The DET State School Teachers' Certified Agreement 2016 expires in
Every three years the QTU has the opportunity to negotiate a new industrial agreement with the state government to improve the working conditions and salaries of our members.
This year members are committed to see the government deliver its commitment (from the 2016 agreement) for: a new classification structure for our school leaders and heads of program members (and the salaries that go with it); more measures to address the increasing workloads of members; and measures to address the rising gender employment equity in education.
