CODE 2, VOL 31, NO 20 : 24 may 2017

CA 16 – Update: Agreement certification hearing date

As reported to you last week, QFES lodged the CA16 application for certification with the QIRC on Thursday 18 May 2017.

On Wednesday 24 May 2017 your union received notification from the QIRC Registry that the matter has now been listed, and will be heard before the QIRC on Wednesday 31 May 2017.

I expect that the QIRC will provide a commencement date from which the new agreement will apply, which is likely to be on or soon after the date of the hearing, and terminate the current Queensland Fire and Emergency Services – Determination 2013 and all previous non-applicable certified agreements.

I will report back to you after the hearing date on 31 May 2017.
