The consultation period on the Transition Management Plan (TMP) for Service NSW Staff staff affected by the Machinery of Government changes that see staff currently employed under the Service NSW Salaries and Conditions 2018 Employees Award are underway and close this Wednesday 11 September 2019.
The PSA notes that a number of staff on the Service NSW Award will be significantly affected by being transitioned onto the Crown Employees (Public Sector – Salaries 2019) Award, Administrative and Clerical Officers classifications.
The PSA encourages members to utilise the current consultation phase of not only the TMP but also the subsequent Restructure-Resource Management Plan (RMP) for their associated area.
Such things you may want to take into consideration may be:
- Impact on your superannuation (please check with your super fund),
- Likelihood of suitable reemployment outside of the current restructure processes.
The PSA wants to make it clear to members that they will not be required to make a decision until such time that they have an understanding of the resulting RMP for their new area in DCS Corporate Services.
Members will have a further opportunity to provide feedback into the consultation on the RMP when that process begins.
While the initial focus of consultation is with affected staff, the PSA believes that it is reasonable to include all members on Service NSW Salaries and Conditions Employees Award 2018 who may be at a later date subject to a similar transition to have an opportunity for feedback.
