Moreton Bay Regional Council Win!
The Services Union’s bargaining team today finalised an in-principle agreement with Moreton Bay Regional Council. The big news is that the proposal not only removes the inequitable two-tier wage system, but also delivers service increments for staff coming off the lower tier!
Additionally, the deal contains a clause for permanent conversion after 24 months on max-term contracts.
Congratulations to long-term members of The Services Union who stuck with an extensive campaign, and to newer members who joined more recently to help get the deal on the table.
We will shortly post details of paid-time meetings at which union members will vote on whether the proposal should be put to an all-staff ballot. Strong and growing union membership got us where we are. If you’re not yet a member, join to have the final say on the proposal: www.theservicesunion.com.au.
