PUBLIC SECTOR PAY DEAL: VOTE YES SUPERVISORS

WHAT IS THE PUBLIC SECTOR AGREEMENT?

You are employed under the VICTORIAN PUBLIC HEALTH SECTOR (HEALTH AND ALLIED SERVICES, MANAGERS AND ADMINISTRATIVE WORKERS) SINGLE INTEREST ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT. This (Public Sector) Agreement determines your pay and conditions.

The Health Workers Union (HWU) is YOUR union. The HWU has worked hard to negotiate your new Agreement with your employers representative, the Victorian Hospital Industry Association (VHIA), as well as the Victorian Government. 

The HWU is the only union in Victoria that covers your classification. As an employee covered by this Agreement, your employer recommends the HWU as the only union for you.  You can join the HWU today by going to www.hwu.org.au/join-our-union or calling (03) 9341 3300 between 8.30am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday. If you have any questions, you can also email info@hwu.org.au.

VOTE YES FOR THE NEW AGREEMENT

Great news! The HWU is pleased to announce that your next Public Sector Agreement has now been officially approved by the Victorian Government. This Agreement will determine your pay and conditions for the next four years. (See below for official coverage dates). 

There is now a clear timeline for your new Agreement to be approved and for its benefits to start flowing through to you. Dates have now been set to vote on the new Agreement.

In order for pay increases and other benefits within this Agreement to pass through from your employer to you, the Agreement must first be approved by the Fair Work Commission. Once this occurs, the Agreement becomes law. Your employer must pass on the pay increases and conditions within the document. 

In order for the Fair Work Commission to approve the Agreement, a vote must first be taken by ALL employees affected by the Agreement. You are entitled to vote. 

For the vote to be successful, over 50% of affected employees must vote in favour of the new Agreement. Once the Fair Work Commission formally approves your new Agreement - things like pay increases and bonuses – will begin to flow through to you. If the vote is unsuccessful, you will not receive this.

The HWU strongly encourages ALL public sector employees to vote YES for the new agreement.

Your employer will send you more detailed information about how to cast your vote for the new Agreement.
