Negotiations for a replacement agreement for the State Government Certified Agreement 2015 (the basic agreement) between your agency representatives and your union are ongoing. See the list of unions that are parties to the basic agreement. On 3 October 2018, Together Queensland, Industrial Union of Employees, requested the assistance of the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC) to reach an agreement on the negotiations for the Certified State Enterprise Agreement (the Basic Agreement). That is why the negotiations are now in conciliation. OIR attends conciliation conferences on behalf of the Government and will, where appropriate, request the participation of representatives of the Agency. As you may know, your current agreement, AED8, expires on 30 June. Because of the Newman government`s changes to the Industrial Relations Act, agreements can only be renegotiated after the corresponding price has undergone the “modernization process.” On 20 December 2019, Government and Together Queensland resolved the issues at issue in the arbitration. This means that it is no longer necessary to continue the hearing scheduled for February 2020, as an agreement can be reached. The nominal expiry date of the basic agreement was 31 August 2018.
However, negotiations on the basic agreement between the parties are continuing in good faith. All representatives are actively participating in the negotiations with a view to reaching an agreement in principle by 30 September 2018. In accordance with the government`s wage policy, the salary anniversary date of the September 1, 2018 agreement will be maintained in this case. In the meantime, see a copy of the concordance heads (PDF, 288KB). The Labour Relations Office will now meet with the parties to the union negotiations to finalize the development of the proposed certified replacement agreement. The government and all parties will now work to develop a certified replacement agreement. Once this process is completed, further information will be published on the proposed agreement and all staff members who will be covered by the agreement will be put to the vote. The Palaszczuk government is currently negotiating with public sector unions a series of new collective agreements for the public public sector. This page contains information about the agreement, the ballot paper and a list of your contacts with the agency.
Voting will open on 24 March 2020. A replacement contract is negotiated centrally by representatives of the agency and representatives of your union. See the list of trade unions that are parties to the basic agreement. . . .
