Qld teachers reject pay offer: union

Teachers have rejected the Queensland government’s latest pay offer, their union says.

Teachers had been offered an annual increase of 2.7 per cent for the next three years.

But the Queensland Teachers’ Union has knocked back the offer, saying it’s unhappy with proposed pay progression arrangements.

In a statement to members on Thursday, the union said the education department had refused to include policy issues, such as class sizes and workload management, in the bargaining mix.

The QTU will seek to resume negotiations on Tuesday, the statement said.

But the union is also planning an after-school hours rally for the following week, and has urged members to contact MPs about the deal.

“It is a fair offer in the current economic climate, particular given the job security that teachers enjoy,” Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek said.

The Queensland government would continue to negotiate with the unions in good faith.
