Teachers & ES Alliance

About TESA

Teachers and Education Support Alliance is a group of rank and file Victorian teachers who are members of the Australian Education Union.  We campaign for an active and democratic union that involves it members.  We believe strongly in the need to universal, free, secular public education.

Teachers and ES Alliance, along with many other teachers across the state are disillusioned with the role that the AEU leadership has played over recent years.  Many teachers feel as though the AEU leadership has sold out during negotiations regarding Enterprise Bargaining Agreements, making little progress in our working conditions and in some cases making our conditions worse!

Teachers and ES Alliance calls for:

1. Improved working conditions without trade-offs. Read more…
2. Smaller class sizes.
3. An end to contract teaching. Read more…
4. Abolish the VIT. Read more…
5. Public money for public schools. No funding for private schools. Read more…
6. For an active, democratic, campaigning union. Read more…
7. No individual contracts. Read more…
8. A campaign to increase involvement in the AEU by members and greater say in decision making, especially regarding our pay and conditions.
