Bargaining with One Voice - Queensland Catholic Schools

New agreements to provide immediate backpay

The proposed collective agreements have been endorsed in the employer ballots.

Members are to be commended for their collective efforts that were essential to deliver the new agreements. Your action secured outcomes that are vastly improved compared to the original employer offers.

Payment of wage increases and backpay

The employers committed to make the wage increases and 2019 backpay after a successful ballot. This commitment must now become a reality.

The timing of these payments may vary between different Catholic school employers; however, its essential that this year’s well deserved pay outcomes are processed as soon as possible.

Full implementation of all provisions must be enforced

The agreements have been submitted to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) for formal approval and will commence their legal operation seven days after they are approved by the FWC.

While some agreement outcomes such as wage increases, new leadership salaries and backpay are immediate, other provisions will require continued member action if we are to fully realise these member wins. 

What will the new agreements mean for Catholic school staff?

Members should review our Advisories for a comprehensive breakdown on what the agreements will mean for employees. 

Member Factsheets are also available that further explain some of the key outcomes for members: 

Our member campaign and collective action has secured agreed outcomes well in excess of the original bargaining positions adopted by the employers. 
Your action has made a real difference. 


Thank you to our employee bargaining team provided essential insights at the bargaining table on the reality of working in a Catholic school. Our team comprised teachers and school officer reps from Diocesan and RI schools.
