Following a couple of years of bargaining and waiting for the Fair Work commission (FWC) to approve your Community Health Centre multi business agreement, it’s finally been approved. This agreement was voted for near the start of this year.
ASU members at CHC’s will now finally get some back pay. The amount will vary for each member depending on their classification and how long they’ve worked for their employer.
Some of the improvements to the agreement include:
- An additional pay level in bands up to band 5
- Family Violence Leave
- A Casual Conversion clause
- Improved Parental Leave clause
- We have 30 of the 31 CHCs signed up
The ASU would like to congratulate all CHC delegates and members who have worked so hard to get this agreement finalised.
This agreement is a reminder why we are campaigning to change the rules. The whole process of bargaining under the Fair Work Act is broken and we need to fight for a process that is fairer for workers and allows bargaining for agreements, at an enterprise or industry level, to happen faster and fairer.
