Your chance to make a difference for the Fraser Coast

Posted by Together Queensland on January 30, 2014

Will the government privatise more services? How can Hervey Bay meet the growing needs of a disadvantaged and aging committee if the State Government continues to withdraw services? Over 50 business closed in the Maryborough CBD last year. How can we keep jobs in Maryborough when more public services are being downsized and we can already see that business are closing every time we lose public sector jobs? What happens when the doctors are all put on contract - does this mean that we will lose doctors from our hospitals? What happens if the Maryborough Prison is privatised? Will we keep our health services? How can we fight for child safety if the Carmody report's recommendations are implemented? What happens to staff working in AS and RS as their work is taken over by the non government sector? How can you make sure that your local state school still has its schools support workers ensuring that your kids teachers can teach?

Together General Meeting of Members - South Burnett

Posted by Together Queensland on January 30, 2014

Together is holding a General Meeting of Members for the South Burnett area next week.  All members are encouraged to come along and meet with their local Organiser and Delegates to discuss issues affecting workers across the state and region. It would be great if you could encourage work colleagues, union or non-union members to attend the meeting so that they can be informed about what’s happening across the sector and what union members are doing in response.

Send our SMOs some support.

Are you overloaded?

Posted by Vivienne Doogan on January 22, 2014

When you get home after a long day at work you need to ensure your errands are complete and your responsibilities are in order. You may need to organise dinner, feed your pets, keep your fitness in check or make sure your kids get their homework done.

These tasks become almost unbearable if you’re feeling burnt out and overloaded by your day at work. Feeling like this can lead to overfatigue and illness.
