Public sector enterprise bargaining negotiations between the Branch, the Deparment of Health and the VHIA representing public sector employers are underway, with meetings occurring twice a week. This makes the scheduling and delivery of regional seminars in early 2024 logistically difficult – as well as premature in terms of providing Job Reps with meaningful information about those negotiations.
Because of this, the Branch has made the decision to not deliver regional seminars in February and March 2024. We will instead look at how updates might be scheduled later in the year.
In lieu of the seminars, the Job Rep Training team will be offering the Foundations and Keeping it Organised programs from mid-January: keep an eye on communications from the Branch, or check the delegates portal for details.
And now’s the time to start thinking about any outstanding Job Reps you might want to nominate for the Hannah Sellars Job Rep of the Year award. Nominations will open in January, along with the HSR of the Year award nominations.
Keep an eye on communications from the Branch for more details.
