CSYW & YJ: Update on your EB ballot

Posted on April 3, 2020

This morning, you would have heard from your Director-General about a ‘pause’ in your EB ballot that was due to open at 9AM today.

We have emphasised to the Department that we understand the Premier’s comments from yesterday, regarding a ‘pay freeze’ for public servants, should not have any impact on your EB. We have already given in-principle agreement, and wage increases will be decided by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission and if the ballot does not proceed then we will still be in arbitration. If the ballot does not proceed, we will still be in arbitration. 

You are hard-working public servants who deserve to see the other improvements in this EB. Many of you will continue to do essential, frontline work during this crisis. You deserve better.

We are continuing to follow up with the Departments and government centrally to progress the ballot as soon as possible. As soon as we have more information we will let you know.

As always, if you have questions please get in touch on either csyw@together.org.au or youthjustice@together.org.au or by calling 1800 177 244.
