PART A

 

1. Title

 

This award shall be known as the Crown Employees (Public Service Training Wage) Reviewed Award 2008.

 

2. Application

 

(a) This award applies to persons who are undertaking an approved traineeship and is to be read in conjunction with the Public Sector Employment and Management Act 2002 and the Public Sector Employment and Management (General) Regulation 1996 and any relevant industrial instrument.

 

(b) The terms and conditions of any relevant industrial instrument apply, except where inconsistent with this award.

 

(c) This award does not apply to employees who were employed under any industrial instrument prior to the date of approval of a traineeship relevant to the Department, except where agreed upon between the department head and the relevant union(s).

 

(d) This award does not apply to the apprenticeship system.

 

3. Objective

 

The objective of this award is to assist with the establishment of a system of approved traineeships that provide nationally recognised training in conjunction with employment in order to enhance the skill levels and future employment prospects of trainees, particularly young people, and the long-term unemployed.

 

The system is neither designed nor intended for those who are already trained and job ready. It is not intended that existing employees will be displaced from employment by trainees.

 

This award does not replace the prescription of training requirements in any relevant industrial instrument.

(h) A trainee who fails to either complete the traineeship or who cannot for any reason be placed in full-time employment with the department on successful completion of the traineeship is not entitled to any severance payments.

 

7. Wages

 

(a)

 

(i) The weekly wages payable to trainees are as provided in Table 1 - Full-time Weekly Wage Rates, of Part B, Monetary Rates.

 

(ii) These wage rates will only apply to trainees while they are undertaking an approved traineeship which includes an approved training course or training program as defined in this award.

 

(iii) The wage rates prescribed by this clause do not apply to complete trade level training covered by the apprenticeship system.

 

(iv) The rates of pay in this award include the adjustments payable under the State Wage Case 2010. These adjustments may be offset against any equivalent over-award payments and/or award wage increases since 29 May 1991 other than safety net, State Wage Case, and minimum rates adjustments.

 

(b) Appendix A to Part B, Monetary Rates, sets out the general skill levels for traineeships. The determination of the appropriate skill level for each approved traineeship is based on the following criteria:

 

(i) any agreement of the parties;

 

(ii) the nature of the industry;

 

(iii) the total training plan;

 

(iv) recognition that training can be undertaken in stages; and

 

(v) the exit skill level in the relevant industrial instrument contemplated by the training contract.

 

If the parties disagree with such determination, any party to the award may seek to have the matters in dispute determined by the Industrial Relations Commission of New South Wales.

 

(c) For the purposes of this award, "out of school" refers only to periods out of school beyond Year 10, and is deemed to:

 

(i) include any period of schooling beyond Year 10 which was not part of nor contributed to a completed year of schooling;

 

(ii) include any period during which a trainee repeats in whole or part a year of schooling beyond Year 10; and

 

(iii) not include any period during a calendar year in which a year of schooling is completed;

 

(iv) have effect on an anniversary date, being 1 January in every year.

 

(d) For the purposes of this award, any person leaving school before completing Year 10 is deemed to have completed Year 10.

 

(e) At the conclusion of the traineeship, this award ceases to apply to the employment of the trainee and the relevant industrial instrument applies to the former trainee.

 

8. Part-Time Traineeships

 

(a) Trainees who undertake traineeships on a part-time basis work less than full-time ordinary hours and undertake the approved training course or training program at the same or lesser training time than a full-time trainee.

 

(b) A part-time trainee receives, on a pro rata basis, all employment conditions applicable to a full-time trainee. All the provisions of this award apply to part-time trainees except as specified in this clause.

 

(c) A part-time trainee may, by agreement, transfer to a full-time traineeship position if one becomes available.

 

(d) The minimum daily engagement periods specified in the relevant industrial instrument are also applicable to part-time trainees.

 

If there is no provision for a minimum daily engagement period in the relevant industrial instrument applying to part-time employees, then the minimum start is three continuous hours. By agreement, a part-time trainee may work a minimum start of two continuous hours, on two or more days per week, provided that:

 

(i) a two-hour start is sought by the trainee to accommodate the trainee's personal circumstances; or

 

(ii) the place of work is within a distance of five kilometres from the trainee's place of residence.

 

9. School-Based Traineeships

 

(a) School-based trainees undertake traineeships on a part-time basis in accordance with the requirement to balance their school and work commitments. The department head must set hours of work consistent with the trainee's obligation to attend school.

 

(b) School-based trainees are not required to attend work during the interval starting four weeks prior to the commencement of the final year Higher School Certificate Examination period and ending upon the completion of the trainee's last HSC examination paper.

 

(c) School-based trainees must not work on their own.

 

(d) For the purposes of this award, a school-based trainee becomes either a full-time or part-time trainee as at 1 January of the year following the year in which they ceased to be a school student.

 

10. Wage Rates for Part-Time and School-Based Trainees

 

Weekly Wage Rates

 

(a) The wage rate calculation is based on the full-time wage rate varied by the amount of training and/or the amount of work over the period of the training contract. The formula is:

 

Weekly Wage

=

Full-time wage rate x (trainee hours - average weekly training time)

 

 

28

 

Note: 28 in the above average formula represents 35 ordinary full-time hours minus the average training time for full-time trainees (i.e. 20%). The formula will be adjusted if the relevant industrial instrument specifies different ordinary full-time hours. For example, if the ordinary weekly hours are 38, 30.4 will replace 28.

 

(b) "Full-time wage rate" means the appropriate rate as set out in Table 1 - Full-time Weekly Wage Rates, of Part B, Monetary Rates.

 

(c) "Trainee hours" are the hours worked per week including the time spent in the approved course or program. For the purposes of this definition, the time spent in the approved course or program may be taken as an average for that particular year of the traineeship.

 

(d) "Average weekly training time" is based upon the length of the traineeship specified in the training contract. The formula is:

 

Average weekly training time

=

7 x 12

 

 

Length of the traineeship in months

 

Note 1: 7 in the above formula represents the average weekly training time for a full-time trainee whose ordinary hours are 35 per week. The formula will be adjusted if the relevant industrial instrument specifies different ordinary weekly hours. For example, where the ordinary weekly hours are 38, 7.6 will replace 7.

 

Note 2: The parties note that the training contract will require a trainee to be employed for sufficient hours to complete all requirements of the recognised traineeship vocation, including the on-the-job work component and demonstration of competencies. The parties also note that this would normally result in the equivalent of a full day's on-the-job work per week.

 

Example of the calculation for the wage rate for a part-time traineeship:

 

A school student commences a traineeship in Year 11. The ordinary hours of work in the relevant industrial instrument are 35. The training contract specifies two years (24 months) as the length of the traineeship.

 

Average weekly training time is therefore

7 x 12

=

3.5 hours

 

24

 

 

 

"Trainee hours" total 15 hours, made up of 11 hours work over two days of the week plus 1 hours on-the-job training plus 2 hours off-the-job approved training at school and at TAFE.

 

So the wage rate in Year 11 is:

 

$264.00 x (15 ‑ 3.5)

=

$108.43 plus any applicable penalty rates under the

28

 

relevant industrial instrument

 

The wage rate varies when the student completes Year 11 and passes the anniversary date of 1 January the following year to begin Year 12 and/or if "trainee hours" changes.

 

Hourly Wage Rates

 

Due to the variation in hours worked each week for some part-time trainees, especially school-based trainees, it may be appropriate to pay an hourly wage rate as provided in Table 2 - Hourly Wage Rates, of Part B, Monetary Rates. The hourly rates as set out in Table 2 are based on a 35-hour week. If the ordinary full-time weekly hours are not 35, the rate in the table should be multiplied by 35 and then divided by the ordinary full-time hours to obtain the correct hourly rate.

 

The hours for which payment is made are determined as follows:

 

(a) Where the approved training for a traineeship (including a school-based traineeship) is provided off the job by a registered training organisation, for example, at school or at TAFE, these rates only apply to the total hours worked by the part-time trainee on the job.

 

(b) Where the approved training is undertaken on the job or in a combination of on the job and off the job, and the average proportion of time to be spent in approved training is 20% (i.e. the same as for the equivalent full time traineeship):

 

(i) if the training is solely on the job, then the total hours on the job are multiplied by the applicable hourly rate, and then 20% is deducted.

 

(ii) if the training is partly on the job and partly off the job, then the total of all hours spent in work and training are multiplied by the applicable hourly rate, and then 20% is deducted.

 

Note: 20% is the average proportion of time spent in approved training which has been taken into account in setting the wage rates for most full-time traineeships.

 

11. Grievance and Dispute Settling Procedures

 

(a) In general, matters relating to trainees are dealt with under the provisions of the Apprenticeship and Traineeship Act 2001.

 

(b) In accordance with the grievance and dispute settling procedures, the trainee notifies the supervisor of the substance of any grievance or dispute and requests a meeting with the supervisor to discuss the matter and, if possible, states the remedy sought.

 

Where the grievance or dispute involves confidential or other sensitive material (including issues of harassment or discrimination under the Anti Discrimination Act, 1977) that makes it impractical for the trainee to advise their immediate manager the notification may occur to the next appropriate level of management, including where required, to the Department Head or delegate.

 

(c) If no remedy is found, the trainee seeks further discussions and attempts to resolve the grievance or dispute at a higher level of authority, where appropriate.

 

(d) Reasonable time limits must be allowed for discussion at each level of authority, having regard to the nature of the grievance or dispute.

 

(e) At the conclusion of the discussion, the trainee must be provided with a response to their grievance or dispute if the matter has not been resolved, including reasons for not implementing any proposed remedy.

 

(f) Any party to the traineeship can refer the matter to the New South Wales Vocational Training Tribunal under the provisions of the Apprenticeship and Traineeship Act 2001.

 

(g) If no resolution can be found, any party to the grievance or dispute or their representatives may refer the matter to the Industrial Relations Commission of New South Wales.

 

(h) The trainee may involve a representative, including a union, and the department may be represented by more senior management or other appropriate person or body for the purposes of each procedure.

 

(i) While the dispute procedure is being followed, normal work continues.

 

12. Anti-Discrimination

 

(a) It is the intention of the parties bound by this award to seek to achieve the object in section 3(f) of the Industrial Relations Act 1996 to prevent and eliminate discrimination in the workplace. This includes discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, marital status, disability, homosexuality, transgender identify, age and responsibilities as a carer.

 

(b) It follows that, in fulfilling their obligations under clause 11, Grievance and Dispute Settling Procedures, the parties have obligations to take all reasonable steps to ensure that the operation of the provisions of this award are not directly or indirectly discriminatory in their effects. It will be consistent with the fulfilment of these obligations for the parties to make application to vary any provision of the award which, by its terms or operation, has a direct or indirect discriminatory effect.

 

(c) Under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977, it is unlawful to victimise an employee because the employee has made or may make or has been involved in a complaint of unlawful discrimination or harassment.

 

(d) Nothing in this clause is to be taken to affect:

 

(a) any conduct or act which is specifically exempted from anti-discrimination legislation;

 

(b) offering or providing junior rates of pay to persons under 21 years of age;

 

(c) any act or practice of a body established to propagate religion which is exempted under section 56(d) of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977;

 

(d) a party to this award from pursuing matters of unlawful discrimination in any State or Federal jurisdiction.

 

(e) This clause does not create legal rights or obligations in addition to those imposed upon the parties by legislation referred to in this clause.

 

Notes:

 

(a) Employers and employees may also be subject to Commonwealth anti-discrimination legislation.

 

(b) Section 56(d) of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 provides:

 

"Nothing in this Act affects ... any other act or practice of a body established to propagate religion that conforms to the doctrines of that religion or is necessary to avoid injury to the religious susceptibilities of the adherents of that religion."
