Together, we offer a powerful and competent professional voice for allied collaborators everywhere, no matter how they are labeled – professionals, generals, support agents or other titles. We were created only 50 years ago and we are a very active, inclusive and very effective representative for allied collaborators. Our success rate is unmatched and we set the standard for more equitable wage, recognition and employment conditions across the industry. Allied collaborators are the solid foundations on which the entire sector is built, but all too often underestimated and undervalued. TIASA`s job is to ensure the true value of the thousands of employees whose job it is not to provide services, but who are equally valuable. We work tirelessly to ensure that allied collaborators are recognized everywhere as truly equal partners and contributors to the success of every measure of our country`s higher education system, students and institutions. Did your employer follow the rules of your employment contract when they asked you to take a leave of absence during the blockage? COVID-19 does not exempt your employer from complying with the terms of your employment contract. Or the minimum legal requirements of the law. I don`t follow the rules, so they can`t take your vacation away from you. There are a number of employment contracts for different types of jobs: we are a young union, living, highly respected and innovative, constantly looking to the future while ensuring the benefits made during our many years of existence. Our job is to negotiate the best terms of pay and work, provide specialized advice and representation on all employment issues that affect you, and engage constructively on your behalf with executives at all levels, including government and other key decision makers. The vast majority of allied employees in our sector belong to TIASA, which gives us strength and influence.
Any new member who joins TIASA contributes to this strength and influence. We welcome you to TIASA, your technical vote for all aspects of your job and your future in the changing NZ higher education.

So get it up with your employer. You can request a special paid leave on the block while it is removed. This would be in good faith on the part of your employers. If they still don`t pay you, you may want to ask – as a last resort – to take your leave in advance.
