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. However, there are various agreements that apply to large swathes of the Victorian public sector. One of them is the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020. It contains information on the ranks, pay categories and other general terms of employment applicable to the relevant departments and agencies. Although specific services vary depending on the public sector organization you work in and the enterprise agreements, you can generally expect some benefits. See staff benefits. Each job description published on this site contains the rank, the remuneration area and the benefits of the individual transaction. Since there are more than 1,800 employers in the entire Victorian public sector, there is not a single document that contains information on each level of employment, each wage sector or every job benefit. These will vary depending on the organization of the public sector and the enterprise agreement that covers their employees. 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. A full list of changes to the current agreement and a copy of the final agreement are attached.
If the agreement is approved, it will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for formal approval. The number of grades and the content of the grade scripters vary depending on the public sector organization and the current enterprise agreement. For example, the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 (mentioned above) contains a grade 1 to 7 structure as well as detailed descriptors. You can read them in calendar C of the agreement. 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. On the basis of the rank of a job, a salary band is applied. This salary category reflects the level of skills and skills required for the job.
