This week Queensland students who have completed year 12 are celebrating. However next week they will be faced with tough choices, choices the LNP have made harder.
Whether young Queenslanders choose to enrol at university, TAFE or enter the workforce they will be faced with the real world effects of LNP policies.

This morning your delegates and I put your bottom line position to Queensland Health again at the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission and they said no.
In our quick poll conducted over the last 24 hours, 96% of members said they wanted to put this bottom line to Queensland Health, and we put it strongly today.
The refusal of Queensland Health to come to a reasonable deal today is disappointing to say the least, but sadly not unexpected.

Prisoner overcrowding is dangerous. You know this and you are not making it up.

Tomorrow is the final day of conciliation where we may settle a deal with Queensland Health on your wages and conditions for the next 2-3 years.

As the end of Term 4 creeps closer it is more important than ever that we use this time to make sure that what we want for Christmas is on the agenda:
• Fair Pay
• A fair allocative model
• Certainty about our jobs
Kayleen and I will be in touch about the Flying Start news at the end of this week after a meeting on Thursday.

This week we have more ads on the air, thanks to you and the hundreds of new union members who have joined over our campaign for fair pay for all.
But as this is a campaign targeting politicians and asking them to keep their promises we also need to be very direct.

Because you work in a regional or remote area you may be entitled to receive a Divisional and District Allowance (parities). As pat of the current government's approach to stripping allowances they removed this entitlement from your Award. As a union we then raised this as a cut to your wages in our bargaining process.

What you do is important. Even with a large decentralised population we have amazing facilities and incredible health workers in every corner of Queensland.
Every day in Queensland Health you are keeping the system running and doing your best to provide quality health care. But the government who should be supporting you insist on putting the bottom line ahead of health care.
