Attention Together SOOs – Work bans back on!

Posted by Kate Flanders on October 18, 2018

As you may have read in last week's update we were SO CLOSE to agreement on TO translation, however, the Department have refused to provide an offer to date.

Following discussions with members in the last 24 hours we have therefore resolved to re-instate the work bans that were in place in Term 3.


Come to your local rally for better wages and conditions

Posted by Alex Scott on October 17, 2018

Next Tuesday 23 October we have an opportunity to show how strongly we feel about the fact that you deserve an EB pay rise!

The state government are sticking to their guns at the moment and not delivering an EB pay rise for the lowest paid workers in your Department and only 1.3% for the highest paid AO8’s this year.

This is less than everyone else in the public sector.

Why is the state government treating you differently to every other public servant? Is that fair? No way!

What is happening with HP pay parity?

I know that is the BIGGEST question.


This week's Award increase

Posted by Alex Scott on October 9, 2018

On Wednesday 10 October, many Queensland public servants will have their pay increased and will also receive backpay for the pay increase dated to 1 September 2018.

This pay increase is as an adjustment to award wage rates, which are now higher than the wage rates in the expired Core collective agreement.


Wages for State Government Security

Posted by Alex Scott on October 9, 2018

You will be seeing notices, pay slips and information about a pay rise due in this week's pay.

This is an award safety net adjustment that has been awarded by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission, flowing on the national minimum wage adjustment to you.


Education: Important EB Update

Posted by Kate Flanders on October 5, 2018

We still don't have an offer document from the Department of Education in response to our many claims to improve your wages and conditions this year. This is really disappointing.


Police: EBA Update + Two Days Commonwealth Games leave

Posted by Alex Scott on October 4, 2018

Your union delegates have been attending negotiations with QPS management to fight for fairer conditions for the work you do. Delegates have also been attending core negotiations to fight for a fair wage increase. The government has dug their heels in and offered you the worst wage offer in bargaining of any Queensland government and claiming an adjustment in your award safety net passed on by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission is enough.


Education: What's happening with my pay increase and my EB?

Posted by Alex Scott on October 2, 2018

I hope you had a great long weekend.

I was hoping to be able to email you a copy of an offer from the Department of Education in relation to the claims union members have made as part of bargaining negotiations late last week. However, despite being promised an updated offer following recent negotiations, we have yet to receive anything in writing from the Department.
