Negotiations for an enterprise agreement for Marina Radiology employees have just begun, the first round of negotiations will take place on July 5, the next one will take place soon on August 2. BreastScreen Victoria has proposed a number of changes to the proposed enterprise agreement, some positive, many negative. They also accepted some VAHPA applications, but not most of them. Recently, they have put on the table an offer of wages, although this unfortunately provides for wage increases of less than 2% per year. Any enterprise agreement requires job Rep and members` meetings to develop the minutes of claims and discuss negotiations. A damage protocol is a list of improvements – for example, salary increases, improvements in professional development leave or better staffing that members want in their next agreement. ANMF industrial agents, organizers, elected officials and sometimes also employment representatives will negotiate new agreements with employers. Workers are invited to vote on the agreement just before their presentation to the Fair Work Commission. Here is a snapshot (not all) of the number and types of enterprise agreements that ANMF negotiates. Healthe Care`s VAHPA members conducted a close campaign during which, shortly before Christmas 2016, a request for fair work and the launch of union actions in January 2017 were presented. This has led to an improvement in the supply of health care management, advocated by AAPA members. In 2018, business agreements have been renegotiated for 359 jobs and another 187 are expected to be renegotiated in 2019. The final agreement included the inclusion of the CPD allowance in the salaries of Allied Health and Customer Service Operator employees, with wage increases applied: 2.25% from the start of the EA and 2.75% from 1 July 2017.
With the expiration, in nominal terms, of the agreement on the Community health sector more than a year ago, on 30 June 2016, measures to improve the salaries and conditions of allied health professionals in the community health sector and the well-being of the sector as a whole are beginning to begin. The “Community Health Advocacy” campaign is being introduced in all self-governing community health centres, which raise not only the issue of the wages and conditions of allied health professions, but also the survival of community health as a vital sector of health in Victoria, according to egalitarian principles. The actions taken by AAAP members successfully rejected the idea that the work of persons with disabilities was worth less than the work of people working in the public and/or public health and/or municipal sectors, by defending existing conditions and improving conditions. The new agreement came into force on April 12 and includes seminar leave, freedom aid, relocation assistance and family leave. Wage increases improved by 2.5% over Yooralla`s initial offer and followed the public health sector, including 2.5% for the first six months, 0.75% for the second six months and 3.25% for the second year, with additional increases of $17 per week for the highest level of each class. Negotiations for a new enterprise agreement for employees, including Allied Health Professionals, at BreastScreen Victoria began earlier this year. At present, no significant progress has been made. The new agreement finally came into force on May 3, 2017 and many employers made the refund available shortly before that date. The hard-won agreement has brought many improvements, including: after long and long negotiations in which members voted for the initial agreement before Christmas, a revised agreement was approved by members, which provides for the introduction of Class 2, Year 5, and a clause allowing the padding of holidays in the future and annual wage increases of 3%. Negotiations on the new agreement combining the AHP and the nurses were concluded in 2016.
