This morning Commissioner Fisher issued her decision to move our negotiations with Queensland Health about your wages and conditions in to a conciliation process with the Industrial Relations Commission.

In the last week thousands of HPs and DOs have indicated that you are prepared to take action to make sure your rights and the rights of your future colleagues are not eroded.

What happens now?

Now we will have 3 weeks of a conciliation process where the Commission will work out the key differences between us and QH.

Your survey answers have made it clear what your priorities are and your delegates will take those comments in to this process.

What this also means is that we won’t have any ballots about industrial action run by the ECQ. Instead what we will have will be opportunities for members to take action locally to get the attention of QH and local media to apply maximum pressure to QH and the politicians to change their position during the conciliation process.

Our ad campaign in the last week about public sector wages has been getting some attention but the issues that matter to HPs and DOs about service delivery and cuts to conditions will need to be highlighted in the next 3 weeks as well.

Local organisers and delegates will be in touch about these opportunities.

Congratulations on reaching this point from a position of strength. HPs and DOs are a strong union group and you demonstrate this every day to your employer.

I look forward to working with you on the next steps.
