Queensland Health Agreements OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED

In long overdue news for Queensland Health Operational Staff, the new EB10 and HPDO Agreements have been officially certified by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission.

This means that AWU members are now able to enjoy hard fought wins including:

  1. Proper backfilling arrangements for all operational staff.
  2. An independent review into workplace bullying.
  3. Real action to improve workplace health and safety.
  4. Three 2.5% wage increases, and a $1250 sign on bonus.
  5. Including part-time employees in the closed merit selection process.
  6. An increase to the foul linen allowance.
  7. Improved access to training for operational staff.
  8. No reduction in terms and conditions.

These are major improvements to your conditions at work that will make a real difference to operational staff right across Queensland.

This result was only possible because AWU members stood together and refused to be ripped off.

Whether it was taking protected action in 2019 to secure an offer that treats health workers with respect or successfully fighting back against the Queensland State Governments unfair and unnecessary wage freeze, AWU members have led the way for a better deal at work.

There’s never been a more important time to be a member of the AWU.

With the Agreements now certified, our focus is on making sure that we hold Queensland Health to account.

We know that there are some managers who will do anything possible to avoid doing the right thing, and we’ll be working hard to make sure AWU members don’t miss out on these significant terms and conditions.

We’re at our strongest when we stand together – talk to a non-member about joining the AWU today.

Be a part of our community.

Join the AWU.

Stronger together.
