Happy International Women's Day!

Posted by Together Queensland on March 8, 2017

Happy International Women’s Day! Today we celebrate Together women and our commitment to women’s rights in the workplace and the community.

EB9: Ballots, back pay and pay rise

Posted by Together Queensland on February 23, 2017

In the last month we have been continuing to meet with Queensland Health and finalise your new collective agreement.

We need to get it right now to avoid any misunderstanding down the track. We know it’s difficult waiting but please be assured your union delegates are fighting hard to make the clauses in your agreement the best possible.
