Victorian Public Health Enterprise Agreement

The adoption of changing priorities is essential for the creation of a secure and flexible employment framework in the public service. The parties recognized the importance of ensuring that employees can be deployed in a reactive manner to support government priorities. The terms and conditions of employment of Victorian public health employees are generally determined through collective bargaining. Corporate negotiations in the Victorian public sector are conducted within the Federal Jurisdiction for Industrial Relations and in accordance with the Fair Work Act 2009. Negotiations in the public sector in the Victorian sector are also conducted within the framework of the Victorian Government`s labour relations policy. “Company agreements” (or company agreements) are agreements concluded at company level between employers and workers on working and employment conditions. Victoria`s public health sector employs more than 80,000 full-time equivalents. These include doctors, nurses and midwives, health scientists, mental health nurses, technicians, administrative and office staff, engineers, caterers, cleaners, gardeners and a number of other workers at more than a hundred sites across the state. On this page you will find copies of public sector company agreements – for public hospitals, the local health sector and the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine. While every Victorian public health service is a full-fledged employer, many groups of workers (e.g.B. Nurses and midwives or health professionals) conducted the negotiations on the companies on a national basis, with the support of the health services industry representative (victorian Hospitals Industrial Association) with the relevant unions.

The parties to the agreement have committed to implementing changes in the way the Victorian government works and provides services by agreeing on the principles of “labour mobility”. The principles recognise that the services required by the Community of a modern public service are not static; They change all the time. The Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 was formally approved by the Fair Work Commission on 2 October 2020 and put into operation on 9 October 2020.
