EB8: Ballot Result - Wage Rise and Working Conditions

Posted November 29, 2011 by Alex Scott

Today we have been able to finalise the ballot count on your wages and conditions for the next 3 years.

Thousands of members voted via SMS, email and postal ballot - congratulations for having your say!

The result of the ballot is that 90% of members have voted YES - meaning that you wish to move forward with the Queensland Health offer and draft this offer in to a formal document and have it certified by the Industrial Relations Commission.

Congratulations to all members on a fantastic campaign to date which has led to this important step forward in wages and conditions for the next 3 years.

As members would be aware the new offer to be formally written up now includes a 3% wage rise per year, each year. The first wage rise will be back-paid to 1 September 2011 after the new agreement is certified.

For full details of the offer members have voted to accept visit - www.healtheb8.org.au

Your delegates at our Union Council today also particularly noted that there are over 41 pay-points across the workforce covered by this Agreement that will receive a greater than 3% pay rise under the new agreement - with the lowest paid members earning pay rises next year of up to 3.8% via the $30 a week wage rise.

Next Steps

There will now be a process of drafting the Agreement and then Queensland Health will  also need to conduct a ballot of all staff before the new Agreement can be certified and back-pay applied.

Your Steering Committee delegates from across the state will continue to meet and update you on the drafting process.

Congratulations on a fantastic campaign to date and a huge turnout of members having your say!
