    <br>Queensland teachers are set to vote on a state government offer of a four per cent pay rise in the current financial year after nearly six months of negotiations.<br> <br>The government and the Queensland Teachers Union have met regularly in recent months for wage talks.<br> <br>More than 63,600 public school teachers have been offered a four per cent pay rise this financial year, which is more than the three per cent offered to their NSW counterparts.<br> <br>Queensland teachers’ wages are set to increase by four per cent next financial year, then three per cent the following year.<br> <br>Last month teachers walked off the job in NSW in protest against a proposed 6.5 per cent hike over the next three years.<br> <br>Queensland Situs Judi Slot Teachers Union general secretary Kate Ruttiman says when voting on the enterprise bargaining (EB) agreement her members should consider the union’s priorities.<br> <br>These include Queensland teachers being among the highest paid in the country, addressing cost-of-living pressures, attracting and retaining teachers particularly in regions, and how their workloads will increase.<br> <br>”You’re not going to get a change to the way your workload continues to increase until we actually get the opportunity to look at the resources that are in your school, and the duties that you’re expected to undertake aligned to those particular resources,” Ms Ruttiman said.<br> <br>”So one of our core interests during EB negotiations has been to secure a review of what we colloquially refer to as the allocated methodology.”<br> <br>Education Minister Grace Grace said part of the offer put to the QTU includes an incentive to attract and keep teachers in regional areas.<br> <br>”We’re open to anything and I know we’ve also had broad regional incentives for workers to come to Queensland and to work,” Ms Grace said.<br> <br>”So they are something we need to monitor, but it’s included in the bargaining and there’ll be more news as soon as we know the outcome of that bargaining agreement with the Queensland Teachers Union.”<br>
