Queensland Catholic (Colb9) Collective Bargaining

young_teacher.jpgNegotiations for a new Catholic school collective agreement will commence in 2019.

Our union has begun preparations for these negotiations and we need all members to be part of a strong collective voice to secure and enhance conditions.

 

Members fight back against insecure work

Insecure work is set to be a key theme of the bargaining campaign.


Insecure work affects 40% of Australian workers and the education sector is no exception.

 

Members in Queensland Catholic schools are taking action – sharing their personal experiences of insecure work and adding their support to our campaign to address the impact rolling fixed-term contracts and cuts to part-time hours are having on our school communities.

You can do something right now to restore
secure jobs and certainty of hours in our schools.

Log of Claims

Members were asked to have their say on the issues in Catholic schools they believe need to be addressed in the new agreement by taking part in our member survey.

The information gathered from the survey has been compiled into a Log of Claims, which was endorsed by members in November. 

The Log of Claims will inform the bargaining positions to be tabled to the employer when negotiations commence next year.

Watch the video below to learn more about the member consultation process, which informed the endorsed Log of Claims.

Review groups

Separate to the upcoming negotiations, a review into Middle Leader classifications has been formed.

The role of middle leaders in Catholic schools is diminished unless their work and contribution as a teacher and as a middle leader is recognised and remunerated.

This review follows a review into Teacher Classifications & Salaries, which concluded recently with a positive outcome for staff. Read more on the outcomes of the review here.
