Western Sydney Teachers rally at Prue Car’s office


Teachers from across Western Sydney are stepping up their campaign for fair salaries and workloads, rallying outside Education Minister Prue Car’s Londonderry office at 4pm today to call on the Minns Government to honour its agreement to tackle the teacher shortage.


In the state electorate of Londonderry there are 21 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: Western Sydney teachers rally at Education Minister’s Londonderry electorate office

When: 4pm, Tuesday 15 August 2023

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

Where: 154 Queen Street, St Marys  

Contact: Nick Lucchinelli 0422 229 032
