On Friday educators mobilised like never before.
The Liberals announced they would move to block our Quality Fund wage increase at 4:30 pm on Thursday. At 8:30 am on Friday thousands of educators and employers started ringing their spokesperson Sussan Ley.
It was quite literally the fastest, biggest response we’ve ever seen.
By the afternoon the ABC and The Australian were covering our issue. The Liberals began telling members it was a mistake and they would clarify. Then they stopped answering their phones!
We achieved verbal assurances late Friday but we really need a formal written response. Until then we can¹t be sure what the Abbott government’s intention is.
