We had a very high return rate with well over 50% of members voting, and over 98% of the votes were in support of the offer.
This is a fantastic result! Well done to delegates and union members for getting the department to agree to addressing your outstanding important issues that affect members across many disciplines and locations.
Your steering committee met and discussed the various classification reviews that will form your new agreement and the plans and frameworks that will need to be put in place to ensure the best outcomes for members. You can help by ensuring your details are up-to-date so your delegates can contact you. You can do that here. If you don't have an online account, you can create one by clicking "forgot password." It is important that we have your job title, discipline, workplace and contact details up to date.
If you have any questions please continue to email them through to email@example.com.
On Friday Queensland Health made this offer, which your delegates accepted in principle.
The offer includes a 2.5% increase, a $1250 sign on payment, improvements to employment security for all workers, removing the barrier to locality allowance, finally paying Torres Strait Islander workers allowances, addressing issues for clinical coders and more.
Importantly this offer has NO cuts to wages and conditions!
It was because of the actions you and every other union member in Health took that meant that this final offer was made. You made a huge difference - congratulations!
In March Together delegates from across the state met in Brisbane and with lots of debate, energy and discussion have produced two important documents.
