eHealth - An update on your change management and 18 vacant positions

Posted by Together Queensland on December 14, 2016

Recently, Together delegates met with management to discuss the issue of the 18 vacant positions and the change management that is currently taking place within eHealth this week. Although we are yet to receive all the answers, there are a few outcomes worth sharing with members today.

eHealth delegates will now meet on a fortnightly basis with management, with our next meeting on Tuesday 20 December and we will send you a communication after each of these meetings.


EB9 & HPDO: Your back pay

Posted by Together Queensland on December 14, 2016

Email the Health Minister today to ask for an answer by Christmas.

Over the last few months Together members have met, rallied, stopped work and voted in over 140 Protected Action Ballots (PABs) to put pressure on Queensland Health and the government to get a better offer.

You have made a difference to what the next 3 years will look like for you at work. It was you who forced the government to give you a revised offer on 29 November but now QH and the Minister are dragging the chain again.


Child Safety members standing together for fairness

Posted by Together Communities Team on December 7, 2016

"That could have been me. It could be our CSSC next week."

Members across the state have been saying similar things since the announcement about the Caboolture case. Of course, any child death is a tragedy and few feel that more acutely than those of you who work so tirelessly every day to prevent terrible circumstances like this happening.
