Union members fight for each other.

Posted on November 25, 2016

Workers in Queensland have achieved much together in no small part because we, as union members, fight for each other.

Right now, Together members in Queensland Health are in negotiations with their employer for new agreements. Unfortunately, Queensland Health have come back with an insulting offer that doesn’t recognise the important and vital work our members do to keep our health and hospital services running every day.

Come to the rally to support Queensland Health staff – 12:00pm Tuesday 29 November outside of Parliament House (corner of George and Alice Streets). You can RSVP on Facebook here.

We’re asking for Health Minister Cameron Dick to intervene in negotiations to secure a fair outcome. After the government signed agreements with nurses, teachers, and police officers this year it’s important that the government come to the table for Together members who are vitally important to our public health system.

Workers all across the Queensland public sector know that strong protection of job security is important. It’s why we have campaigned for better legislation in Queensland to enshrine job protection for the public sector. This protection must also be enshrined in collective bargaining agreements that cover the health workforce – the largest single group in the Queensland public sector.

What happens to the employment conditions of health staff affects all of us.

Join me and Queensland Health members at their rally next Tuesday at 12:00pm outside Parliament.

Yours in union,

Vivienne Doogan

PS: This week Together members have rallied at regional centres like Cairns, Mackay, Townsville Bundaberg, Maryborough, Townsville and Toowoomba. Please join your fellow union members who will be coming in from hospitals all across the south-east next Tuesday to show them that you support their campaign for job security and an offer that’s fair.
