Probation and Parole: What are your priorities?

Posted by Sean Waugh on September 16, 2014

There is no doubt that right now Fair Pay for All  is a priority for public servants – and so it should be! Waiting for a decent pay rise for over 2 years is too long - the hard working staff of Probation and Parole deserve fair pay rises to keep pace with the cost of living.

Do you want fair pay?

Posted by Kate Flanders on September 10, 2014

As we advised last week you will receive a pay increase this year of 2.2% soon but we have just been advised that this will not be paid until the 24 September 2014 pay run (it is backdated to 1 September).

The Newman government has chosen to apply this 2.2% figure which is well below the increases in the cost of living.

What should we ask for before the next state election?

Posted by Vivienne Doogan on September 3, 2014

We deserve a government that respects us and values the work that we do.

We want to know that politicians really are listening.

But to be effective we also need to make our claims very clear.
