EB10 ACTION SUSPENDED - Urgent union update - Meetings now report backs!

Posted on September 10, 2019

Together members standing strong and being prepared to take action has made a difference!

This afternoon, Minister Miles met with union delegates John Conlan, Ron Hale, Kate Flanders and I to say that he is personally intervening and asking that we suspend the union action scheduled for tomorrow.

The Minister asked to be able to discuss with the Premier and Deputy Premier, the financial offer that has been made by other agencies in recent public sector agreements and whether a similar offer can be made by Queensland Health in negotiations for EB10.

Given the Premier is overseas travelling and the Acting Premier needs to focus on the current bushfire emergency, he asked members to consider lifting the planned industrial action for one week to allow time for those discussions to occur.

Your union delegate steering committee has considered this and on the basis of the Minister’s support to put forward improved outcomes, they have recommended that we do not proceed with stop work action tomorrow.

There will still be meetings held in these locations at 12:30pm. I will be able to address you all via video conference to talk you through what is currently on offer and next steps.

Your action has worked. If it wasn't for Together members being prepared to take action we wouldn't have seen this intervention from the Minister.

We thank Minister Miles for being prepared to listen to union members' concerns.
