The IEU represents non-teaching support staff in schools, colleges and other educational institutions, with the exception of those employed in early childhood services.
Support staff can include school secretaries, teachers' aides, laboratory and library assistants, canteen staff, maintenance workers and groundkeepers.
The Union has achieved regular increases for support staff comparable with those of teacher-members and has constantly sought to improve working conditions for support staff in line with improvements achieved for teachers. Occupational Health and Safety is a major priority of the union and of particular concern for support staff.
The participation of support staff within the Union is further strengthened through the School Support Staff Advisory Committee and the contribution of Support Staff Vice President Carolyn Collins as a member of the IEU Executive.
The School Support Staff Advisory Committee has seven members from a broad range of classifications and sectors including clerical employees, school assistants, boarding house staff, and grounds and maintenance staff.
