The Victorian Disability Service (NGO) Agreement 2019 (MEA) has been approved by the Fair Work Commission and you have a new enterprise agreement! Negotiations on the Multi-Employer Disability Services (MEA) agreement are nearing completion. Unions and employer representatives (under jobs Australia)`s leadership are working on this and are in talks with the Victorian government to secure transitional funding to support the new rules. If your organization employs support staff as part of a housing assistance staff agreement or a day worker agreement, the MEA should help you move to employment agreements that are more suited to the NDIS environment.
The proposed MEA also has benefits that employers who employ support agents under the SCHADS award should benefit from. The industrial agreement is a sectoral package that depends on the Victorian government`s transitional funding to cover the one-time costs for Victoria and support a skilled and stable workforce for the future. Any guaranteed funding should be limited to employers who are parties to the MEA.
