From 9 March 2020, the proposed agreement and the corresponding explanation of the agreement will be available on www.forgov.qld.gov.au/state-government-entities-certified-agreement-2019. While the awards are presented by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC), agreements are negotiated by Queensland Health and Queensland Health staff representatives. After the agreement of the staff members covered by the proposed agreement (as part of a voting procedure), the agreements are certified by the QIRC. The government will continue to approve the agreement in principle in accordance with standard procedures. Once this approval is confirmed, the single payment will be processed and further communications regarding the date of payment will be made. The Labour Relations Board will now meet with union negotiators to complete the development of the proposed replacement agreement. Queensland Health has seven important agreements that prescribe wages and other conditions of employment for workers (excluding executives and executives). If you have any questions about the contracting process, please contact your union or your agency`s appropriate IR/ER team. In the coming weeks, a copy of the proposed final agreement will be released and/or published on ForGov`s website.

On that date, additional information on the terms of the agreement, the electoral process and the timetable will also be provided. A vote is scheduled for the end of March, early April. In addition, on 3 October 2018, the Industrial Union sought assistance from the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission in negotiating the basic agreement. As such, the negotiations are now in conciliation proceedings. This page contains information about the agreement, the ballot paper and a list of your agency contacts. Voting will begin on March 24, 2020. On October 3, 2018, the Workers` Industrial Union asked the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC) to help Queensland Health employees enter into contracts (basic agreement).
