    • Additional week of annual leave
    • Increase superannuation contribution to 12%
    • Audit use of fixed term and casual employment and convert to ongoing
    • Remove overtime calculation and eligibility caps
    • New night shift rate
    • Extend paid leave to casual employees
    • New regional mobility mechanism with allowance for regional or rural location 'hard to fill' jobs
    • Review qualifications related to salary minimums, progression outcomes in line with Gender Pay Equity principles
    • New clause on Gendered Violence
    • New Jobs and Skills Exchange
