Big pay rises are due this week for Health Professionals at Healthscope and South East Palliative Care (SEPC).
Health Professionals (HPs) can expect lump sums ranging upwards from $1,800 to more than $5,000 in their next pay packet now that new Enterprise Agreements have been finalised for both of these employers.
The Healthscope Enterprise Agreement delivers HPs a total pay rise of 8.75%. This is 1.25% better than management’s original proposal and will deliver the average full time Health Professional (Grade 2, year 5) a salary increase of $6,600 over the life of the Agreement.
The VHPA achieved an even better result with the SEPC Enterprise Agreement. SEPC Health Professionals will get around $5,900 in back pay and a lump sum now that the Fair Work Commission has approved the Agreement.
The SEPC Agreement also provides for improved compassionate leave, union delegate leave; and better entitlements around sick leave, consultation, dispute resolution and a grading review.
