Bulletin 4 - Negotiations update - issued 4 August 2022

I am pleased to report that negotiations have been productive, with the parties meeting on a regular basis.   The current enterprise agreement expires on 10 August 2022 however all the current conditions will continue to apply until a new agreement is negotiated.

It is usual during negotiations for parties to indicate their ‘in principle’ agreement to particular claims and there are several matters where in principle agreement has been reached.

Further to this, I have agreed to the following:

  • The introduction of a professional uniform for Aboriginal Health Practitioners so they can be clearly identified in the community; and
  • An increase to the Professional Development Allowance.

The parties will continue to work constructively and I expect to be in a position to make an offer in the coming weeks.
