Normally, the next step would be to distribute the proposed 2020-2024 employment and midwifery contract to the workers concerned, and then vote to seek a majority in favour of the proposed agreement. The agreement would then have been the subject of an application for authorization from the Fair Work Commission and will become final seven days after that approval. ANMF members had about 170 claims that covered definitions; Holidays Allowances Midwifery governance Predictable working hours Fatigue and overtime Dispute resolution Recruitment and engagement initiatives; Training and professional development Maximizing indeterminate employment; Workplace safety and health Gender equality. There were some difficulties that resulted from the fact that haEC did not want LEMF to sit at the table while discussing non-health requirements. In order to protect the interests of our nurses and, indeed, the integrity of mental health care in public psychiatric services, it is essential that LEMF understand the impact of HACSU`s non-nursing claims on nurses. Nearly 2,000 Victorian public service nurses and midwives voted overwhelmingly in favour of a proposal to settle their claims to businesses by 2020-24. Updates from the ANMF mental health campaign are available on anmfvic.asn.au/EBA2020mentalhealthnursing HACSU say it is sick care and not employment by or in a public psychiatric ward, which should determine the application of the EBA. This sentence is not consistent with the previous terms or the long-standing operation of the two AEs. In order to prevent these multiple procedures from further delaying the 2020-2024 employment contract, ANMF has reached an agreement with HSU to resolve the dispute with HACSU before a full bank of the Fair Work Commission. This must be done within the framework of a complete and final resolution of all issues. ANMF (Vic Branch) Secretary Lisa Fitzpatrick said: „Without having to fight to maintain a safe workforce, it means that we have been able to continue to conduct some of the most productive EBA negotiations since our first agreement in 1997.
