Union making a difference to rates of insecure work

24 August, 2021

Our union continues our campaign on reducing insecure work in the non-government education sector, by taking on improper use of fixed-term contracts in the Queensland Catholic sector.

In the last round of collective bargaining, members not only won important protections for permanent jobs and limits on the use of fixed-term contracts, but an employer obligation to conduct annual reviews on fixed-term contracts.

The provision requires annual employer reviews of all contracts to check that all fixed-term contracts are genuine and identify those positions that should instead be made permanent.
