BreastScreen Victoria has proposed a number of changes to the proposed enterprise agreement, some positive, many negative. They also accepted some VAHPA applications, but not most of them. Recently, they have put on the table an offer of wages, although this unfortunately provides for wage increases of less than 2% per year. The list of applications includes the applicant`s number, the name of the agreement, the title of the agreement, economic activity, the date the application was filed, the approval or difference of the application, and the status of the application. Negotiations for a new enterprise agreement for employees, including Allied Health Professionals, at BreastScreen Victoria began earlier this year. At present, no significant progress has been made. Please include your name, number and name of agreement. A team member must contact you within 2 business days. Negotiations on the new agreement will continue until July. Workers are invited to vote on the agreement just before their presentation to the Fair Work Commission.

The only way to get Community employers in the health sector to negotiate individual agreements is to ask the Fair Labour Commission for a decision called majority support. This requires the majority of affected employees to sign a workplace petition stating that they want to negotiate for a single operating contract. After long and lengthy negotiations in which members voted on the initial agreement before Christmas, a revised agreement was approved by members, which provides for the introduction for Level 2 of the 5th year and a clause to reimburse the holidays in the future and annual wage increases of 3%. The agreement provides that each unit has a full-time head of department and five full-time service heads to provide clinical management and supervision of morning, afternoon and night shifts seven days a week. With the expiration, in nominal terms, of the agreement on the Community health sector more than a year ago, on 30 June 2016, measures to improve the salaries and conditions of allied health professionals in the community health sector and the well-being of the sector as a whole are beginning to begin.
