National SSO Week August 13 - 17 2018

08 August 2018

13 - 17 August 2018 is National School Services Officers (SSOs) week. It is the week we recognise the important role that SSOs play in educating Australia’s children and young people.

This year is also a year to focus on the Education Enterprise Agreement which is currently
being negotiated by your union with the State Government.

The enterprise agreement contains the working conditions and wages rates of all staff working in Education, including SSOs.

In consultation with members, the PSA has developed a clear log of claims for SSOs and is representing your interests at the bargaining table.

The PSA has developed a kit for SSO Week 2018 you can use to highlight the work you do at your school as part of the campaign to get a fair and respectful Enterprise Agreement for SSOs.

You can access the kit here.

(If you would like a hard copy of the kit please email PSA by Friday 10 August 2018)

To celebrate SSO Week we suggest you:

  •  Organise a special morning tea for SSOs
  •  Identify an SSO EBA contact person for your school
  •  Sign the group pledge
  •  Take photos and post them on social media using the hashtag #SSOweek
