State Government Entities Certified Agreement 2019 (Core 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. If you have any questions regarding the agreement process, please contact your union or the appropriate IR/ER team at your agency. 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. Voting on the draft government certified agreement on the state in 2019 is now open. Voting will close on Friday, 3 April 2020, at 5 p.m. Congratulations to you and your colleagues at Together for ensuring that you and your colleagues received the «one-time payment» of $1250 after the state`s wage policy change in 2019. In accordance with the government`s public sector wage policy, it is expected that Core Agreement employees will receive a one-time payment for the resolution of negotiations through a certified 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. On 17 January 2020, an agreement in principle was reached with all parties to the union negotiations.
Yesterday, the State government presented legislative amendments to the 2016 Labour Relations Act in order to implement the Prime Minister`s announcement of a «wage freeze» in the 2020/2021 financial year. Civil servants covered by the basic agreement will receive a salary increase of 1.75% as of today. The salary increase is the result of Together`s desire to increase your bonus salaries by 1.75% through the State Wage Case. 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 anniversary date of the agreement of September 1, 2018. 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. As of March 9, 2020, the proposed agreement and related explanatory documents will be available under www.forgov.qld.gov.au/state-government-entities-certified-agreement-2019.
Whether through allocation, ongoing negotiations, or a combination of the two, workers receive an increase of at least 2.5% on top of their current contract rates. The replacement agreement will cover the same key issues as addressed in the current agreement, including rates of pay; classification structures; hours of work; leave plans; provisions on consultation of workers; and many other things.
