The PSA and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) are in dispute in relation to the non-enforcement of the current Workload Weighting Agreement. The PSA is now aware that without consultation with the union, the ODPP is moving ahead with implementing its new Workload Management System on Monday, 22 March 2021. The PSA is back in the Industrial Relations Commission (IRC) on Tuesday, 23 March 2021. The PSA is very concerned about the implementation of the new system as there will be at least a 20 per cent increase in workload in comparison to the existing agreement.
The PSA is seeking an undertaking from the ODPP that the new system will not be implemented until consultation has occurred. The PSA is aware that many members are currently struggling with their workload and the new system will be a disaster for the work, health and safety of members.
We will update members after the IRC report back.
