The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) is proving challenging for our community as we confront a likely increase in cases and the need to manage the operations of our workplaces. Your health and safety is the AEU’s highest priority at this time.
These unprecedented circumstances are raising concerns and anxiety for many members.
We are demanding that employers including the Department of Education and Training (DET) provides appropriate support to AEU members across a range of issues, including health and safety, pay, arrangements for casual staff, and closure of workplaces.
The situation is changing very quickly. In situations like these, AEU members are at the heart of ensuring children and students are supported, and that their families have clear information about the operation of their places of education.

If members have specific inquiries, they should email [email protected] or contact the AEU directly on 1800 AEU VIC (1800 238 842). Due to high demand, there could be a delay in responding to emails - however, we are aiming to respond as quickly as possible.
The union will update advice to members as the situation changes.
