4.  Area, Incidence and Duration

 

The provisions of this Award shall apply to officers, departmental temporary employees and casual employees employed by the Government of NSW under the Government Sector Employment Act 2013 in classifications covered by the provisions of the awards and agreements set out at Schedule "A" of this Award and will not apply to employees covered by the Taronga Conservation Society Australia Wages Employees’ Award.

 

This award rescinds and replaces the Crown Employees Wages Staff (Rates of Pay) Award 2020 published 26 February 2021 (389 I.G 346) and all variances. This award has a nominal term of 12 months from 1 July 2021 with any increases to pay and work related allowances effective from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2021.

 

5.  Wages and Allowances

 

(i)       Wage rates and allowances are set out in Part B.

 

(ii)      The wage increases referred to in paragraph 5(i) of this award shall only be paid to those employees who are employed as at the date of the making of this award.

 

(iii)     The increases referred to in paragraph 5(i) of this award do not apply to expense related allowances as set out in Schedule D of Part B.

 

6.  Facilitative Arrangement

 

(i)       The purpose of this arrangement is to facilitate agency level bargaining on classification structures.

 

(ii)      Specifically, the industrial parties are committed to the introduction of classification structures which provide a career path for trades and wages staff, recognise the importance of training and provide for appropriate progression. These arrangements are to be developed on an agency by agency basis. The parties at the sector-wide level are to establish minimum standards to include in the Crown Employees Wages Staff Rates of Pay Award.

 

(iii)     Further achievement of agency level outcomes should be achieved through:

 

(a)       Each agency that has not implemented a skills based classification structure is to establish a joint union and management committee.

 

(b)      Where applicable, the Industrial Relations Secretary and Unions NSW may seek quarterly progress reports on agency level committee negotiations.

 

(c)       The committee is to consider the existing arrangements in an agency, review the arrangements achieved already in other agencies, and establish negotiation parameters including:

 

(1)       the development of level descriptors;

 

(2)       identification of structured training for the purposes of the level descriptors; and

 

(3)       translation of existing staff into any new structure.

 

(d)      It is anticipated that agency level committees will complete their negotiations by the making of appropriate agency level industrial instruments. Such agency level arrangements will be reviewed by Unions NSW and the Industrial Relations Secretary to establish minimum standards in the sector-wide Wages Staff Rates of Pay Award.

 

(e)       The usual Dispute Resolution procedures as set out in clause 10 will be followed by the industrial parties in the context of these negotiations.

 

(f)       Should the agency level bargaining not be likely to be settled by the wages unions claim for a particular agency, then either party may seek the assistance of the Industrial Relations Commission of NSW through either conciliation and/or arbitration.

 

7.  Salary Packaging Arrangements, Including Salary Sacrifice to Superannuation

 

(i)       The entitlement to salary package in accordance with this clause is available to:

 

(a)       permanent full-time and part-time employees;

 

(b)      temporary employees, subject to the Department or agency’s convenience; and

 

(c)       casual employees, subject to the Department or agency’s convenience, and limited to salary sacrifice to superannuation in accordance with subclause (vii).

 

(ii)      For the purposes of this clause:

 

(a)       "salary" means the salary or rate of pay prescribed for the employee's classification by clause 4, Wages and Allowances, Part B of this Award, and any other payment that can be salary packaged in accordance with Australian taxation law.

 

(b)      "post compulsory deduction salary" means the amount of salary available to be packaged after payroll deductions required by legislation or order have been taken into account. Such payroll deductions may include, but are not limited to, taxes, compulsory superannuation payments, HECS payments, child support payments, and judgement debtor/garnishee orders.

 

(iii)     By mutual agreement with the Industrial Relations Secretary, an employee may elect to package a part or all of their post compulsory deduction salary in order to obtain:

 

(a)       a benefit or benefits selected from those approved by the Industrial Relations Secretary; and

 

(b)      an amount equal to the difference between the employee’s salary, and the amount specified by the Industrial Relations Secretary for the benefit provided to or in respect of the employee in accordance with such agreement.

 

(iv)     An election to salary package must be made prior to the commencement of the period of service to which the earnings relate.

 

(v)       The agreement shall be known as a Salary Packaging Agreement.

 

(vi)     Except in accordance with subclause (vii), a Salary Packaging Agreement shall be recorded in writing and shall be for a period of time as mutually agreed between the employee and the Industrial Relations Secretary at the time of signing the Salary Packaging Agreement.

 

(vii)    Where an employee makes an election to sacrifice a part or all of their post compulsory deduction salary as additional employer superannuation contributions, the employee may elect to have the amount sacrificed:

 

(a)       paid into the superannuation fund established under the First State Superannuation Act 1992; or

 

(b)      where the employer is making compulsory employer superannuation contributions to another complying superannuation fund, paid into the same complying fund; or

 

(c)       subject to the Department or agency’s agreement, paid into another complying superannuation fund.

 

(viii)   Where the employee makes an election to salary sacrifice, the employer shall pay the amount of post compulsory deduction salary, the subject of election, to the relevant superannuation fund.

 

(ix)     Where the employee makes an election to salary package and where the employee is a member of a superannuation scheme established under the:

 

(a)       Police Regulation (Superannuation) Act 1906;

 

(b)      Superannuation Act 1916;

 

(c)       State Authorities Superannuation Act 1987; or

 

(d)      State Authorities Non-contributory Superannuation Act 1987,

 

the employee’s Department or agency must ensure that the employee’s superable salary for the purposes of the above Acts, as notified to the SAS Trustee Corporation, is calculated as if the Salary Packaging Agreement had not been entered into.

 

(x)       Where the employee makes an election to salary package, and where the employee is a member of a superannuation fund other than a fund established under legislation listed in subclause (ix) of this clause, the employee’s Department or agency must continue to base contributions to that fund on the salary payable as if the Salary Packaging Agreement had not been entered into.  This clause applies even though the superannuation contributions made by the Department or agency may be in excess of superannuation guarantee requirements after the salary packaging is implemented.

 

(xi)     Where the employee makes an election to salary package:

 

(a)       subject to Australian Taxation law, the amount of salary packaged will reduce the salary subject to appropriate PAYG taxation deductions by the amount packaged; and

 

(b)      any allowance, penalty rate, payment for unused leave entitlements, weekly worker’s compensation or other payment, other than any payments for leave taken in service, to which an employee is entitled under this Award or any applicable Award, Act or statute which is expressed to be determined by reference to the employee’s rate of pay, shall be calculated by reference to the rate of pay which would have applied to the employee under clause 4, Wages and Allowances, or Part B, of this Award if the Salary Packaging Agreement had not been entered into.

 

(xii)    The Industrial Relations Secretary may vary the range and type of benefits available from time to time following discussion with the Unions NSW and unions.  Such variations shall apply to any existing or future Salary Packaging Agreement from date of such variation.

 

(xiii)   The Industrial Relations Secretary will determine from time to time the value of the benefits provided following discussion with the Unions NSW and unions.  Such variations shall apply to any existing or future Salary Packaging Agreement from the date of such variation.  In this circumstance, the employee may elect to terminate the Salary Packaging Agreement.

10.  Dispute Resolution Procedures

 

Subject to the provisions of the Industrial Relations Act 1996, all disputes relating to the provisions of this Award shall be dealt with in the following manner so as to ensure the orderly settlement of the matters in question:

 

(i)       Any grievance or dispute which arises shall, where possible, be settled by discussion on the job between the staff member and the immediate supervisor.

 

(ii)      If the matter is not resolved at this level, it will be further discussed between the staff member and the union delegate/employees representative and the employer.

 

(iii)     If no agreement is reached within a reasonable time period, the union or the employees representative will discuss the matter with the staff member’s nominated representative.

 

(iv)     While the foregoing procedure is being followed, work shall continue normally. No part shall be prejudiced as to the final settlement by the continuance of work in accordance with this subclause.

 

(v)       Should the matter still not be resolved within a reasonable time period, it may be referred to the Industrial Relations Commission of New South Wales for settlement by either party.

 

11.  Deduction of Union Membership Fees

 

(i)       The union shall provide the employer with a schedule setting out union fortnightly membership fees payable by members of the union in accordance with the union’s rules.

 

(ii)      The union shall advise the employer of any change to the amount of fortnightly membership fees made under its rules. Any variation to the schedule of union fortnightly membership fees payable shall be provided to the employer at least one month in advance of the variation taking effect.

 

(iii)     Subject to (i) and (ii) above, the employer shall deduct union fortnightly membership fees from the pay of any employee who is a member of the union in accordance with the union’s rules, provided that the employee has authorised the employer to make such deductions.

 

(iv)     Monies so deducted from employee’s pay shall be forwarded regularly to the union together with the necessary information to enable the union to reconcile and credit subscriptions to employees’ union membership accounts.

 

(v)       Unless other arrangements are agreed to by the employer and the union, all union membership fees shall be deducted on a fortnightly basis.

 

(vi)     Where an employee has already authorised the deduction of union membership fees from his or her pay prior to this clause taking effect, nothing in this clause shall be read as requiring the employee to make a fresh authorisation in order for such deductions to continue.
