Department Of Human Service Enterprise Agreement

“Of the 77.29% of voters who voted, 71.09% voted for the agreement.” Staff will receive a 3 per cent increase when the three-year contract comes into effect, with most current staffing rights maintained. Department of Human Services employees this week ended their more than three-year-old collective dispute, in which 70 percent voted in favor of a new agreement. A spokeswoman said the department would commit to the agreement being approved by the Fair Work Commission. Employees of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority also agreed this week to a new enterprise agreement. “Agreements reached during the initial phase of the round of negotiations will expire by mid-2018. This means that the staff and agencies involved will consider negotiating the next enterprise agreement in the near future. “I encourage the parties still in negotiation to move forward pragmatically to conclude new agreements,” Lloyd said. “DHS management finally understood that maintaining rights and conditions in the workplace was the key to the settlement, and as a result, the CPSU was not against this agreement.” The agreement ends a series of rolling strikes by DHS staff, but the government is not yet in favor of an enterprise agreement with agencies, including the Bureau of Meteorology and federal courts. Nadine Flood, Secretary of State for KPdSU, said the DHS result was the government`s “categorical rejection of previous treaty proposals.” “This new agreement is much better than the one that was rejected before, although it still falls short of what the hard-working employees of Centrelink, Medicare and Child Support earn, especially since there is no compensation without a pay increase for more than four years.” The parties to the agreement committed to implementing changes in the operation and provision of services by the Victorian government by adopting the principles of “labour mobility.” The principles recognize that the services required by the community of a modern public service are not static; they change all the time. “The department has negotiated in good faith over the past three years to conclude a new agreement and we are pleased that our staff voted to adopt the proposed agreement,” she said.

The adoption of changing priorities is essential to creating a safe and flexible employment environment in the public service. The parties recognized the importance of ensuring that employees could be used reactively to support government priorities. Mr Lloyd said 123 new agreements had been reached in the current round of negotiations, while only 2.6% of Australian officials were in negotiations. An agreement for immigration and on-board force workers has been granted an arbitration tribunal. In November 2016, 74% of workers voted `no`, after a `no` vote of 79% in February and a `no` vote of 87% in September 2015. The Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 was officially approved by the Fair Labour Commission on October 2, 2020 and began its work on October 9, 2020.

Workers receive a mobility bonus, which must be paid as an annual package, in recognition of their continued commitment to these new ways of working.

The Community and the public sector union welcomed this progress and called it the end of a long-standing struggle to protect rights and critical conditions in the workplace.
