AUGUST 9, 2016
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!
Now it is time for you to have your say.
Our union is a democratic one. This is your agreement, and it will govern your wages and conditions for the next three years. You now get to vote on whether you accept this offer.
This is an important part of the bargaining process. Make sure you lodge your vote and remind your union colleagues to also vote. Only union members can vote in this ballot. If the ballot of union members is successful, then Health will ballot ALL staff covered under this agreement.

In March Together delegates from across the state met in Brisbane and with lots of debate, energy and discussion have produced two important documents.
