Taking a stand for better workloads

Posted February 1, 2012 by Alex Scott

If you talk to any BSM or admin staff member in any school, they'll tell you how much work they already have to do to keep everything running smoothly. But Education Queensland wants to drop even more work on their desks, in the form of the School Maintenance Investment Program (SMIP).

The fact is that staff are already struggling with their workload. School communities rely on BSMs, and if we all stand together to support reasonable workloads, we can make sure our school communities get the quality services they deserve.

At an urgent meeting recently, Together delegates told Education Queensland that BSMs and school admin staff should not be doing project management related to the SMIP.

If you are performing project management for SMIP and this is affecting your workload, let your union office know immediately. Please email education@together.org.au

Together, we can take a stand against high workloads and send Education Queensland a message: the needs of our school communities must come first!
