Capability Framework win in TAFE

The PSA has successfully forced TAFE NSW to consult over the implementation of the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework.

The PSA applied to the Fair Work Commission after TAFE NSW refused to comply with the enterprise agreement and meet with us again about the issue.

At the Fair Work Commission, TAFE NSW agreed to provide further information about the implementation of the Capability Framework, and in particular, the impact it will have on staff and measures taken to reduce any adverse effects.

TAFE NSW also agreed to meet with the PSA this week for further discussions and to suspend all action that uses the Capability Framework while consultation takes place.

TAFE NSW informed us that it has advised all Institutes to suspend all processes that use the Capability Framework.
