The Nurses and Midwives (Victorian Public Sector) (Single Interest Employers) Enterprise Agreement 2020-2024 was formally approved by Deputy President Dean in the Fair Work Commission today (16 February 2022). The new EBA [PDF 12.1MB] becomes enforceable 7 days from today.
It has been a long journey, with many frustrating delays along the way, however the improvements in the 2020-2024 EBA were administratively implemented by public sector employers in March 2020 so members should already be enjoying the benefits of the new EBA.
For a list of the 2020-2024 EBA highlights see EBA update #8 (16 April 2020) and our frequently asked questions (17 April 2020).
ANMF will now be seeking confirmation of the process for members who took parental leave between 1 November 2018 and 1 July 2020 to have that period recognised as service for the purposes of long service leave. Members will be notified by a specific newsflash on this matter once confirmation is received.
Members patience throughout this period is appreciated.
