The Queensland Labor Caucus has voted against supporting the politician pay rise set by the independent remuneration tribunal.

Instead, it is calling on the LNP to use its to majority “fix” the “mess”.

In a statement released after Friday's meeting, Opposition leader Annastacia Palaszczuk said Premier Campbell Newman needed to address the issue at the next cabinet meeting, by considering “urgent legislation to scrap this determination and ask the Tribunal to revisit its decision”.

“That legislation should contain Labor Party amendments to ensure increases reflect those for public sector employees under their core agreement,” she said.

“If the Newman Cabinet does not act on Monday, Labor MPs are committed to ensuring this money supports their communities and helps fight the LNP's cuts.”

Ms Palaszczuk was due to receive about an $80,000 pay rise due to her position as opposition leader, while salaries of the remaining seven Labor MPs were all due an increase because of their committee roles.

Standing premier Campbell Newman is in line for a $70,000 pay rise.

Earlier on Friday, Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie said interfering with the decision handed down by the tribunal on Thursday would impede its independence.

“It is not what I think, or whether I think it's worth it,” he said.

“The point is, the independent tribunal handed down the decision and the people will, in the next 12 months, be going to an election in March 2015 with our good policies and how our policies over the last two years have benefited the state of Queensland, turning the economy of Queensland around, paying down debt.

"That is the message we'll be giving for the next 12 months.

“Then the people ultimately will be the judge in March 2015.”

Cabinet will meet on Monday.
