How and why the QTU campaigns
QTU members, with help from their Union, have scored some big wins for fair resourcing and funding for state schools, with flow-on benefits for the whole public education system.
Members play a vital role in letting the QTU know about problems in the workplace.
When these problems are shared across schools or threaten the safety of teachers and students, it’s time for action. Members are alerted to emerging issues by Newsflashes sent to their principal and school rep.
To solve problems, the QTU first negotiates with the State and Federal Governments.
If negotiations are blocked, then the QTU increases lobbying pressure by highlighting issues to the media.
As a last resort, members at individual schools can vote to take industrial action including stop-work meetings and strikes.
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
