The Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 was officially approved by the Fair Labour Commission on October 2, 2020 and began its work on October 9, 2020.

Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 (PDF, 6.33 MB) Our clients have previously faced unfortunate uncertainty as to whether there was a result that involved multiple sanctions or whether the sanctions are dislocated, meaning that only one can be applied. In some cases, an employer may consider that more than one sanction should be applied in order to adequately remedy proven wrongdoing, without having to resort to termination of employment.

In recognition of the principles of mobility, a new mobility payment (similar to an annual bonus) was introduced in the VPS agreement. It is paid to all workers, whether or not they are actually affected by changes or mobility requirements, and is made annually on 1 July of each year in the form of a lump sum effective 1 July 2020. The parties to the agreement committed to implementing changes in the operation and provision of services by the Victorian government by adopting the principles of « labour mobility. » The principles recognize that the services required by the community of a modern public service are not static; they change all the time.

As was widely reported at the time of the vote on the VPS contract, workers will receive a pay increase of just over 8% over the four-year term of the contract, as well as related increases in benefits, with the first increases to be paid from 20 March 2020. This right will not only provide a significant benefit to workers who might otherwise be secondary guardians or unpaid attendants, a significant benefit to their child and the first caregiver at home (whether VPS staff or not), who may return to an earlier opportunity to advance their professional careers earlier than before. Workers receive a mobility bonus, which must be paid as an annual package, in recognition of their continued commitment to these new ways of working.
