In 2016, ADAVB and Professionals Australias Australia (PA) formed an alliance to help dentists in community clinics find fairer working conditions. At that time, Victoria`s public dentists were paid up to 40% less than their state counterparts. During this early campaign, ADAVB and AP helped dentists in community clinics achieve a fair outcome for their negotiations with their employers and sought comparative terms and conditions of employment for inpatient dentists. Members of the public sector who have questions about their claims to the EBA are requested to read the above FAQs and discuss the issue with their employer. If this does not answer your question, please contact the ADAVB policy and research team for a discussion: tel: 03 8825 4600, e: firstname.lastname@example.org. In September 2018, after ongoing industrial action, effective targeted representation of interests and the united voice of ADAVB members, funding for a mirror agreement for community dentists, in agreement with Victoria`s hospital dentists, was finally secured. But this was not the end of negotiations for community dentists and labour disputes continued in 2018 and 2019. The Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) is committed to fair terms and conditions of employment for dentists in the public sector. We finance competent industrial advice and representations for members in corporate negotiations. Under the new EBA company agreement, public sector workers will benefit from a significant wage increase of 19.2% over the next four years. The Victorian company agreements for public dentists, public dentists and public dentists in training expired on 30 June 2017. The next phase of the EBA campaign, which started in 2017, focused on the EBA`s negotiations to achieve a single outcome for all dentists and dentists in the public sector, wherever they work. We have worked for more than two years on the EBA negotiations for health dentists in the community, and two EBA, which cover only seven out of eighteen municipal health centres, were submitted to the Fair Work Commission in January and March 2019.
Originally published as a Victorian public dentist and dentist, the ADAVB and AP continue to cooperate with the employer`s negotiator to implement these BABs. We also monitor the sector to help members access their full rights. « There is no doubt that this agreement will make a big difference in the recruitment and engagement of dentists engaged in the public sector, » said ADAVB President Dr. Kevin Morris. Professor Hopcraft said the new convention encourages clinicians to have experience and stay in the public sector where retention incentives are most needed. We encourage members of the public sector to familiarize themselves with the requirements of the new EBA. Refer to the following FAQs: The public sector serves over 400,000 vulnerable Victorians and this new agreement will ensure that all public sector employees get the respect, recognition and reward they deserve. .
