Annual Leave Loading Now Paying and Back Paying

CPSU and WorkSafe management have been in dispute about the salary cap for payment of annual leave loading, and if and when that salary cap should be adjusted and we won and WorkSafe is now paying and backpaying.


The dispute was referred to the Australian Industrial Relations Commission and mediated by Commissioner Smith.

As a result of this mediation, WorkSafe agreed to adjust the cap annually and back pay those staff who were eligible but whose salary was above the old unadjusted cap.

CPSU expected that this back pay would be paid early in July, as soon as the new certified agreement was in place; however WorkSafe decided that the annual leave loading back pay would be paid in early December, at the same time as this year s leave loading.

The cap for 2009 is $72,942.

The wait is now over and eligible members will receive the back pay in this pay as well as an Annual Leave Loading payment as per our WorkSafe Victoria Certified Agreement.

4% Pay increase from 1 December - Happy Pay Day

Our WorkSafe Victoria Certified Agreement also provides for a 4% pay increase effective from 1 December 2009.

This is the second 4% increase this year arising from our new Certified Agreement and reflects the hard work that members, delegates and CPSU Organisers and Officials have put into achieving good outcomes through the Certified Agreement negotiations.
