Enterprise Bargaining update – get ready to vote
20 February 2018
AMA Victoria has worked with the Victorian Hospitals’ Industrial Association (VHIA) and the Department of Health and Human Services to finalise two draft Enterprise Bargaining Agreements. The State Government supported the drafts for ballot. All public hospital doctors will be provided with access to the draft Agreement applying to you in the coming weeks, along with the opportunity to vote in the ballot mid-March.
AMA Victoria, along with ASMOF Victorian Branch, has worked hard to negotiate these outcomes and is recommending you vote YES to the agreements. It is imperative that you cast a vote as the Agreements will only be approved to apply at your hospital if the majority that vote, vote in favour.
If the ballot is successful, the two Agreements will be lodged with the Fair Work Commission for approval. Once approved they become law and must be implemented with back-pay to the first full pay period of 2018.
You must vote. Don’t just leave it to your colleagues to support the Agreement.
