Dear all,

Unions NSW Seminar Series

Unions NSW is pleased to announce our first two seminars of the year. The purpose of the seminar series in 2018 is to share knowledge and experience from within the union movement. Everyone is welcome to attend, and we would like to encourage as broad an audience as possible.

 

Seminar 1 –Equal Pay

Our first seminar will look at the campaign for equal pay that United Voice are running. Natalie Dabarera, Industrial Officer, will speak about the recent decision of the Full Bench of the Fair Work Commission in Application by United Voice and the Australian Education Union [2018] FWCFB 177, where the application for an equal remuneration order for early childhood educators was dismissed. Natalie will explore the decision, how it has changed the law regarding equal remuneration orders, and the industrial strategy going forward. Gabe Kavanagh (Big Steps Strategy Coordinator) will speak about the Big Steps campaign, including key milestones in the campaign and strategy going forward.
