Queensland teachers and principals re-engineered education delivery from classroom-based delivery to remote learning, virtually or by paper with little notice over five pupil-free days at the end of term 1, plus additional work during the Easter school vacation.
Anyone with any understanding of teaching and the operations of schools would recognise this as an amazing professional feat, especially given the limitations of time, resources, and experience in remote teaching.
That’s why QTU General Secretary Graham Moloney wrote to the Premier on 14 May 2020 stating that the proposed pay freeze is not justified morally, industrially or economically. The letter is published on our website: https://www.qtu.asn.au/lettertopremier14may2020
Disappointingly, we have yet to receive a response from the Premier’s Office. We believe our members deserve better than this.
