Disability Services Officers - Weekly Paid Enterprise Agreement 2017

03 November 2017

The Public Service Association (PSA) has received an offer from the Department of the Premier and Cabinet for increases to wages effective from 1 July 2017, 1 July 2018 and 1 July 2019. These are as detailed in the letter and the salary schedule for Disability Services Officers which can be found below.

The offer includes a wage increase of a minimum $28.75 per week or 3%, which ever is the greater as per the salary schedule.

You will note in the letter that it is proposed to include clauses for Disability Services Officers for paid meal breaks, Senior First Aid Certificate and a Multi-site Allowance. These clauses are yet to be developed.

The next Enterprise Bargaining Committee meeting is scheduled for Thursday 9 November 2017, where the Government offer will be formally discussed.

A draft 2017 Enterprise Agreement (EA) will then be developed. This draft EA will be sent out to all employees under the EA to vote on. If the EA is agreed to by employees it is then certified in the South Australian Employment Tribunal. Following these processes, the salary schedule is then applied which will result in employees receiving back pay to 1 July 2017.
