Business Managers

Your new collective agreement has been voted up by an overwhelming majority of Department of Education staff! This agreement would not have happened without the hard work and dedication of Together members across the state.

The agreement includes the maximisation of permanent hours, broadbanding for Business Managers up to AO7 (as an agreed matter) and guidelines for applying Business Manager classification levels. You also should have received your $1250 one-off payment on 26 February 2020.

Union members have worked very hard to secure more funding for school support staff. This has now meant there will be a reclassification of Business Managers roles within Queensland state schools.

The following position descriptions that include members feedback have been approved by the Department:
