Welcome to the Together Department of Education Arbitration blog. See below for updates about the arbitration for your wages and conditions.
We hope you are having a positive start to 2020 at work.
Together we can make great improvements to work this year.
Congratulations! With a majority of Together members voting in the ballot for Department of Education agreement offer it was overwhelmingly approved.
After months of lobbying as well as pursuing our claims in arbitration we have been made a new offer to secure improvements on Monday 9th December. I’m sorry, I realise that the letter of offer does cause some confusion, particularly about wages, I have tried to put some clarification below.
The Department has provided an offer for your EB Agreement. You can read it HERE.
Our union is a democratic one. This is your agreement, and it will govern your wages and conditions for the next three years. You now get to vote on whether you accept this offer.
Following our win in the State Wage Case we have had it confirmed today that the 3% and back-pay to 1 September 2019 will be paid on 1 January 2020.
We hope you are having a good start to the week.
Great news! Yesterday evening the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission handed down their decision in the State Wage Case.
