Mater Enterprise Agreement
If a job has a registered contract, the premium does not apply. However, nurses and midwives have not received a pay increase for nearly two years and the organization has rejected the UNQ`s request to pass on a pay increase through an administrative increase while negotiations are over. In addition, the organization threatened its nurses and midwives that if the agreement was rejected by them in the vote, Mater would withdraw the offer of reimbursement from the table. We call on you, as Minister of Health, to take urgent action on this issue in order to protect the health services provided by Mater from the obvious long-term consequences on staff engagement and the quality of services. In addition, your participation is necessary to ensure transparency on Maters` use of public funds and to ensure that nurses and midwives obtain a proposed final agreement guaranteeing conditions consistent with those of Queensland Health. Registered contracts apply until they are terminated or replaced. The Fair Work Commission can also help employers and workers who are embarking on the „New Approaches” program. Learn more about the new approaches on the Fair Labour Commission website. Remember that there is always a lot of information and activity when negotiating. You and your colleagues must continue to be active and engaged (more than ever) to ensure the implementation of the agreement and address issues in your workplace for the duration of the agreement.
Ask your colleagues to join you as a member of Together to make the most of this new agreement. The best way to express concerns about EB or other workplace issues is to contact your delegates or your union office. The most effective way to discuss work issues with your union is to email@example.com by email or phone at 1800 177 244 and speak directly to one of our experienced employees. Mater has made it clear that many of the current conditions of employment, which are compatible with Queensland Health nurses and midwives, will be eliminated or reduced. For example, nurses/midwives have been struck off classification/generic diplomas, restrictions on the payment of continuing education assistance, proportional access to Long Service Leave after 7 years, and reduced work pay on public holidays. The proposed rate of pay for public holiday work is lower than the Nurses Award 2010 and the Nurses and Midwives (Queensland Health) Certified Agreement (EB8). Your union representatives are still waiting to hear the tell tell when your pay rises will begin. If your union has more information, you will be updated. Don`t go alone if you have problems at work. Your delegates and your union office can help in a variety of areas, including: (but not limited) We write you the sub-signed with respect to business negotiations for nurses and midwives at Mater Health Services (Mater).
