Industrial Relations Victoria helps departments, agencies and unions with industrial relations matters and enterprise bargaining. It ensures that consistent advice is given to employers and stakeholders, and that public sector employers are familiar with their obligations under the Government industrial relations policies.
Industrial Relations Victoria is a resource that parties can draw on to assist in the bargaining process. Its role is to:
- oversee bargaining across the public sector
- assist in bargaining negotiations to help parties find workable solutions and avoid disputes
- help to resolve disputes between parties
Current enterprise bargaining agreements
Government Wages Policy
A new Wages Policy applies to the Victorian public sector from 17 April 2019. It revokes and replaces the previous wages policy and guidance material.
To support the revised Wages Policy, and to improve the Government approval process, a new enterprise bargaining framework has been developed.
Departments and agencies should contact Industrial Relations Victoria if they need guidance throughout this transition.
