Wages Arbitration 

Your new collective agreement has been certified!

This agreement would not have happened without the hard work and dedication of Together members across the state.

Union members have secured significant wins on classifications, allowances, employment security and consultation. The arbitration of members' wages will continue in 2020.

Read the latest update here.


Arbitration is where the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (the independent umpire) will hear our case for improved wages and conditions and hear the Departments arguments as well and then make a final decision. It is a process like a trial, members will be witnesses. Get in touch at any time on education@together.org.au if you want to find out more. 

Here is a table showing what what wages we are fighting for, next to what the Department is proposing. As you can see for many Together members the Department was proposing no pay increase at all for the year 2018-2019.
