Review of classification structure
The review of the classification structure is one of the major pieces of work to arise as a consequence of the new certified agreement.
A preliminary meeting with DET was held in mid-November 2016. Draft terms of reference for the working group have been developed and are to be finalised at the next meeting (to be held early in term one).
As the review will result in a change to the classification structure, i.e. it is industrial in nature and arises as a consequence of the certified agreement, the parties to the working group are the QTU and DET. Further meetings will be held this year and a reference group will be established that will provide input to the working group. The final composition of the working group will be determined at its next meeting.
The scope of work being undertaken by the joint QTU/DET working group is to include:
- leading the review of streams 2 and 3
- inviting and coordinating submissions for the review
- undertaking an analysis of work value and comparative remuneration levels
- examining drivers and impacts on classifications
- communicating with key stakeholders
- preparing a review summarising the findings of the review for the Queensland Government, which will inform EB negotiations.
As the review will inform negotiations for EB9, it is important that during what is likely to be a state election, all parties commit to recognising the importance of the review and delivering its outcomes for Queensland’s school leaders. The QTU will provide further information and seek advice from members when work recommences this term.

QTU stands in solidarity
The Queensland Teachers’ Union wishes to express its shock at the killing of 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and stands in solidarity with the many brave teachers who risked their own lives to protect the students in their care.
These horrific events reveal the deep commitment and bravery of members of our profession under the most extreme of circumstances, and we are proud to stand with them at this terrible time.QTU, 16 Feb 2018
