Here is a snapshot (not all) of the number and types of enterprise agreements that ANMF negotiates. Corumbene Nursing Agreement 2017 Non-Nursing Agreement 2017 Southern Cross Care (Tas) and Mary`s Grange Staff Enterprise Agreement 2017 Nurses and midwives with more workstations and bargaining power, such as the public sector, have more opportunities to take industrial action than to lobby an employer to improve their offerings. This explains why there is a pay gap between public nurses and private nurses and private caregivers for the elderly. 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. The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (Vic Branch) negotiates enterprise agreements for nearly 1900 yards in Victoria. These agreements describe the salaries and conditions of tens of thousands of nurses, midwives and staff and non-members. Your Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) is one of the most important documents of your professional life. Both the standard clause and clause 7 of the De Bupa agreement indicate that a significant change should have significant consequences for workers if, among other things, it results in the termination of workers` employment, a substantial change in the composition, company or size of the employer workforce, or the reduction of employment opportunities (including promotion or employment opportunities). Employers who benefit from a modern attribution or enterprise agreement should consult with workers and their representatives on important changes that may have a significant impact on the workplace. This decision clarified the extent of this duty of consultation in relation to possible layoffs and it is important to consider, during the review, the factors that your organization should consider in determining key job changes.
