Qld Health Certified Agreement

The Palaszczuk government is currently negotiating a series of new collective agreements for the public sector with public sector unions. As in our first term, the government negotiates in good faith to reach agreements that provide fair and fair wages and conditions. The State Government`s 2015 Certified Agreement (Basic Agreement) expires this year. This agreement includes terms and conditions of employment for you and other staff of your agency. The replacement agreement will cover the same key issues that will be addressed in the current agreement, including rates of pay; Classification structures Hours of work Holidays Worker orientation provisions; and many other things. The government and all parties will now work on a replacement agreement. Once this process is complete, more information on the proposed agreement will be made public and all staff covered by the agreement will be put to a vote. We are pleased to inform you that the Certified Agreement (Queensland Health) Certified Agreement (No. 5) 2018 (MOCA 5) was certified last Friday and will be fully effective from Friday, May 31, 2019. A copy of MOCA 5 can be find here. Further updates will be made available as the contract process progresses. At that time, payment data resulting from the agreement were not confirmed. However, the government is working to ensure that this is done quickly.

In addition, on 3 October 2018, the Industrial Union sought assistance from the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission in negotiating the basic agreement. As such, the negotiations are now in conciliation proceedings. Whether through allocation, ongoing negotiations or a combination of the two, workers benefit from an increase of at least 2.5% on top of their current rates. Primary employment conditions for the majority of Queensland Health employees are imposed by bonuses and agreements. While the awards are presented by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC), agreements are negotiated by Queensland Health and Queensland Health staff representatives. After the agreement of the staff members covered by the proposed agreement (as part of a voting procedure), the agreements are certified by the QIRC.
