As members would be aware, this week there have been 100 meetings with Ambulance Victoria (AV), and the Victorian Government in order to reach agreement on a new enterprise agreement (EA) to replace the current EA which expired on 31 January 2024.

While we still have many areas of disagreement, industrial action taken by members has clearly had a positive effect in making some progress in several areas.

The parties have been able to reach in-principle agreement on several new or improved clauses relating to:

  • Workload
  • Advertising Vacancies and Recruitment
  • Anti-discrimination
  • Revised option to move meal break / WOO
  • Interpretation clause
  • Bullying and Harassment
  • Gender Equality
  • Right to Disconnect outside of working hours
  • Right to Request a Flexible Working Arrangement
  • Parental Leave (the parties continue to debate the quantum of parental leave but have reached agreement on the clause).
  • Long Service Leave
  • Single Days Off (SDO)
  • Timebank

Please note – nothing is locked in until final agreement is reached.

This is your agreement, and it is important to have your say. Please continue to send in your feedback. More agreed in principle clauses will be circulated for your feedback in coming weeks.
