The Core Agreement covers staff in the below agencies.

Note that in some cases not all of the staff within an agency are covered by the agreement (for example, Protective Security Officers in Queensland Police have their own agreement, as do Custodial Corrections Officers in the Department of Corrections). SO and SES staff are not covered by the provisions of the Core Agreement.

If you are in doubt or unclear, please contact your union office to ask (you can email core@together.org.au)
