CAA - Implementation of ECMS in Probate Registry

29 November 2018

The Principal Registrar of Higher Courts has invited the Public Service Association (PSA) to provide feedback about the impending roll out of ECMS in Probate. Advice from the Principal Registrar is that consultation will be open until 13 December 2018.

Under the South Australian Modern Public Service Enterprise Agreement: Salaried 2017, any proposal for change is subject to consultation.


34.1 The parties commit to the following consultative principles.

34.1.1 Consultation involves the sharing of information and the exchange of views between
employers and persons or bodies that must be consulted and the genuine opportunity for
them to contribute effectively to any decision making process. This includes consultation
with the applicable union whose members are affected.

34.1.2 Employers and Agencies consult in good faith, not simply advise what will be done.

34.1.3 It is an accepted principle that effective workplace relationships can only be achieved if
appropriate consultation between the parties occurs on a regular basis.

34.1.4 Workplace change, including any restructure/reorganisation (however described) that will
affect employees should not be implemented before appropriate consultation has occurred
with employee representatives.

34.1.5 Employee representatives will be given the opportunity to adequately consult with the
people they represent in the workplace, in relation to any proposed changes that may
affect employees’ working conditions or the services employees provide.

Please forward any comments or questions by email or to PSA at
