Ipswich Council overcome with inertia on wages
Members of The Services Union at Ipswich City Council have clearly told us they won’t settle for a lower pay deal than what has been gained elsewhere at Council.
That’s why you have participated in protected industrial action over the last fortnight in pursuit of a wages and superannuation package totalling 10% over three years.
As your ally in the workplace, we’ve worked closely with members to set up a strike committee. The committee will take the lead on implementing future protected industrial action with a view to convincing the Council to overcome its inertia in addressing your rightful claim for wage parity.
Your contribution will help get the message through to the Council that:
- we are yet to see any economic justification for different wage increases for different sections of the workforce;
- your colleagues at other Councils earn substantially more than you do;
- we have genuine concerns about Wage Relativity and the compression of Stream A employees’ salaries compared to your outdoor colleagues.
Members know we’re by your side for as long as it takes to secure a fair salary outcome.
