Catholic teachers in Rockhampton are fed up with inequality

ROCKHAMPTON Catholic school teachers and their Queensland colleagues are fed up with not being heard and actioned a strike for the fifth time yesterday.

Educators working for Catholic Education Queensland are being paid nearly $7000 less than their New South Wales counterparts of the same skill level.

Angry teachers marched out of classrooms at 8.30am yesterday and didn't return until 10.30am, interrupting scheduled classes in efforts to renegotiate the Enterprise Bargaining Agreement which hasn't been changed since 1992.

Independent Education Union of Australia Queensland and Northern Territory branch secretary Terry Burke said teachers were being treated unfairly.
