Koorie voices in the AEU - a chance to speak up
The AEU Victorian branch is always keen to hear from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members.
Recent federal and state government policies, programs, workforce restructures and announcements on strategies to improve outcomes for Indigenous students make activating the voice of our Koorie members even more important.
We are eager to make contact with any networks that may be operating in Victoria so we can listen to and canvas views and concerns. This will also give us a more in-depth understanding of what we need to do in our lobbying with governments and education departments.
For more information, or to forward comments, raise issues or arrange a meeting, please email Carolyn Clancy, vice president (primary).
Federal AEU representation
The AEU Victorian branch has seats on two federal AEU Indigenous committees.
Castlemaine Teacher Julie McHale is the Victorian elected representative on the Federal AEU Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education committee (ATSIEC).
Victoria is currently unrepresented on the AEU's federal TAFE ATSIEC. If you are interested in this position more information can be found by visiting the Federal AEU website or contact the federal AEU Indigenous officer on (03) 9693 1800.
The federal committees meet twice a year and the union pays for replacement cover at your school, travel, accommodation and other related costs.
