The Communications Electrical Plumbing Union (CEPU), Victorian Ambulance Union Incorporated (VAU), United Firefighters’ Union (UFU) and United Workers’ Union (UWU) are pleased to advise members we have reached in-principle agreement with 000Victoria on a new Operational Employees Enterprise Agreement (the Agreement).

The next step will be drafting of the changes to the new Agreement which will be done prior to the end of April. Once that is completed, the Agreement will require final Government approval before going to members for a vote and then to the Fair Work Commission for approval.

Bargaining Representatives have worked tirelessly to achieve as many improvements to current conditions as possible. The Unions wish to thank your bargaining representatives/delegates, active members, and all those who participated in Industrial Action for their hard work in achieving these outcomes.

The monetary increases will be back dated to 3 April 2024 and paid in the first full pay period after this date, irrespective of the drafting, approval and voting process. Below you will find the Heads of Agreement. This details where the most significant changes are.

    3. Duration of Enterprise Agreement:

    • 4 years from date of first wage increase.

    Roles and Classification Structure

    4. Emergency Communications Officer Classification Structure

    The Agreement will be amended during the drafting process to introduce a new framework classification structure.

    The proposed classification structure with explanatory notes and rates of pay prior to the application of Government wages policy is contained in the classification table at Attachment 1(a) and associated flow chart at Attachment 1(b). These attachments will follow this notification as they are still being updated into a format to send. We will put these on our websites when available and notify you.

    Translation of current Call Takers, Dispatchers, Workplace Trainers, Assistant Team Leaders and Team Leaders to a classification level in the new structure will be consistent with the skills mapping contained in Attachments 1(a) and 1(b).

    The timing of the translation of the workforce to the framework classification structure and other associated logistical issues will be addressed in the drafting process.

    The new structure establishes a harmonised emergency services role of Emergency Communications Officer (ECO).

    The new structure will embed:

    1. higher base rates for new call takers
    2. improved multi-skilling pathways,
    3. new Senior Call Taker and Senior Dispatcher positions to recognise valuable experience at these levels
    4. new Senior Team Leader position to recognise additional leadership qualifications and experience for team leaders
    5. clearer and increased pathways for career advancement,
    6. recognition and reward for training progression (including classroom and consolidation)
    7. increased years of experience and service increments for classification levels

    No employee will suffer a decrease in their rate of pay as a result of translation to the new structure.

    Deployment and Rosters

    The Agreement will be amended during the drafting process to reflect the agreed amendments to rostering, deployment and associated provisions contained in Attachment 2. The changes are in summary as follows:

    5. Standard Rosters

    Standard rosters will continue to be 000VIC’s primary workforce roster  as they provide efficient and effective workforce deployment to meet the majority of community demand.

    The definition of standard roster will be amended as follows:

    1. Standard rosters will be defined as Roster A, B, C, and D (Roster C still being a legacy roster),
    2. The definition of standard roster will be amended to include flexible start and finish times of up to 2 hours and incorporate afternoon shifts.
    3. Increased options regarding part time variations on the standard roster to improve flexibility for the workforce.

    6. Non-standard Rosters

    000VIC will utilise non-standard rosters to meet predictable but non-linear community demand subject to the following:

    1. Non-Standard rosters will be defined as Roster E and F
    2. Non-Standard rosters will include full time and part time employees.
    3. 000VIC will utilise a minimum of 65% of Call Taker FTE per service on standard rosters
    4. 000VIC will progressively increase the minimum number of Call Taker FTE on Standard Rosters to 75% of its total Call Taker FTE
    5. Current per service Call Taker FTE ratio’s will not be reduced.

    7. Non-standard roster change

    Roster change arrangements for employees on Roster F will be consistent with the roster change arrangements in 000VIC’s Scheduling, Deployment and Staffing Levels Policy. This includes the ability to utilise the disputes settlement procedure to resolve concerns about roster changes.

    8. Roster Ballarat Fire

    Commitment to be inserted in Agreement to review the Ballarat fire roster during third year of the Agreement and current supervisory arrangements to continue until review concluded. Key requirements for the terms of reference for the review to be finalised and agreed in the drafting period.


    9. Multiskilling

    000VIC has committed to significantly increasing our multiskilled workforce. The commitment to increase multiskill opportunities will be referenced in the new Agreement as will 000VIC’s Multiskilling Policy – see Attachment 3.

    In summary the multiskilling parameters will include:

    1. An ongoing process for enhanced equitable access to multi-skilling.
      1. All eligible employees will have the opportunity to gain at least two additional skills above their two primary stream call taking skills. Expressions of Interest for multiskill training will open within 3 months of the commencement of the Agreement for eligible employees.
      1. Round one will be scheduled to a training course within 12 months.
      1. Round two must be scheduled within 2 years of round one being scheduled
      1. An eligible employee for this purpose means:
        1. a single stream call taker with no additional skill (Round 1); or
        1. a call taker with no more than one additional skill (above their two primary stream skills) (Round 2); or
        1. some existing longer serving dispatch employees who have previously unsuccessfully applied for multiskill training will also get priority access to training in round 1.


    1. the employee has successfully completed their FQA and 12 months service in their primary service at the time of application; and
      1. the employee is not currently working through a competency-related performance improvement plan

    Following initial EOI commitment being fulfilled 000VIC will commence bi-annual EOI’s for newly eligible employees access to train. The priorities for access to future multiskill training will be reviewed through consultation for the next Agreement.

    The parties have finalised the multiskilling policy which provides protection for employees when changing skill areas and ensure skills are able to be maintained.

    10. Williams Landing Ambulance Rostering

      000VIC is committed to preserving the Standard Roster as the foundation for meeting operational demand at all SECCs. 000Vic is considering options to establishing Standard Rosters in Ambulance at Williams Landing, noting the SECC does not operate this service 24 hours a day.

      Subject to the following, 000VIC will establish a 42 hour per week ERTCOMM standard roster option at Williams Landing. This initiative will proceed if an Expression of Interest (EOI) process identifies enough interest to establish a team or teams including 2 Assistant Team Leaders and 1 Team Leader.

      The EOI will be circulated no later than 11 April 2024.

      The EOI will include an option for those who wish to move later (e.g. in next 12 months). The EOI will be extended for team leader/ATL and team members beyond Williams landing (but priority will be given to those at Williams Landing). Employees will be advised of the key implications of the move (e.g. access to ROT, TIL).

      000VIC will consider and discuss other options for provision of 42 hours at Williams Landing following completion of the EOI process.

      000VIC will review current roster arrangements to consider the reported fatigue issues arising from the 10 hour break following shifts.

      If during the life of the agreement 000VIC considers making further changes to rostering/operational hours at Williams Landing, it will operate on the principle of creating and offering Standard Rosters to employees at Williams Landing as a first priority.

      11. Staffing levels

        000VIC has expanded on existing staffing arrangements through the development of a comprehensive Scheduling, Deployment and Staffing Levels Policy – see Attachment 4.

        The Policy includes:

        1. Minimum staffing level arrangements for call takers, dispatchers and supervisors across all sites and services, reviewed at a minimum every 12 months
          1. Commitments to ensure all reasonable steps are taken to resource to these staffing levels
          1. Commitment to cease the multi-selecting practice in Fire within the life of the agreement
          1. Commitment to utilise the standard roster as the foundation for staffing the operational workforce
          1. Processes for consultation on policy changes and roster change for deploying the nonstandard roster F workforce
          1. Staffing and deployment data will be provided regularly to UCC.

        12. Conversion Hours

        The current Clause 12.17 will be deleted from the Agreement as part of the redrafting process.

        The current arrangements regarding the management and scheduling of conversion hours will be amended.

        Key updates include:

        1. Where a roster/hours change is required, 000VIC will first propose effective dates of changes to roster or hours that incur the smallest number of conversion hours.
        2. Conversion hours will no longer be required to be worked when rostered hours have been adjusted to attend training, conduct mentor duties or move into another role.
        3. Where a roster/hours change occurs at the request of 000VIC and as result conversion hours are owed by the employee, 000VIC will not require these conversion hours to be worked. Should an employee request an alternative effective date which results in additional conversion hours owing, only these excess hours will be required to be worked.
        4. 000VIC will not require conversion hours to be worked when employees take authorised leave (parental or LWOP).
        5. In circumstances where conversion hours will be attracted due to an employee request, for example, roster or hours of work changes, the employee will be required to make up the conversion hours. 000VIC will first propose an effective date has which has the least amount of conversion hours to help reduce the impact.

        These arrangements and how conversion hours will be calculated will be captured in a guideline to be developed in consultation within the first 12 months of the Agreement.

        13. Access to Leave

          000VIC has made significant changes to improve employees’ access to planned leave that have been captured in 000VIC’s Leave Policy – see Attachment 5.

          In summary the changes include:

          1. Commitment to improve 000VIC leave reporting systems, which will improve visibility of planned leave types
            1. increasing leave availability (group allowances) and implementing automatic approval processes for Long Service Leave and Annual Leave requests made over 12 months in advance.
            1. Improvements to the management and review of rejected leave requests
            1. Leave Coordinators have been implemented on a trial basis in each SECC to support employees, managers and Resourcing & Logistics to identify opportunities to maximise access to leave.
            1. Access to improved leave arrangements for Team Leaders at WILSECC and equitable access to group allowances for roster F employees.
            1. Quarterly report to UCC on the methodology for, changes to and reviews of group allowances

          Due to the need for ongoing monitoring and improvements to leave access in consultation with the workforce, the leave policy, as well as the commitment to improved leave will be referenced (but not incorporated) in the new Agreement.

          Flexibility Equality, Diversity, Inclusion

          14. Flexible Working Arrangements

            000VIC’s Flexible Working Arrangements policy has been reviewed and amended in consultation with the unions – see Attachment 6.

            16. Purchased Leave

              000VIC Operational full-time employees (38/40/42hours) who previously were ineligible to apply for purchased leave will now be able to apply. All permanent part-time and full-time operational employees are eligible to apply. This initiative is captured in 000VICs Leave Policy – see Attachment 5

              17. 80/20 career break leave – mature aged workers

                000VIC will commence a trial in the 2nd year of the agreement for mature aged workers to apply for an 80/20 career break working arrangement. The 80/20 initiative will allow employees as part of an agreed road to retirement plan to work for 4 years and receive 80% of their salary and then take a 5th year off work with pay.
