The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) recently signed a new enterprise agreement for the period 2016-19. This agreement outlines the terms and conditions of employment for AEC employees and provides a framework for fair and equitable compensation.

One of the key features of the agreement is the provision for a 2% salary increase for all AEC employees. This increase is in line with other public sector salary increases and takes into account the rising cost of living.

The agreement also includes provisions for flexible working arrangements, such as job sharing and flexible hours. This helps to promote work-life balance for employees and can improve productivity and job satisfaction.

Another important feature of the enterprise agreement is the inclusion of provisions for staff training and development. The AEC recognizes that ongoing professional development is essential to maintaining a skilled and knowledgeable workforce and has committed to supporting staff in this area.

The agreement also includes provisions for leave entitlements, such as annual leave, personal leave and parental leave. This ensures that employees have access to adequate leave entitlements and can balance their work and personal responsibilities.

In addition to these provisions, the enterprise agreement also outlines the AEC`s commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. This includes provisions for workplace health and safety, as well as supporting employees with disabilities or other health issues.

Overall, the Australian Electoral Commission enterprise agreement 2016-19 provides a comprehensive framework for fair and equitable employment for AEC employees. This agreement demonstrates the AEC`s commitment to supporting its workforce and ensuring that its employees are able to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
