HPDO: Quick update - your pay and conditions
At the end of 2016, HP and DO Together members gave in-principle support to the government’s new offer that included full back pay to 16 October 2016.
Making sure you were back paid to the end of your last agreement only occurred because over 500 Together members contacted the Minister and took a stand.
Your delegates are now attending meetings to draft your new agreement – putting everything in to one comprehensive document. Once the full agreement is drafted all union members and staff will be balloted about whether to “accept” or “reject” the agreement.
By taking action, attending meetings and sending emails to decision makers, you have forced much needed improvements to your rights and conditions at work. Nothing would change for the better without you.
Your new agreement will give long-term temporary workers access to a fairer process to permanent employment. To make the most of this, it is essential that we have a strong understanding of temporary employment of union members across QH.
Your new agreement will be better with a stronger union! Ask your colleagues to join you as a member of Together today.
P.S. We will not have an estimated date for when your back pay will be delivered until after the ballots have occurred. We will then be able to give you a date for the delivery of your back pay.
