Chapter fights back over excessive hours

23 February, 2022

IEU member action has made the difference in overcoming an employer attempt to direct teachers to work beyond their hours of duty.

In this case, an IEU Chapter Rep suspected teachers at a metropolitan Catholic primary school were working in excess of the hours of duty permitted under their collective agreement.

The Rep called a Chapter meeting to discuss the issue where members agreed the current hours of duty seemed to be in excess of the agreement’s 30 hour per week limit.

The Chapter then reached out to their IEU Organiser who provided an hours of duty calculator to assist the Chapter in closely analysing their timetabled hours.
