Together in the Department of Children, Youth Justice & Multicultural Affairs

Workers in the Department of Children, Youth Justice & Multicultural Affairs (CYJMA) have an important and challenging role in working with some of the most at-risk children, young people and families across Queensland.

CYJMA members have recently accepted an offer from government regarding their wages and conditions. You can see more detail here.
