Sapol Eba Agreement
To view the official copy of an enterprise agreement, please contact SAET Registry. PASA negotiates enterprise agreements on behalf of its members and, if necessary, seeks to change the price of police officers. PasA has been negotiating business agreements with the government since 1995. Some enterprise agreements offer an alternative to the salaries and conditions set by the award. Others refer to certain attribution conditions and set other conditions. A party to an enterprise agreement may apply for authorization, registration or employment with SAET. “This administrative agreement honours the important work our hard-working police officers do to keep our community safe and ensures that SAPOL has the resources and flexibility to effectively implement the government`s plan to build state capacity on the front lines,” said Treasurer Lucas. Marshall`s Liberal government has agreed with the South Australian Police Association (PASA) on a new interim agreement on salaries and conditions for sworn police officers. SAET`s role is to approve the agreement if it meets the specific requirements of the Fair Work Act 1994.
If you are a party to a signed enterprise agreement, you must apply for SAET authorization within 21 days for SAET to approve it. After approval, the agreement will enter into force. Treasurer Rob Lucas said PASA had worked with the government to reach an agreement. SAET may also reconcile or give instructions when parties are working to negotiate an agreement. The wage increases were calculated in accordance with the terms of the enterprise agreement reached by the former Labour government, which requires that police officers` salaries in South Australia be adjusted to 60% of the difference between the third and fourth level of remuneration in all intergovernmental jurisdictions. This means that actual increases are both slightly above and below average, depending on the classification. An enterprise agreement sets out the conditions of employment of workers covered by the agreement. It is negotiated through a premium security network to help employers and workers define working conditions that will support their needs. The deal provides for a pay rise in July 2018, which is a condition of the current 2016 enterprise contract, inherited from the former Labor government. It also includes a further increase in July 2019.
The average increase is about 2.5%. The leadership of the police association is that of an executive leader elected from among the whole union. The executive consists of the president and secretary, dismissed by the employer after the election to work full time for the police association, and 10 committee members who are volunteers.
