To the Premier of Queensland Annastacia Palaszczuk, Treasurer of Queensland and Industrial Relations Minister Curtis Pitt and all Members of the Queensland Parliament:
We, the undersigned, note that you have legislated to link your future wage rises to ours. You should be congratulated for taking a stand now. However we also need you to make a difference today for our long overdue need for fair pay.
In the last 3 years hard working public servants have suffered numerous attacks to our working conditions but also to our wages. We have not had wage increases that keep pace with the cost of living. Now is the time to fix it.
We want you to deliver fair pay for all, and to fix the fair pay gap now.
The former government trampled on our rights and we went without a pay-rise for over a year and then received less than politicians and less than the cost of living increases, we need you to fix the gap and pay fair.
It’s time for fair pay for all.
