OUR HISTORY

Our union’s rich 100 year legacy has included many campaigns and wins on issues like professional rates of pay, equal pay for women, fair superannuation and contemporary leave entitlements – among many other achievements.

All of these conditions have been won by the strength of our membership – by teachers, school officers and support staff in the non-government education sector joining together for fair working conditions.

Our union’s origin began as an antecedent union, the Queensland Assistant Masters’ Association in 1919. Just one year later, the Queensland Assistant Mistresses’ Association was formed.

It would not be until 1970 that the two unions merged to create the Queensland Association of Teachers in Independent Schools (QATIS).

We would later become the Queensland Independent Education Union (QIEU) and then in 2007, operational as the Independent Education Union of Australian – Queensland & Northern Territory Branch (IEUA-QNT).

While our name may have seen many iterations, our driving purpose has always remained the same: to serve as a collective force, acting in the best interest of employees in the non-government education sector – a purpose that been a story of success over the past 100 years.
