Your new Agreement has been registered!
The innovative, ground-breaking conditions won in this campaign will not only improve the lives of public sector workers in the short term but will also contribute to breaking down inequality in our workplaces and society in the longer term.
This has been a long process but the conditions secured in this agreement are significant and will help public sector workers have better lives for years to come.
Our next round of bargaining will start in Spring 2020, where we will join with other public sector Unions to leverage all political parties to change the Wages Policy.
