Victorian Public Service Enterprise Bargaining Agreement 2016

Mobility is an essential feature of the new VPS agreement. Mobility`s stated goal is to facilitate the continued employment of employees who can be employed in different locations and roles within the VPS in order to meet changing utility requirements. 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 number of grades and the content of the notes vary depending on the public sector organization and their applicable company agreement. Since there are more than 1800 employers in the Victorian public sector, there is no document containing information on every remuneration, salary bracket or employment benefit. These therefore vary according to the organisation of the public sector and the company agreement that covers their employees. Our clients have previously considered the unfortunate uncertainty as to whether it is the power to achieve a result of multiple sanctions by the clause or whether the sanctions apply disjunctively, meaning that only one can be applied.

However, there are various agreements that apply to a large part of the Victorian public sector. One of them is the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020. It contains information on grades, steps and other general conditions of employment for the services and agencies concerned.

The clauses on work performance and unsatisfactory faults remain substantially unchanged from the well-known content of clauses 20 and 21 of the 2016 agreement. There are, however, a few changes worth mentioning: as of today, the new Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 (VPS Agreement) is in operation, with a nominal expiration date of March 20, 2024. It will cover most non-executive VPS employees and replace the existing terms of employment contained in the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2016 (2016 Agreement). Based on an organization`s rating, a salary range is used. This range of remuneration reflects the level of skills and competencies required for the job. The salaries that apply to a given role are listed in the current company agreement. Some clients may have encountered a problem with the existing clause 21.12(b) of the 2016 agreement with respect to disciplinary outcomes which states that “. the possible disciplinary outcomes are: … “, and then lists a serious number of available sanctions, separated by the word “or”.. . . .
