As our readers are aware, on the 11th of July 2022, the UPE announced to the general public, its members as well as the relevant authorities that it had obtained the majority of Learning Support Educators (LSEs) working in State Schools.
The Union proceeded to initiate the verification process that is enshrined in law, which obliges the Department of Employment and Industrial Relations (DIER) to oversee the procedure.
The UPE is going to the Industrial Tribunal to confirm our majority.
The UPE will be the sole recognised Union that will be negotiating and signing the next collective agreement for all LSEs in State Schools.
Claims by third parties are only designed to distract and cover up their failures over the past years.
