national wage adjustment - wages matter

Wages Matter!

The cost of living is continuing to go up. Workers' wages need to keep pace.

Make the pledge and join the campaign for better wages!

Cost of living increase is now 6%!

Wherever you go people are talking about it: The cost of living is continuing to go up. Workers' wages need to keep pace.

The ABS have released figures that show that inflation is at 6% in Brisbane (5.1% for all of Australia) and it is confirmation that the cost of living is outpacing our wages.

This year, workers in the public and private sectors will be campaigning for fair wage increases with a simple message that wage increases must at least match the increases in the cost of living.

Workers in Education, Health, TAFE, WorkCover and Transport and Main Roads are working together to improve their wages - will you be part of this change?

Will you join us and pledge to improve wages in your workplace?

We can only win better wages if you and your colleagues pledge to be part of the campaign and work together for better wages.

We know that working together is our best chance to win better wages. By making the pledge, you are joining thousands of workers across Queensland who are passionate about better workplaces and better wages.

So make the pledge today and join the campaign for better wages.
