PSA Meets with Deputy Premier

26 May 2016

Today the PSA met with the Deputy Premier and Minister for the Public Sector, the Hon John Rau MP, to discuss a number of matters that impact broadly across PSA membership.


The PSA was represented by Chief Industrial Officer, Josie Barbaro and Manager, Strategy and Policy, Simon Johnson.


Key matters discussed with the Deputy Premier included:


  • Return to Work Provisions


  • Legal support for employees required to attend proceedings, including Royal Commissions


  • Determination 7: Redeployment, Retraining and Redundancy


  • Enterprise Bargaining – Wages Parity (Salaried)


  • Standardisation of employment arrangements across the Public Sector.



The PSA reiterated the importance of ensuring a whole of government approach to these matters rather than inconsistent practices by agencies in how they interpret sector wide conditions, such as Redeployment and Return to Work.
