State Agreements Qld
From 9 March 2020, the proposed agreement and the corresponding explanation of the agreement will be available on www.forgov.qld.gov.au/state-government-entities-certified-agreement-2019. The following awards and agreements apply to Queensland Health employees: The Palaszczuk government is currently negotiating a series of new public sector bargaining agreements with public sector unions. 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. As in our first term, the government negotiates in good faith to reach agreements that provide fair and fair wages and conditions. Queensland Health has seven important agreements that prescribe wages and other conditions of employment for workers (excluding executives and executives). Queensland`s employment standards are a series of nine minimum employment requirements that are guaranteed by law for workers in the national labour relations system. Primary employment conditions for the majority of Queensland Health employees are imposed by bonuses and agreements. Certified agreements provide for negotiated terms of employment between an employer and the public sector unions concerned on behalf of workers. Yesterday, the State Government made legislative changes to the Industrial Relations Act 2016 to implement the Prime Minister`s announcement that it would result in a “wage freeze” in the 2020/2021 fiscal year. Commissioner Thompson accepted TQ`s application and issued the referral on the same day.
The case is now assigned to a full bench and is listed in the instructions for the hearings. The Office of Labour Relations will administer arbitration on behalf of the government. If you have any questions about the progress of arbitration, please contact your union or your agency`s IR/ER team. The Government remains committed to confirming an alternative agreement as soon as possible and, to that end, remains open to discussions with union negotiators on any issues that can be resolved outside of arbitration.
