Southern Downs Regional Council Agreement Certified

As your ally in the workplace at Southern Downs Regional Council, The Services Union is by your side to deliver back-to-back successful Certified Agreement outcomes despite Council's external representative continually trying to get in our way.

The Services Union attended the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission on 4 May 2023 to certify your new Agreement.

What does this mean?

The previous Determination has been terminated, and the new Agreement is in place. Therefore, you will receive back pay to July 2022, with another 4% wage increase only weeks away this July!

Wage Increases

  • 4% back-paid to 1 July 2022
  • 4% to be paid from July 2023
  • The greater of 3.5% or CPI (capped at 4%) from July 2024
Members of our Union know we are by your side to support you through maintaining and improving your working conditions, and it will only be a matter of time before we are back at the table. Let's keep Union density high to ensure the best possible outcome for the next round of negotiations.
