CPSU Week in Review – Still waiting on your pay rise?

Pay rise delay

The Public Sector Unions Wages Agreement (PSUWA), the Allied Health Professionals, Radiation Therapists, Dental Officers and Correctional Officers Agreements, were all registered with the Tasmanian Industrial Commission before Christmas.

While the pay rises in these Agreements will be paid from the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 December 2016, we understand Agencies are still working on updating rates in their payroll systems and calculating back pays and it may take a few pays to complete this.

Different Agencies will do this at different speeds so we suggest Members check with payroll to find out when they can expect the new rates and back pay to appear in their bank accounts.

Bargaining Reference Group Meetings

Those who attended last year’s Bargaining Reference Group meetings mentioned it was worthwhile to keep the group going – so after a short break it’s time to reconvene.

At the first run of meetings we will review our campaigns and look at what the Hodgman Government agreed to during the Public Sector Unions Wages Agreement (PSUWA), but we’ll need to hold the government to account for these things:
•  Development of arrangements for reclassification including application of merit in promotion without advertising
•  Development of guidelines for broad banding
•  Development of shift arrangements for TSSA
•  Workforce planning framework

Delegate Training

We are starting to develop our training calendar for 2017 and from our conversations last year we know workload and under staffing is an ongoing issue.

So, we want your feedback – how can we make our training days work best for you?
What are the best days and times to run training and what topics do you want to see covered?
Let us know!
