On 3 February 2017, TIQ became a declared Public Service Office under the Public Service Act 2008 and now formally applies the relevant Queensland Government Public Service Commission directives.
TIQ is working with the Office of Industrial Relations (OIR) to become party to the Queensland Public Service Officers and Other Employees Award – State 2015, which will further align TIQ’s employment framework with the whole of government.
Bargaining for the new Queensland Government Entities Certified Agreement has commenced. TIQ will continue to be party to this agreement and OIR is coordinating the bargaining process on behalf of the relevant Queensland Government agencies, including TIQ. TIQ has strengthened employee communication and consultative forums during the reporting period.
