Recently we asked members to let us know if you are receiving a "red-circle" payment as members had contacted us with concerns that they had been underpaid.
This matter has been brought to the attention of regional offices by Together members and HR have noted that there is an issue of underpayment.

Yesterday in negotiations Queensland Health showed their true colours by outright rejecting some of our important claims.
QH rejected extra pay points for HP5 and HP6 and rejected a progression from HP3 to HP4. QH has said NO to ensure that our pay levels and opportunities for career progression were fairer and reflective of the work we do.

We’ve heard nothing but crickets from management this week which indicates to us they still aren’t moving on their position.
The exciting news is that we have had our first Protected Action Ballot back and it was successful! Congratulations to all of the members who have been getting together and voting to take action.

Our campaign is working!

A range of issues have been raised with me by union members at Policelink. Members have raised with me their concerns about the new shift swap policy and the possibility of some shift roster time changes that are currently being discussed.

Read here the full list of items. Now we need to act.

Together delegates have recently negotiated a final draft of the proposed TAFE Queensland Educators Certified Agreement 2016. While Together has given in-principle support for the deal, that support is subject to endorsement by Together members. So we need to know your thoughts. You can find the draft agreement here.
