The Australian Salaried Medical Officers' Federation Queensland (ASMOFQ) has secured a 2.5 per cent pay increase for Queensland Health VMOs.
The expected payment date is 28 September and the increase will be back paid to 1 September 2021.
ASMOFQ has worked hard to secure this pay increase and ensure VMOs receive similar benefits to all medical officers. Only last month, VMOs gained access to the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC) as an important option to resolve workplace disputes. Furthermore, VMOs will be included under the upcoming MOCA 6 (Medical Officers' Certified Agreement 6), to be negotiated in 2022.
When VMOs join AMA Queensland, they also become members of ASMOFQ at no extra cost.
ASMOFQ is AMA Queensland's industrial relations partner and is the doctors' union in Queensland - run by doctors, for doctors. ASMOFQ supports doctors by representing them in individual workplace matters and disputes, advocating on health and safety issues and also collectively negotiating the employment contracts of thousands of Queensland doctors through certified enterprise agreements.
With major changes continually occurring throughout Queensland, it is important to have ASMOFQ representing your rights at work and your entitlements.
