CPSU NSW member survey: have your say on Enterprise Bargaining at the Benevolent Society

TBS survey – March 2020 (PDF version)

As you are probably aware, the Benevolent Society has commenced enterprise bargaining with not only transferred FACS employees but existing employees. These employees historically have had different entitlements:

  1. Crown Employees (Public Service Conditions of Employment) Reviewed Award 2009
  2. Crown Employees (Administrative and Clerical Officers – Salaries) Award 2007
  3. Crown Employees (Public Sector – Salaries 2017) Award
  4. Crown Employees (Psychologists) Award

This process of enterprise bargaining will be bringing employees under the one set of conditions, this mean the copied state award will no longer apply.

The Benevolent Society, the CPSU NSW and other relevant unions have met to begin discussions around how bargaining will proceed. The Benevolent Society briefly discussed workplace flexibility and how it can work better with the possibility of having practitioners work across classifications such as disability and child and family.

Next steps

We will be meeting again on 8 April 2020 we have put together a short survey to gauge what conditions in the copied state awards are most important to you as we begin the process of bargaining with the Benevolent Society.
