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. If you have any questions about the VPS contract, please email firstname.lastname@example.org (External Link). 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. There are employment contracts for all employees of the department. To access the corresponding agreement, select one of the following job categories. 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. The ministry is entering into negotiations for a new enterprise agreement covering nurses in the Primary and Secondary Program under the 2016 Department of Education and Training.
As was widely reported at the time of the vote on the VPS contract, workers will receive a pay increase of just over 8% over the four-year term of the contract, as well as related increases in benefits, with the first increases to be paid from 20 March 2020. If the agreement is approved, it will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for formal approval. Such a reassignment would be done with the agreement of the employer and the worker, rather than undertaking an unsatisfactory work process, in accordance with Clause 24. The Community and the public sector union and the state government have agreed on the Enterprise Agreement VPS 2020. This enterprise agreement applies, if approved, to ASU members working in the Ministry of Transport. 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. Take some time to review the proposed agreement before the vote. 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. A full list of changes to the current agreement and a copy of the final agreement are attached.
On 31 July 2020, the workers concerned received a communication on the rights of workers` representation with regard to the proposed Department of Education and Training (2020). Communication is a formal requirement under the Fair Work Act 2009 and specifies the right of workers to be represented by a bargaining representative in relation to the proposed agreement. In the medium term: Probation procedures need to be updated, as well as internal procedures for misconduct and performance and salary changes. This directive contains guidelines for Article 38 of the VPS Agreement, which specifies the circumstances under which the employer may influence a closure between the first working day following the first working day following the New Year`s Day, by facilitating workers` leave provisions. And as negotiations begin at VicRoads, CFA, Parks Victoria and several water agencies, the ASU will insist that they be put in place in these agreements.
