HPDO & EB9: Congratulations Together members!

Posted on June 23, 2017

Congratulations to you and your union colleagues!

Next week you will get your hard-fought and won back pay for your new EB Agreement. Thanks to you, the union members who took action and took on Queensland Health, everyone is getting their full back pay on 28 June.

These pay rises and back pay do not just happen. Remember last year? Queensland Health were refusing to pay back pay until hundreds of Together members took action and asked the Minister to intervene and guarantee the back pay. Without your efforts your colleagues would not get the back pay they are this week. Together we win!

Without union members, and particularly without your amazing union delegates, who have spent months and months coming up with issues to raise, attending negotiations, planning and taking industrial action, doing political lobbying and making a stand none of this would be possible.

Next week we are holding celebrations in major sites to celebrate you as union members. Being a member makes a difference. It makes a difference in your pay packet and in your workplace. We have made positive changes and without you, none of that would happen, it is not automatic or out of the goodness of someone’s heart.

To see a list of locations for celebrations see here.

Remind your colleagues next week that they should thank you for your efforts and that they should join you as a member.

If you have any questions about your new agreement or want to get in touch email us at health@together.org.au or call us on 1800 177 244.

We are stronger together!
