For the information of QTU members in promotional positions. Please ensure that this email is forwarded to anyone who has been performing higher duties this year.
Higher duties resolved
The QTU has been successful in resolving the issues around higher duties, which were not being paid to teachers performing higher duties over the Winter school vacation period this year, if the teacher had been performing these duties for less than 12 months.
Since this issue arose near the end of term two, the QTU has been relentlessly seeking a resolution for our members.
This win means that all teachers performing higher duties (whether as a head of program, deputy principal or principal) will receive higher duties during the forthcoming vacation.
The department’s payroll team has commenced making the necessary payments and adjustments to employees who have undertaken, or will be undertaking, higher duties during the 2018 winter and spring vacations. These payments and adjustments will be made over the next two pay fortnights in pays scheduled for 26 September and 10 October 2018.
Members with any queries about higher duties can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call QTAD on 1300 117 823.
