Members Off To Great Start at Ipswich City Council!
The Services Union extends a hearty welcome back to all members at Ipswich City Council for 2019! You can also say hello to your new Certified Agreement (CA), which applies across council now that we have had it approved by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC). As well as maintaining and improving working conditions, your new CA has delivered a pay increase of 2.75% plus $500 from October 2018, with further increases of 2.5% in October 2019 and 2020.
Congratulations to our Union’s Workplace Delegates and all members who worked hard to deliver a great bargaining outcome.
The Services Union has also recently reminded Council of its obligations in terms of both notifying staff and the Union of major workplace change, and respecting members’ rights to be represented by their Union.
2019 is off to a great start, thanks to what Union members have achieved. Encourage new starters to join, which is easy at www.theservicesunion.com.au. Direct any questions to your Workplace Delegate, and if there is no delegate in your work area and you are interested in maintaining and improving your working conditions, contact your organiser: firstname.lastname@example.org.
