Catholic employers fail to listen

17 October, 2023

Queensland Catholic school employers have shamefully failed to hear members’ concerns and are essentially putting the same document that IEU members first rejected in October to a second ballot. 

IEU-QNT Branch Secretary Terry Burke said after employees in nearly 300 Queensland Catholic Diocesan schools rejected an employer-proposed collective agreement at ballot last month, the Diocesan employers should have come back to the negotiating table . 

“They did not do so,” he said. 

In the five Dioceses (Brisbane, Cairns, Rockhampton, Toowoomba and Townsville), 51 per cent of voters rejected the agreement.
