Health: Respect us: Respect our work.

Posted on August 26, 2015

Administrative, Operational, Professional and Technical staff in Health keep our hospitals running and health services going.

Without support and professional staff in Health no clinical work could be done – so why does it feel like you are always left behind?

On 1 September AOs, OOs, TOs and POs are due a wage rise. Sign the petition here.

The Palaszczuk government have committed to pay public servants fairly and link politicians' wage rises to public servants. But the politicians don't have to wait months for a wage rise to come though.

On Thursday 20 August Peter Patmore, one of the most senior managers in the Department, said"we have taken no steps" to secure a pay rise for you despite having been asked for urgent action.

Our union wrote to the Health Minister on 3 August when it became clear that bargaining talks couldn't start and made the point then, loud and clear, we expect a pay rise on time.

Today we were contacted by Queensland Health management and we will be meeting with them this Friday. After that meeting we will report back with what action Queensland Health management are proposing in relation to your payrise.

Send a message now: every worker should be a priority for Queensland Health. 

Sign the petition and ask for the Minister to act on a pay rise for ward clerks, pathology assistants, allied health assistants, payroll staff, patient travel staff, librarians and all the administrative, technical, professional and operational workers in Health.

The government have taken action for other Health staff. It's time for fair pay for all - no more delays! This is the message we will be taking to the meeting on Friday.

The more people who sign the petition before our meeting, the stronger our message will be!
