PAY RISE FOR TAFE TEACHERS

TAFE NSW teachers will receive their largest pay increase in two decades with a 4% salary and allowance rise, following the NSW Labor Government's removal of the public sector wages cap. Starting salaries will increase from $88,842 to $92,396, and top-scale salaries from $105,362 to $109,576. This one-year agreement begins February 2024 and aims to address the skilled worker shortage and enhance TAFE NSW's attractiveness for industry professionals.

SURGICAL WAIT LIST REDUCED

The NSW Government is reducing the surgical wait list by embracing short stay and same-day surgeries. The Same Day and Short Stay Joint Replacement Program allows patients to go home the day after surgery when appropriate. Based on research, this program supports home recovery with prehabilitation and post-operative care. Early results show promising increases in same-day surgeries, improving patient experience and hospital capacity. The pilot aims for faster recovery and reduced hospital pressure.
