The AMA (WA) is explicitly designated by the Industrial Relations Act 1979 (AV) as the organization that represents the industrial interests of VA physicians. The offer includes salary increases of $1,000 per year starting July 1, 2018 and an additional $1,000 starting July 1, 2019. (share for part-time workers). The first wage increase will only be paid to workers employed at the time of registration of a new agreement by the WA Industrial Relations Commission. The offer applies to a two-year contract that expires on June 30, 2020, and the draft salary plan is available here. Below is a list of active public procurement and agreements.

We can reasonably predict that trade union actions will be halted by the WA Industrial Relations Commission. While we can hope for arbitration, it is very unlikely that it will succeed, either because the government would have to accept arbitration on a particular issue or because the Commission would have to accept conciliation, in which case the entire existing agreement and offer would be threatened. The other consideration is that, even if there were arbitration, it is very doubtful that the arbitrator would make a better offer than what we already have, considering that other public sector unions have signed similar agreements, and we know that the state`s finances are still in the red. You may remember that the police union stepped in and ended up at the Commission and won nothing. The following tables give an overview of the industrial tools applicable to the department`s staff. Specialized industry advice and resources, including copies of WADA-negotiated industrial agreements (VA) and private practice bulletins, are available on the resource pages. What we do know is that a no to the current offer would mean that the effective date of a salary increase would only be from the date we finally agreed, and that any changes to the terms would likely be lost. There will be no further wage increases or changes to other terms and conditions of employment until the union and the Ministry of Health reach an agreement. AMA (AV) also supports the Australian subsidiary of the Australian Salaried Medical Officers Federation (ASMOF), which is an organisation registered under the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009, which promotes the interests of employed doctors, represents its members before labour courts within the federal labour jurisdiction and negotiates employment contracts with employers. Our goal is to reach an agreement before June 30, 2018.

Agreements are negotiated more regularly (usually every 2 or 3 years) between unions and employers and registered by the Western Australian Industrial Relations Board (WAIRC). After registration, the provisions of the contract apply to all workers at the workplace who perform work covered by the employment contract. Please note that in 1998, individual agreements were certified for each health service for registered nurses, with some differences between them. Only a representative sample is available below.
