Autism Queensland have shut down negotiations

Posted by Megan Denny on November 28, 2019

Autism Queensland has labelled the negotiations on the 26th of November as the the last negotiation meeting. At no point during this meeting did either union group think that negotiations were actually complete. A number of issues were still being discussed but despite all of this, Autism Queensland have decided to cease negotiations.  

It is disappointing that Autism Queensland has taken this approach rather than continuing robust discussions. The decision now lies with you and your colleagues as to what you want to do from here.
