Act Nurses Enterprise Agreement

For more information on your representation rights under the Fair Work Act 2009, enterprise agreements and their negotiations are also available at: 2016 Bupa Nurses meet outside Bupa headquarters The negotiation process was initiated by the Hawke/Keating Labor Government in the early 1990s. It replaced the priority given to national wages and industrial bonuses, which helped to identify the wages and conditions of categories of workers. The purpose and intent of enterprise bargaining was to obtain higher wages and better terms than the bonuses granted. The classifications covered by the proposed agreement are as follows: the 37-day industrial campaign of Bupa members in 2017, including rotating strikes, remains unprecedented in Australia`s aged care sector. The measures taken by nurses and nurses enabled Bupa to improve its offer of a 2.1% wage increase and not to change a one-year contract to 11.25% over three years, plus additional payment, improved fees and improved employment procedures. In 1997, the ANMF negotiated the first Victorian nurse and midwife eBA. At the time of the pressure, the ANMF was negotiating the seventh public sector EBA. The agreement covers about 60,000 nurses and midwives. Their strength in terms of numbers and their ability to take important trade union measures, such as the closure of beds and the abolition of electoral operations, mean that in two decades they have achieved significant improvements in conditions, wages and workloads. It is an agreement between the employer and the employee that exposes your wages, working conditions, career structures, allowances and rights.

The EbA operates with the full force of the law. They are legally applicable and, if not followed by employers, the court may order significant sanctions against them. An enterprise agreement is an agreement between an employer and its employees that is covered by the agreement setting the wages and conditions of these workers for a maximum of four years. The rules set out in the Fair Work Act only allow for an enterprise agreement to cover an employer.
