls in to say that teacher’s aides are also getting a bad deal.
