St George/Kogarah teachers rally at Chris Minns’ office


Teachers from across the St George/Kogarah region are stepping up their campaign for fair salaries and workloads, rallying outside Premier Chris Minns’ Kogarah office at 4pm today to call on the NSW Government to honour its agreement to tackle the teacher shortage.


In the state electorate of Kogarah there are 13 full time teacher vacancies. A parliamentary question on notice in July revealed there are 1820 vacancies across the State.  


The Government struck and then reneged on a one year agreement to lift wages to make beginning and experienced teachers the nation’s best paid. It backtracked in early August by insisting on an additional three year clause capping wage movements at 2.5 per cent. This counterproductive measure undermines and erodes the first year increase. 


Today’s rally will be addressed by Teachers Federation acting President, Henry Rajendra along with local teachers who are fed up with being overwhelmed and overworked.


What: St George/Kogarah teachers rally at Premier’s electorate office

When: 4pm, Thursday 17 August 2023

Who: Henry Rajendra, acting President Teachers Federation + local teachers and activists

Where: 22-24 Regent Street, Kogarah  

Contact: Nick Lucchinelli 0422 229 032

A number of ITECA Higher Education members have referred to this as an international student tax which is understandable because,…
