If you wish to appoint someone, including yourself, as an independent representative of the negotiations, send the name, title and contact information of your designated independent negotiator in writing, with your signature and the date EnterpriseAgreement@easternhealth.org.au, so that we can ensure that the named person is involved in the negotiation meetings. You can name yourself if you wish. “Enterprise agreements” (or enterprise bargaining agreements) are enterprise-level agreements between the employer and the worker on the terms of employment. While each Victorian public health service is a full-fledged employer, many groups of workers (for example. B Nurses and midwives or doctors) have negotiations on businesses across the country, with the support of the Victorian hospital industry with the relevant unions. Once the proposed agreements have been developed, the Department of Health and Human Services will present the proposed agreements for final government approval before a worker vote is held in accordance with the Fair Work Act. Any changes to the current rules will be implemented as soon as possible. The contracting parties to this agreement agree to meet as soon as possible in order to reach a final agreement by 12 January 2018. The more members there are, the more we can defend your rights. Help improve working conditions in public hospitals by discussing membership with your non-member colleagues. The next step is to ensure full implementation of all agreed outcomes.
This requires that the members of each site keep us informed of the progress made. So make sure your colleagues are members. Keep an eye on your emails to get the latest information on your business agreement. All staff will have the opportunity to vote on the final agreement, whether or not you have appointed a representative. The terms and conditions of employment of Victorian public health workers are generally set in collective bargaining.
