HPDO Ballot Successful

Posted on May 19, 2017

Congratulations! The HPDO agreement ballot was a success with a 98% YES vote!

The wage increases and the improvements in these agreements are a direct result of the hard work of your union delegates and the action of Together members. Together you are a powerful force for better pay and conditions in your workplace. 

Now we can move to certification of the agreement in the Industrial Relations Commission and the payment of wage increases and back pay. We are working with Queensland Health to ensure these payments can be made by the end of this financial year.

Once the agreement is certified we can start work on implementing the new provisions and the reviews of industrial conditions under your new agreement. These reviews and the implementation process will require continued activity by Together members to successfully improve your and your colleague's working lives

The reviews under the new HPDO agreement include reviews of:

  • A workload management tool
  • Best practice rostering guidelines
  • Hours of work provisions and Accrued Days Off for HPs;
  • Eligibility criteria for payment of the student clinical education allowance
  • Attraction and retention arrangements for medical physicists.

To be involved in these reviews and the ongoing implementation of the new agreement in your workplace, please let us know at health@together.org.au.

Congratulations again! Being a member of Together means standing up for what's right and winning, your colleagues can join you as a member here.
