Great News at Banana Shire Council

Local Authorities March 7, 2019

Great news for all members of The Services Union at Banana Shire Council!

Yesterday we certified your new agreement at the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC). All conditions of the new agreement now apply, including:

  • Commitment to collective bargaining
  • Casual Conversion
  • Accrual of entitlements while on Workers’ Compensation
  • Domestic and Family Violence Leave
  • Employment security
  • Improved consultation clause
  • Union delegate rights and trade union training leave

Perhaps most importantly, you’re in line to receive the following pay increases:

  • 3.5% backdated to 1 July 2018
  • 3% or State Wage Case (whichever is greater) from 1 July 2019
  • 2.5% or State Wage Case (whichever is greater) from 1 July 2020

By any measure, this is a great result and one that all members of our Union can be proud of helping to achieve. If you’re not yet a member, do your bit to ensure we maintain and build on these conditions into the future and join now:
