Anglican Schools Collective Bargaining
Employees have voted to endorse the proposed Queensland Anglican schools' collective agreement.
The total results of the employee ballot are as follows:
89% employees accepting (1605 "YES" - 206 "NO" votes)
Members are to be commended for their efforts in finalising the new agreement that will govern wages and conditions in Anglican schools in coming years.
After member action highlighting the growing wage disparity suffered by Anglican school teachers, the employers have finally committed to a top teacher rate of $101,000 in 2018.
While members will welcome the revised employer offer to match this particular outcome achieved in other Queensland education sectors, concerns remain with respect to the employer wage offer for the remaining teacher classifications, Positions of Added Responsibility (PAR) and non-teaching staff.
