In the last 2 years Together members have secured more than $240 million in extra funding for support staff in Queensland State Schools. This huge win was only possible due to the hard work of thousands of union members over a number of years.

We are stronger together. Members can access advice, support and assistance by contacting us at 1800 177 244 or schools@together.org.au.
