Your union in Community Corrections

Posted by Sean Waugh on May 29, 2020

Thank you to those who were able to dial in to the recent Community Corrections teleconference.


Yesterday, your Together delegates met to discuss your back-pay and what to do next to secure what you are owed. We don't need to tell you that you are waiting on your 2019 pay rise, improvements to your conditions and the $1250 bonus. Health members were assured by the government – assured by the Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace - in this letter that this would be paid before the end of this financial year.

  4. Public sector wages
