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. 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. The number of grades and the content of the grade scripters vary depending on the public sector organization and the current enterprise agreement. The types of enterprise agreements are governed by Division 2, Part 2-4 of the FW Act. There are three types of enterprise agreements that can be concluded: enterprise agreements, multi-company agreements and green grassland agreements. The Victorian public sector offers generous benefits and opportunities to advance your career and income.
Major enterprise agreements are with large public sector staff, such as public services, nurses, doctors, health professionals and administrators, teachers, the police and some emergency services, with a salary base of more than $1 billion. All other agreements are considered non-major enterprise agreements. 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. Take some time to review the proposed agreement before the vote. If the agreement is approved, it will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for formal approval. The adoption of changing priorities is essential to creating a safe and flexible employment environment in the public service. The parties recognized the importance of ensuring that employees could be used reactively to support government priorities.
