The AEU's Support Staff Week of Action each year acknowledges School Services Officers (SSOs), Early Childhood Workers
(ECWs) and Aboriginal Education Workers (AEWs). We know that sites could
not function without you and everything you do helps support young
people to achieve their potential.
‘Support Staff – Essential for Learning’ was the theme for the 2020 Support Staff Week. The 2021 theme will be announced soon.
It’s a week when we celebrate, but it’s also a week when we take action to improve the working lives of our support staff colleagues. ‘One Staff – One Union’ is more than just a slogan – it’s the way members at a site should operate to ensure all members are heard and all members work together to achieve the best outcomes.
The AEU SSO, Early Childhood and Aboriginal Education Consultative Committees are currently developing the member action for 2021 and members will be notified soon about how to get involved.
