The Community and Public Sector Union and the state government have united on the VPS 2020 corporate agreement. Clause 15 contains a letter of intent that the VPS agreement as a whole is to be interpreted in accordance with the mobility principles and an explicit commitment that the parties will work to operationalize the mobility principles during the term of the agreement. As widely reported at the time of the vote on the VPS agreement, employees will receive salary increases of just over 8% over the four-year period of the agreement, as well as related increases in compensation, with the first increases payable as of March 20, 2020. As there are over 1800 employers in the Victorian public sector, there is not a single document that contains information on each employment salary, salary scale or job performance. These therefore vary according to the organisation of the public sector and the company agreement that covers its employees. Although the specific benefits vary depending on the public sector organization in which you are employed and the respective company agreements, you can generally expect some benefits. See Benefits. The number of grades and the content of the grade descriptions vary depending on the organization of the public sector and its applicable corporate agreement. However, there are various agreements that apply to large parts of the Victorian public sector. One of them is the Victoria Public Service Companies Agreement 2020. It contains information on grades, salary levels and other general conditions of employment for the respective ministries and agencies. Benefits for workers under the new company agreement include annual wage increases, a new mobility payment, higher overtime rates and night pay, as well as more parental leave.
Take the time to review the proposed agreement before the vote. Flexible working will be clarified and protected by combining all existing agreements into a special part of the new agreement. Employees no longer have to work 12 months before requesting flexible work arrangements. The community and public sector union and the government have come together on a package of measures to reward you for the important work you do, while ensuring that public services can be delivered in a more responsive manner. 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. In some cases, an employer may consider it appropriate to apply more than one sanction to appropriately address proven misconduct without having to resort to termination of the employment relationship. For obvious reasons, it is preferable, in such cases, that it be clear that this approach is compatible with the company agreement. . . .
