Corrections Update - 31 May
Yesterday your delegates met with the department for an out-of-session EB negotiations meeting. This was the first meeting since we secured the minister’s intervention last week.
It was very different and very positive to see the department genuinely participated in the negotiation process. Just goes to show what a bit of industrial strength can achieve!
We tabled wage comparisons between us and other top tier public safety agencies in Queensland and more importantly we tabled a comparison between us and every other state in Australia. It's important that we make very clear to the department how you feel about your wages.
The department have agreed to resume meetings every Tuesday and are currently costing our proposals for discussion.
Reminder that industrial action is paused while this change in attitude from the government and department continues.
We have also published a video outlining these updates which is available here.
