The IEU continues to strongly advocate for the workplace safety and employment security of our members throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
COVID-19 poses a major health and safety issue for all staff in schools. Under the Work Health and Safety Act, employers are bound by law where practicable to provide a safe workplace free from hazards.
This page collects relevant resources and information regarding COVID-19. This page will be updated with new information, resources, and links regularly. Many of these resources are links to documents and PDFs – check your downloads folder if you can’t find it after clicking a link.
Members can contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (08) 9373 1000 for advice.
Anybody working in non-government education in Western Australia can join the IEU here.
