Learn more about the status of negotiations on the state government`s certified agreement to replace the agreement. It is proposed that the agreement, once certified by the QIRC, replace the state government`s certified agreement in 2015, which will be denounced by mutual agreement between the parties concerned. This page contains information about the agreement, the ballot paper and a list of your agency contacts. Voting will begin on March 24, 2020. The government has just approved the agreement in principle for the basic agreement. Negotiations for a replacement contract for the 2015 agreement reviewed by the state (basic agreement) will continue between your agency`s representatives and your union. The list of unions that are parties to the basic agreement is posted here. Queensland Health has seven important agreements that prescribe wages and other conditions of employment for workers (excluding executives and executives). The government and all parties will now work on a replacement agreement. Once this process is complete, more information on the proposed agreement will be made public and all staff covered by the agreement will be put to a vote. The government will continue to approve the agreement in principle in accordance with standard procedures. Once this approval is confirmed, the single payment will be processed and further communications regarding the date of payment will be made.
