Enterprise Bargaining General Meeting Held

03 March 2017

Another Enterprise Bargaining General Meeting was held today. The meeting involved the government and all representatives.

The PSA was represented by Strategic Adviser David Stevens, Senior Industrial Officer Austin White and Project Officer Andre Wise.

The government confirmed it will continue to pursue changes to consultation and grievance resolution processes. At the previous meeting the PSA resoundingly rejected the government's proposed draft clauses because they would weaken the protection of members' conditions. The PSA will be pursuing strong and clear protections for members in all areas, including consultation and dispute resolution.

The government also indicated it would raise issues relating to a career structure review. The PSA will consider all proposals. However the PSA has made it very clear in negotiations that we are seeking improvements to members' conditions and protections and will not entertain proposals that would reduce any conditions or protections.

The government also introduced a list of specific agency issues. These will be discussed in coming meetings with government and the respective agencies.

The PSA confirmed again it does not accept the limitation of a 1.5% for a wage rise.

The PSA also confirmed that it was progressing the work of reviewing the current agreement and drafting our proposals. These will be tabled when they have been endorsed through our representative membership processes.

The next Enterprise Bargaining General Meeting is scheduled for Monday 3 April 2017.
