AHPRA Bulletin and Members Meeting
Following an improved offer from AHPRA, the Unions have responded to AHPRA with this proposal.
The latest Union proposals are highlighted as follows.
- Here is the three-year agreement for the salary increase. All dates are from the first full pay period after the date:
- 3.0 per cent from 1 July 2022
- 3.0 per cent from 1 July 2023
- 3.0 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 – agreed.
- Agreement to expire 30 June 2025 – agreed.
- AHPRA have withdrawn their claim to insert the capacity to place an employee on no pay who has been charged with a serious criminal offense that has a term of imprisonment of 2 years or more. Instead, AHPRA will use the existing provisions under our code of conduct and the enterprise agreement provisions dealing with serious misconduct – agreed.
- Changes that AHPRA have previously proposedhave been adjusted to reflect a 3-year agreement. In particular, I draw your attention to the adjusted increases in primary and non-primary carer leave – the Unions want AHPRA to keep the status quo for Personal leave.
- AHPRA have also inserted into the previously updated diversity and inclusion clause (Clause 15), a reference to dealing with pay equity and have indicated they would welcome a discussion around a wider approach to diversity. This is in addition to important issues of gender equity and requires further discussion.
The Unions want AHPRA to agree to a 1 per cent top-of-band increase for those employees who meet their progression goals.
A meeting of Union members will be held to get members’ views about the revised AHPRA offer:

It’s also important that we keep growing as a union at AHPRA, especially during EBA negotiations. If you know someone who isn’t a member and is interested in joining, please talk with them about the benefits of union membership and ask them to join online.
