If you have any questions about the VPS contract, please email firstname.lastname@example.org (External Link). The Community and the public sector union and the state government have agreed on the Enterprise Agreement VPS 2020. Mobility is an essential feature of the new VPS agreement. Mobility`s stated objective is to facilitate on-the-go employment, which can be deployed at various sites and roles in the VPS to meet changing utility requirements. These new provisions set a precedent that should spread to other agreements within the broader public sector. Such a reassignment would be done with the agreement of the employer and the worker, rather than undertaking an unsatisfactory work process, in accordance with Clause 24. 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. Take some time to review the proposed agreement before the vote. The parties agreed on a number of improvements to reflect the government`s commitment to promoting gender equality in the public service. These measures will help improve job security within the VPS and provide more opportunities to advance your career, expand your qualifications and ensure that employment in the public service remains safe and flexible. This enterprise agreement applies, if approved, to ASU members working in the Ministry of Transport.
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. Article 15 contains a declaration of intent that the VPS agreement must be interpreted as a whole in accordance with the principles of mobility, as well as the express obligation that the parties strive to implement the principles of mobility for the duration of the agreement. If the agreement is approved, it will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for formal approval. 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.
