Langports, Learn the 3Rs

In May, Langports English College in Brisbane became the first employer in the Queensland Education sector to lock teachers out without pay, simply for taking protected industrial action.

Independent Education Union (IEU) members have been forced to take protected industrial action (by wearing badges, wearing denim and stopping work for 30 minutes) because Langports refuses to address key bargaining issues:

  • Fair wage increases;
  • Paid marking and preparation time for casuals; and
  • access to the independent umpire to settle disputes.
The badges worn by members said Recognise, Respect, Reward (3Rs). 

The message members are sending to Langports is clear: learn the 3Rs

  • Recognise the contribution of teaching staff in providing quality education
  • Respect employees by listening to their fair bargaining claims
  • Reward teachers with fair remuneration and working conditions

Members have been negotiating with the employer for the past 14 months; it's time for Langports to address teachers' reasonable bargaining claims and learn the 3Rs.
