Voting closes in EB10 employer ballot
The department’s EB10 ballot, which is currently being conducted electronically, closes at midnight on Tuesday (tomorrow).
As a department employee, by now you should have received an email from CorpVote with information about how to vote electronically in the departmental ballot.
If you have not or you have any questions or issues with voting electronically, please call the DoE support line on 1300 710 950 or email the DoE support team at firstname.lastname@example.org
The QTU has also created a suite of materials to assist members in understanding the offer. These, along with a copy of the draft agreement, can be found on our dedicated EB10 webpage at www.qtu.asn.au/eb10
What happens next?
The department is required under law to conduct a ballot of employees to ascertain their support for the offer. It is important that members take the opportunity to vote in favour of the offer so that it can be progressed to certification.
If the agreement is accepted by employees, it will be lodged with the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC), allowing back pay and salary increases to be paid and the new conditions to be implemented.
The department has advised the QTU that, pending certification, it will endeavour to ensure that the back pay of salary increases does not occur during the holiday leave loading pay periods.
