At a recent visit to Brisbane’s Bayside State College, United Voice delegates and officers heard from members about the importance of having secure, stable hours and permanent work.
One member had been living from contract to contract for the past four years, unable to plan for her future or have any certainty about her hours or pay.
Members were given support and resources to apply to transfer from temporary contracts to permanent roles.
Thanks to this support, local delegates at Bayside State College have just reported back that four teacher aides at the school were successfully able to transfer from contracts into permanent roles.
Empowering workers to win secure and stable jobs they can count on is what being a union member is all about!
