Enterprise Agreement Update 1 August 2018
1 August, 2018
AMA Victoria is pleased to announce that the Fair Work Commission has approved the new Enterprise Agreements for both Medical Specialists and Doctors in Training.
The new Agreements were certified on Tuesday 31 July 2018 and come into force 7 days later.
Both agreements can be viewed below:
Doctors in Training Agreement
Medical Specialists Agreement
23 July, 2018
AMA / ASMOF met with the government and VHIA on 19 July to discuss outstanding issues with the new Enterprise Agreements.
The issues were to do with typos in shift penalty schedules of the Specialists Agreement and the incorrect application of increases to shift penalties in the Doctors in Training Agreement. Neither will have an effect on the application of the agreements.
Both parties attended a conference at Fair Work on 23 July to answer the commission's questions regarding the agreements.
As both AMA / ASMOF and VHIA agreed on the response, we do not expect there will be any further delay in the approval process.
We anticipate that the agreements will be approved in the next week.
The agreements become enforceable 7 days after they have been approved.
