Actas Enterprise Agreement
“Negotiations have been going on for some time, but I am very pleased that it is over and I understand that the paramedics on site are also very satisfied with the agreement,” he said. Mr. Gentleman announced that the ACT government has signed a new agreement on business negotiations with ACTAS, including a new Tier 2 ranking. ACT paramedics receive a pay increase after signing a new collective agreement (EBA) with the ACT government, which includes a planning committee to change schedules, annual leave and flexible working rules. “The new ACTAS corporate collective agreement includes investments in staff, employment opportunities and health, wellness and safety initiatives,” said Gentleman. “I very much appreciate the service of our paramedics, and this agreement will mean that they will have rewarding careers with the ACT Emergency Services Agency, where they are well trained and equipped to do their important work.” Klaus Pinkas of the transport workers` union, which covers ACTAS workers, said the new collective agreement for businesses was “a long time.” The announcement came two weeks after the ACT government reached a historic agreement with the firefighters` union following a long-standing standoff with ACT Fire and Rescue, which took union action during the EBA negotiations.
