Over 4000 Independent Education Union - Queensland and Northern Territory (IEU-QNT) 3 mins read

Over 4000 Independent Education Union – Queensland and Northern Territory (IEU-QNT) members across 106 Queensland Catholic schools are taking strike action tomorrow (Wednesday, 23 August) for one (1) hour between 10am until 11am.


IEU-QNT Branch Secretary Terry Burke said employees had no choice but to take strike action.


“Queensland Catholic school employers have failed to take the steps needed to protect working and learning conditions in their schools,” Mr Burke said.


“We have a workload crisis in our schools that needs to be addressed.


“Meanwhile, support staff in Queensland Catholic schools are still paid outdated and unfair wage rates.


“There are some significant challenges facing Queensland Catholic schools which have major impacts on staff and students.


“Our members are taking this action to raise the alarm that things need to change – it’s time the employers heard our voice,” Mr Burke said.
