C10 - Workplace Relations

The ACTPS Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate Enterprise Agreement 2011–13 provided for increased pay rates for all salary classifications and most allowances of 3.5% effective from July 2012. The agreement remained in place throughout 2012–13 with   a nominal expiry date of 30 June 2013. Negotiations were proceeding at the end of the financial year towards a new series of Enterprise Agreements.

With a view to achieving required budgetary measures, ESDD undertook a review of structure across the Directorate and identified some positions as potentially excess. As a result, eight staff were voluntarily retired from the Directorate during 2012–13.

ESDD continues to foster positive relationships and all efforts are made to address any industrial concerns at the local level before formal escalation. There were no industrial disputes during 2012–13.
