Posted by Alex Scott on October 22, 2018

Next Tuesday 30 October come to the rally outside Parliament House at 5pm to make sure you are heard.

We have an opportunity to show how strongly we feel about the fact that you deserve the same rights as your colleagues in Queensland Health and the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Congratulations on your actions over the past couple of weeks. Members in Child Safety, Youth & Women have never been so active and dedicated to seeking a fair deal.


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!


Attention Together Therapists – work bans back on!

Posted by Kate Flanders on October 17, 2018

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