School officers make a difference

8 June, 2022

IEU Chapters have marked School Officer Day (Wednesday, 8 June) with celebrations recognising the difference school officers and services staff members make to our schools and to education.

IEU-QNT Branch Secretary Terry Burke said school officers had been an essential part of our union for over thirty years.

“We’ve achieved significant wins to working conditions and wages since establishing the very first School Officer Award in the 1990s,” Mr Burke said.

“We’re still fighting for better conditions and recognition today through our Careers You Can Count On campaign, which aims to enshrine an updated set of classification scales and associated remuneration to better reflect contemporary school officer roles.
