This agreement has been extended until 31 July 2019 only for current participants. At this time, districts or schools that have not yet participated cannot participate. l Wage increase of 2.5 per cent per year, as of mid-2015. This rate would increase to match the percentage of a larger increase given to public sector teachers in their next EB agreement. Lee-Anne Perry, chief executive of the Queensland Catholic Education Commission, said the agreement in principle reached through discussion in the Fair Work Commission “is a fair outcome for our staff who provide excellent learning opportunities for young Queenslanders in Catholic schools”. Dr. Perry said a vote on ratifying the agreement would take place early in item 3. The agreement lasted for months of negotiations and included industrial action in parts of the state, as well as a full-day strike by some workers. “The agreement in principle is a good result for all those involved in Catholic education, and we hope that collaborators will support it through voting.” The basic operating contract extends over the next four years.
