Nursing Enterprise Agreement Act
Relationship with the EBA Mental Health There are two company agreements that apply to public sector nurses (non-midwives), one of which is the Nurse and Midwifery (Victorian Public Sector) (Single Interest Employers) Enterprise Agreement 2016-2020 – to which these improvements relate and another – the Victorian Public Health Care Company Agreement 2016-2020, which applies to all employees, who are employed in certain public psychiatric services. This last agreement is due to renegotiation and, as a general rule, we achieve the same results for nurses employed under this EBA. A company agreement is an agreement between an employer and his employees, which is covered by the agreement setting the wages and conditions of these workers for a maximum period of 4 years. We also aspire to changes resulting from disputes or difficulties we have encountered with the existing conditions of the EBA and we develop internal ideas to address what we believe will be beneficial for our wider membership. Once these steps are completed, the proposed EBA will proceed to the vote of all nursing professionals and midwives in the public sector and, if a majority of those voting support the new EBA, an application will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for approval. After the authorisation, the EBA works legally seven days later. The agreement applies to all registered nurses and midwives, nurses and nurses registered in the public service act. A company agreement is an agreement between an employer and his employees, which is covered by the agreement setting the wages and conditions of those workers for a maximum period of four years. . . .
