The benchmarking dispute was heard in the Industrial Relations Commission on 13 November 2017 before Commissioner Newall.
The PSA was represented by our solicitor and there were representatives from the NCDC, POVB, COVB and SEAG present.
The Commissioner agreed that our concerns were valid and spent over two hours in discussion with the PSA and Corrective Services.
As a result, the Commissioner has directed the parties to hold meetings and report back on progress on 30 November 2017 when he has set aside several hours for further conciliation.
Before 30 November, there will be meetings to discuss:
- OSP issues including supervision and specialist programs
- Cyclic rostering
- Weekend staffing and responsibilities
- Re-evaluation of the Senior Correctional Officer position
- Case management allowance
Delegates and PSA staff will attend all of these meetings and we will report back to members when there is specific information, most likely after the hearing on 30 November.
If you have any questions please feed them back through your respective delegates.
