The Health Professionals Public Sector Agreement was lodged with the Fair Work Commission on 28 December 2016.
To date we have not received notification of a listing date for Fair Work however as soon as we do we will notify VAHPA Members via Facebook and our e-New facility.
There is currently a substantial backlog of Agreements and there is no prescribed timeframe for these to be processed.
Public Sector Employers have been authorised to pay the back pay and pay rise however they are unable to do this until the VHIA provide them with a Salary Circular regarding this. We have been advised that they anticipated this some weeks ago but have not yet received it.
The VAHPA Organising Team have been rolling out a series of “Know Your Entitlement” Lunch and Learn sessions around various elements of the new Agreement. If you are interested in having one in your workplace, please contact VAHPA on 1300 322 917 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
