However, there are various agreements that apply to large swathes of the Victorian public sector. One of them is the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020. It contains information on the ranks, pay categories and other general terms of employment applicable to the relevant departments and agencies. Our clients have previously faced unfortunate uncertainty as to whether it was within the scope of the clause`s authority to arrange a result with multiple sanctions or whether the sanctions apply in a disjunkt manner, meaning that only one can be applied. In some cases, an employer may consider that more than one sanction should be applied in order to adequately remedy proven wrongdoing, without having to resort to termination of employment. For obvious reasons, it is preferable, in such cases, to make it clear that this approach is compatible with the enterprise agreement. Benefits for workers under the new enterprise agreement include annual wage increases, a new mobility premium, higher overtime rates and night work allowances, as well as more parental leave. This enterprise agreement applies, if approved, to ASU members working in the Ministry of Transport. The Community and the public sector union and the state government have agreed on the Enterprise Agreement VPS 2020. If the agreement is approved, it will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for formal approval.
The Victorian public sector offers generous benefits and opportunities to advance your career and income. For example, the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 (mentioned above) contains a grade 1 to 7 structure as well as detailed descriptors. You can read them in calendar C of the agreement. The community and public sector union and the government have agreed on a package that aims to reward you for your important work, while ensuring that public services can be made more responsive. Article 15 contains a declaration of intent that the VPS agreement must be interpreted as a whole in accordance with the principles of mobility, as well as the express obligation that the parties strive to implement the principles of mobility for the duration of the agreement. If you have any questions about the VPS contract, please email firstname.lastname@example.org (External Link). Since there are more than 1,800 employers in the entire Victorian public sector, there is not a single document that contains information on each level of employment, each wage sector or every job benefit. These will vary depending on the organization of the public sector and the enterprise agreement that covers their employees. Flexible work will be clarified and protected by the merger of all existing provisions into a specific part of the new agreement. Workers no longer have to work for 12 months before requesting flexible working time arrangements.
The parties agreed on a number of improvements to reflect the government`s commitment to promoting gender equality in the public service. These include: the number of grades and the content of the grade scripters vary according to the organisation of the public sector and the current enterprise agreement.
