The matter was discussed at the conference before a new Fair Labour Commissioner, Vice-President Young, on Thursday, February 6, where the parties will keep the Commissioner informed of the matter and the progress made on issues raised since the last conciliation hearing. The parties are likely to try to reach agreement on a conciliation timetable. As you may know, AMA Victoria took an unusual step in August to resolve a dispute with each health service covered by the AMA Specialist Enterprise Agreement. This action was taken after a year of frustration at the lack of progress in the implementation of new clauses in the agreement and after a long dispute over the interpretation of long-term vacation rights. It was also an attempt to unite all parties to the agreement with the outcome of the disputes. 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. 2020 – Year 2 – Health Service Physician Years 1- 6 250.335 – 315,611 USD p.a. (including basic salary 200.641 USD – 260,254 USD p.a., free supplement 30,633 USD p.a.
and 9.50% employer supernuation contributions). Travel on demand at $51,593 – $66,922 p.a. and additional district allowance. New premium rates apply for 2020. „All of the AV-Health`s industrial agreements have been and are still being negotiated in accordance with the government`s public sector wage policy, which provides for wage increases of $1,000 per year,“ he said. „This policy will focus on the negotiations that will begin with WADA AV for the physician replacement contract.“ There have been problems with typos in the Specialists Agreement`s post penalty plans and the incorrect application of increases to post penalties in the physician training contract. These two parties will not have an impact on the implementation of the agreements. The first hearing of the Compendium at WADA/ASMOF Victoria took place on Thursday 5 September at the Fair Labour Commission (FWC). This hearing provided an opportunity for the parties to present their respective positions on the dispute. The Victorian Hospitals` Industrial Association (VHIA) told the Commissioner that it did not believe that WADA/ASMOF had exhausted all the possibilities offered by the litigation procedure in the agreement and that, therefore, the Commission should not be able to resolve most of the issues raised in the dispute.
WADA/ASMOF Victoria disagrees and believes that we have complied with the requirements in litigation proceedings. We expect the agreements to be adopted next week. The parties also decided to take the issue of long-term leave to an arbitration tribunal because it is clear that we cannot agree on interpretation. Conflict: Unfortunately, the same principles do not apply to the bonus sign, since the text of the agreement explicitly states that the bonus must be paid to a doctor „subject to the agreement and who has been in the service of a health service on 1 January 2018“.
