EB8 - latest information and back pay details

Posted April 30, 2012 by Alex Scott

At the EB8 implementation group Together delegates were informed that the Certification of the EB8 agreement will take place in the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC) on the 8th May 2012.

If the agreement is certified on this date Queensland Health has informed delegates that the 3% wage increase will be applied to pays on either the 13th or the 27th of June 2012.  

A further umail will be sent to members clarify this date after the certification of  EB8. 

Back pay of 3% to 1st of September 2011 will be paid on the 25th July 2012.

Together union members have worked hard to achieve this wage increase and retained their conditions as part of the EB8 stronger together campaign in 2011.

Members undertook massive work bans and rallies across the state as part of this campaign to force the government to listen, which resulted in this agreement.

Come out and celebrate at labour Day celebrations across the state on the 7th of May the day before certification in the QIRC.

Details of celebrations in your area are on the Together website

EB8 Celebration activities will also be organised to take place across the state when you receive your back pay.
