Yesterday Together Secretary Alex Scott, delegates Gordon Murray, Jason Hunt and David McInnes along with Michael Thomas from the union office met with the new Minister Mark Ryan.
The Minister has already visited Wolston Correctional Centre and stated how impressed he was with the work and commitment of CCOs he met and made it clear that his number one priority was the safety of Correctional staff.

Your Together delegates have been working very hard this Term trying to make the additional funding injection for school support staff next year happen in a sensible way.
Unfortunately we know that there is some bad advice circulating and we need to correct the record. It is an absolutely important time for you to get in touch and to clarify advice in writing so we can escalate things with regional office and central office.

On Thursday 29 November we'll be rallying outside Parliament House to send the message to the politicians – you must intervene now to give your health staff a fair and reasonable offer.
If you're outside of Brisbane, check the list of events here and come to your local rally.

It’s time to tell the Health Minister and the government that you are essential to our health system and your wages and conditions are just as important as nurses, doctors, teachers and police.
Yesterday I went with your delegates to a meeting with Queensland Health negotiators.
This was supposed to be a meeting to put real options on the table for a new agreement for your wages and conditions for the next three years. QH had nothing new to say.

Late yesterday I received a formal "offer" to form a certified agreement to govern your wages and conditions for the next 3 years.

On Friday, Michael Walsh, the Director-General of Queensland Health, emailed us about how working for Queensland Health is a great thing to do. We know that we're all committed to our work and do a great job for Queenslanders.
Email the DG to tell him just talking about values won't fix anything if he isn't bargaining in good faith with union members.

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.
