A new year's resolution for Queensland Catholic school employers

Fireworks4_amk.jpgCatholic employers: Provide leadership and show you care

A new year brings new opportunities. It is a time to put negativity and failures behind and look positively to the future.

For employees in Queensland Catholic schools, whether or not 2016 will be a positive year is up to the employers.

As negotiations near eight months in length and despite a growing community campaign, employers have continued in their failure to show they care about members’ concerns regarding inequitable wages and conditions and the lack of time to fulfil professional duties.

Chapter have been asked to send a message to their employer calling on them to make a new year’s resolution to provide leadership and show they care about employees and the future of Queensland Catholic schools.

Members can also send a direct message to their employer asking them to make a new year’s resolution to show that they care by:

  • recognising employees’ ever-increasing workloads and ensuring adequate measures are put in place to address them.
  • showing respect for the dedicated work of teachers by providing them with wages comparable to those received by their interstate colleagues and ending the decade long wages discount.
  • providing a just reward to our term time employees for their contribution to the school community through the provision of the community standard of four weeks annual leave.

Click here to send a new year's message.  

(Please note: the name and email provided will be visible in the email that is sent to Queensland Catholic school employers.)
