Queensland Teachers Enterprise Agreement
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 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. The replacement agreement will cover the same key issues that will be addressed in the current agreement, including rates of pay; Classification structures Hours of work Holidays Worker orientation provisions; and many other things. A replacement agreement is negotiated centrally by agency representatives and representatives of your union. The list of unions that are parties to the basic agreement is posted here. The Labour Relations Board will now meet with union negotiators to complete the development of the proposed replacement agreement. QTU is working with DoE to determine how eligible new teachers are treated. We will provide more details on this as soon as this is confirmed with DoE, but the Union is working with the department to ensure the security of the members` employment.
Schools are equipped with resources for an extra day per teacher during the third semester. The allowance is granted per secondary school teacher (less than one day per teacher, who is allowed to teach a higher and a secondary subject). The calculations used to determine the number of FTEs from the second cycle of secondary education to school correspond to the method of indensation in previous years, when determining the number of secondary school teachers who must form a school needed to provide a wide range of curricula for half of the cohort. Teachers who completed two years of service on November 19 (certification date) can now receive an invitation to the perm-time conversion process. Those who have this service and do not have a job for next year should first contact their sponsor and contact the regional staff department. You should specify that under the new certified agreement, you are now eligible for permanent conversion. Whether through allocation, ongoing negotiations or a combination of the two, workers benefit from an increase of at least 2.5% on top of their current rates. In addition, on 3 October 2018, the Industrial Union sought assistance from the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission in negotiating the basic agreement.
