The Psychologists agreement is now in the process of being certified by the Fair Work Commission. The length of this process is not bound by any time restraints, and will depend on the Commissioner appointed and the back log of other agreements waiting to be certified.
HACSU bargained intensely through Forensicare negotiations knowing that all conditions will be transferred to psycholiogsts around the state.
All members should be congratulated for the fantastic outcomes in this agreement. Some of these new benefits include:
The sign on bonus and back pay will be paid across two pay cycles. HACSU made this request to avoid massive taxes on these payments. As soon as the agreement is certified by the Fair Work Commission, members can expect these payments in the following pay cycles.
HACSU will be in touch with the VHIA to keep members updated on this process and all relevant timeframes.
