ACTPS Enterprise Agreement 2018: What You Need to Know

The ACTPS Enterprise Agreement 2018 is the latest collective agreement between the Australian Capital Territory Public Service (ACTPS) and its employees. This new agreement sets out the terms and conditions of employment for ACTPS employees and covers a range of issues, including pay, leave, and working hours.

One of the key changes in the new agreement is the introduction of a four-year pay deal that will see ACTPS employees receive a 7.8% pay increase over four years. This new pay deal provides certainty for employees and helps to attract and retain highly skilled staff within the ACTPS.

Other key features of the ACTPS Enterprise Agreement 2018 include enhancements to leave benefits, including improved parental leave provisions, and increased access to flexible working arrangements. There are also provisions that support the development and training of employees, including the introduction of a new professional development fund.

One area of particular interest in the new agreement is the focus on improving workplace culture and addressing issues related to bullying and harassment. The agreement includes a commitment to developing and implementing strategies to improve workplace culture, as well as providing support to employees who experience bullying or harassment.

The new agreement also includes provisions that aim to improve the work-life balance of ACTPS employees. For example, employees will have access to an additional two days of personal leave per year, which can be used for any purpose. This new leave entitlement recognises the importance of work-life balance and provides employees with greater flexibility to manage their personal and professional commitments.

Overall, the ACTPS Enterprise Agreement 2018 represents an important step in improving the terms and conditions of employment for ACTPS employees. With its focus on improving workplace culture, enhancing leave benefits, and providing greater flexibility to employees, the new agreement will help to attract and retain highly skilled and motivated staff within the ACTPS.
