VPS Enterprise Agreement - How is it different to other EBAs?
The VPS Enterprise Agreement is unusual in that it covers tens of thousands of employees in hundreds of different workplaces across 40 separate employers.
The Agreement has two parts – the 'Core' and the 'Appendices'.
The Core contains all conditions that are common across the Victorian Public Service, such as Annual Leave, Personal Leave, Parental Leave, Pay and Long Service Leave.
There are also 14 'Appendices' that cover specific departments and that is where allowances and specific provisions like rostered hours of work provisions are documented (Appendix).
