NSW Teachers Federation boss Angelo Gavrielatos to step down


NSW Teachers Federation President Angelo Gavrielatos will not be renominating for the role at the union’s upcoming elections this year, the CBD has reported.

According to the report, Gavrielatos has anointed deputy president Henry Rajendra as his replacement, and Amber Flohm and Natasha Watt as deputy and senior vice president.

Public school teachers in NSW have been calling for fair pay.

The ballot for the elections open on August 16 and close on September 20, with others expected to nominate themselves as well.

Gavrielatos’ decision to stand down comes after he played a significant role in education politics at state and federal level for 20 years.

Most recently, the Greek Australian was hoping to strike a deal with the NSW Government over a promised pay rise for teachers, but these negotiations fell through last month.
