HPDO: Merry Christmas - you won your back pay!

Posted on December 22, 2016

It’s not a Christmas miracle – it’s your standing together that has won! You won your back pay.

Hundreds and hundreds of Together members recently contacted the Health Minister demanding answers to Queensland Health’s most recent offer, and demanding the full back pay you deserve.

Thanks to your collective strength and hard work contacting politicians, we have those answers and improvements on your enterprise agreement offer. You have ensured that today the government have provided a new offer to settle your agreement with Queensland Health.

The offer now includes full back-pay to the expiry of your last agreement. The offer has also been clarified on a few key points. You can see the details of the latest offer in this fact sheet.

Tell us what you think about the new offer by completing this poll by 12 midday 23 December.

The new offer with full back pay would not have been possible without you and your Together colleagues standing up for a fair go. Now, we need you – we need to respond to the offer by 12pm on Friday.

If this quick poll supports the offer there will be a full ballot with more time and a fully drafted agreement in the New Year. Tell us here let us know if you are happy with this offer. 

You can also vote via email: click here to vote YES or click here to vote NO. Please include your full name and membership number in the email.

I hope you have a safe, happy and healthy Christmas with those close to you.
