Teachers campaigning in Queensland Teachers in Queensland, Australia are to strike in October against changes to their conditions and low pay The teachers are campaigning against a pay offer of 2.7% and against changes to their conditions of service which would include the ending of class size limits. In an era of cuts this can only mean increasing class sizes. Union leaders say that there is a shortfall of 600 teachers to meet the growing numbers of students. Teachers in Queensland join the teachers in the states of Victoria and New South Wales who are also in the middle of campaigns against cuts.
