    Jerrabomberra Polling Booth

    Election Day 2016

     alice-springs-voters.jpg

    This Federal election, we are asking you to come to the Jerrabomberra polling booth to hand out information about Gonski to voters just before they vote.

    We ask you to RSVP and we will assign you a shift - we will be breaking the day into 3 shifts: morning, midday and afternoon. Once you RSVP, we will call you and you can let us now what shift works best for you.

    This is the most powerful thing we can do: talk to Jerrabomberra voters in the ultra-marginal seat of Eden Monaro about how Gonski needs-based education funding can help everyone.

    Educators get a great reception from other union members as they are considering their vote -- your working lives make you experts who are trusted. 

    This is a great use of your time in an election year -- come have a say in the future of your country. Bring a friend, and if you can't make it, send five!

    2016 National Support Staff Week

    August is the time that we acknowledge the huge contribution that School Assistants make to the school team and encourage them to be more involved in their union.

    Our School Assistant membership has experienced a fast growth within the AEU ACT Branch over the last 2 years. This impressive growth in membership has resulted in School Assistants feeling more comfortable expressing their views and opinions - and there is no doubt that it was a major factor in the significant wins and opportunities we have achieved.

    It is important that School Assistant members continue to make their voices heard and that our sub-branches encourage their involvement and ensure their rights and issues are given due recognition.

    We join other states and territories in recognising all School Assistants around Australia with a National Support Staff Week, 15 - 19 August. Let the AEU recognise your valuable contributions to education.

    We would like our School Assistant members to join us at one of the many events planned in August.

    Organise a special event for your School Assistant members

    During National School Support Week we ask Sub-Branches to highlight the role of that the AEU plays in campaigning for better conditions for our School Assistant members.

Suggestions include a morning tea, lunch, cards, or letters from students and teachers, or drinks and nibbles after work.
