Minister Visits North Coast TAFE Campus

Union pressure gets action in Port Macquarie.

After meeting with the CPSU NSW, Minister for Skills, TAFE and Tertiary Education, Steve Whan,

went to Coffs Harbour TAFE campus to announce improvements in the college’s operations.

At a meeting with the Minister, CPSU NSW Departmental Committee Chair Brook Down (pictured below) had highlighted the specific need to fix issues in the campus, some of which have been outstanding for over four years.

The Minister assured the delegation that he would investigate those issues and he discussed the conversations with TAFE on the importance of open dialogue with the union.

The meeting at Parliament House was to discuss where an allocated $300 million will be spent.

Also at the meeting were Assistant General Secretary Troy Wright, Industrial Manager Julie Bond and Senior Industrial Officer Lisa Nelson.

The delegation presented the Minister with a broad overview of issues raised through the union, including the lack of a fully functioning emergency management system and all it entails, air conditioning and leaking buildings, and a lack of security staff.
