Victorian Public Health Sector Enterprise Agreement 2021
Similarly, a specialist in political groups who makes appointments at several hospitals or public health services is entitled to a registration payment from each of the public hospitals or health services that employ them. Again, it is estimated that such a physician could receive registration payments totalling more than $3,500. 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. For the current business negotiation cycle (2015-2017), the department, in its budget modelling, referred more directly to the high staff profile of each public hospital or health service than in previous cycles, where budget modelling focused more on “whole sector profiles.” This will eliminate some of the most serious “swings and roundabouts” that could have resulted from the previous approach. However, this funding approach remains in its overall “output-based” nature. On this page, you will find copies of agreements on public sector companies for public hospitals, the public health sector and the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine. Since the annual wage increases under the proposed new enterprise agreement exceed the government`s usual wage increase of 2.5% per year, the government has agreed to provide a financing bonus equal to the difference between the annual wage increases described in the proposed new enterprise agreements and the standard rate of 2.5% per year. This additional funding will be recurrent. 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. These measures will improve job security within the VPS and provide more opportunities to advance your career, expand your qualifications and ensure that employment in the public service remains safe and flexible.
A full list of changes to the current agreement and a copy of the final agreement are attached. As soon as the new agreements come into force, public hospitals and health services will have to ensure that the 3% increase in salaries is applied from the first full pay period from 1 January 2018 to the same “basic amounts” for which the 6% increase in the “additional adjustment of the wage scale” has been applied to wages. The combination of these two increases should be not to increase the base amounts by more than 9% – that is, the two increases do not get worse. If a full-time medical specialist working in a public hospital or health service also holds a group appointment at another hospital or public health service, the physician may receive a bonus of registration from any hospital or public health service based on the doctor`s contractual periods with each employer. It goes without saying that such a doctor will receive registration payments of more than 3,500 $US. The parties have developed new enterprise agreements to reflect the agreed terms. The new enterprise agreements have a nominal expiry date of December 31, 2021.
