Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency members receive new offer
Unions have received a new offer from Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) following the success staff had voting down the previous unacceptable offer from AHPRA management.
The improved offer is as follows:
- The three-year agreement for the salary offer is as follows. All dates are from the first full pay period after the date:
- three per cent from 1 July 2022
- three per cent from 1 July 2023
- 2.5 per cent from 1 July 2024
- Lump sum of $1000 paid ASAP after a successful yes vote and a further lump sum of $500 paid with the July 2023 pay increase.
- Agreement to expire 30 June 2025.2.
- AHPRA has withdrawn its claim to insert the capacity to place an employee on no pay who has been charged with a serious criminal offense that has a term of imprisonment of two years or more. Instead, AHPRA will use the existing provisions under our code of conduct and the enterprise agreement provisions dealing with serious misconduct.
- Changes that AHPRA has previously proposed have been adjusted to reflect a three-year agreement. In particular, I draw your attention to the adjusted increases in primary and non-primary carer leave.
- AHPRA has also inserted into the previously updated diversity and inclusion clause (Clause 15), a reference to dealing with pay equity and has indicated it would welcome a discussion around a wider approach to diversity in addition to important issues of gender equity.
A meeting of union members will be held to get their views about the revised AHPRA offer this Thursday 18 August 12:00pm-1:00pm. Click HERE to access the meeting.
