On Tuesday, we informed members that the State Government Departments Certified Agreement 2019 has been certified by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission. The replacement agreement will cover the same key issues that will be addressed in the current agreement, including rates of pay; Classification structures Hours of work Holidays Worker orientation provisions; and many other things. While the awards are presented by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC), agreements are negotiated by Queensland Health and Queensland Health staff representatives. After the agreement of the staff members covered by the proposed agreement (as part of a voting procedure), the agreements are certified by the QIRC. On December 20, 2019, the government and Queensland resolved the dispute resolution in arbitration. This means that the hearing scheduled for February 2020 must no longer be continued, since an agreement can be reached. The Palaszczuk government is currently negotiating a series of new collective agreements for the public sector with public sector unions. A replacement agreement is negotiated centrally by agency representatives and representatives of your union. The list of unions that are parties to the basic agreement is posted here.

As in our first term, the government negotiates in good faith to reach agreements that provide fair and fair wages and conditions. Further updates will be made available as the contract process progresses. At that time, payment data resulting from the agreement were not confirmed.
