You won better employment security!

Posted by Together Queensland on December 6, 2016

Congratulations! Thanks to your hard work from next year temporary workers will have better rights and more employment security.  Last week the government with the support of the independents and Katter party passed amended legislation that will give public sector workers the right to lodge an appeal regarding the decision made not to convert them to permanent status. This will take effect in the new year.

This is a huge win for union members!

On the basis of this new offer coming through, your delegates voted to suspend the rally outside Parliament House that we were planning to hold today (and all other industrial action) while members consider the new offer.

EB9: I did it, you can too!

Posted by Brendan, Together Townsville delegate on November 22, 2016

Yesterday, my colleagues and I were the first group around the state to hold our public rally at Townsville Hospital. We had our HPDO colleagues turn out to join us. We had big local media coverage and we're following that up with calls to our local MPs. We talked about the things we're really worried about – job security and workload management – that Queensland Health is currently doing nothing to fix in our EB offer. We need the Minister to intervene now.
