I am writing to provide you with an update on the Australian Public Service Commission’s (APSC) progress towards commencing APS service-wide bargaining for common terms and conditions. The APS bargaining process will also aim to take initial steps to reduce pay fragmentation across the APS.
I am reaching out to you directly because I want to ensure that all APS employees have the opportunity to contribute to the development of this very important process. I therefore want to hear from you about your views and priorities for APS bargaining and invite you to have your say.
How do I have my say on APS bargaining?
To inform the APS bargaining process, the APSC has been consulting with APS agencies and unions. More information on our consultation to date is available on the APS bargaining website.
I am now seeking your views and invite you to complete a short survey which is accessible below. The survey seeks your views about what employment conditions matter the most to you, and what conditions you consider should be standardised across the APS.
The survey is anonymous and will take you less than 5 minutes to complete. The survey will close on Friday, 3 February 2023.
