“But the government`s wage policy, if implemented, means a reduction in real wages for the majority of doctors in the health care system and well below the consumer price index for some doctors, and that must be taken into account. Specialized industrial advice and resources, including copies of negotiated amA (AV) industrial agreements and private practice bulletins, are available on the resource pages. We are the only organization that can collectively negotiate on behalf of physicians employed in the VA health care system to determine the terms and conditions of employment for physicians in training and incumbents. With the support of members, we remain responsible for the negotiations on the public health system – Medical Practitioners – AMA Industrial Agreement 2016. Open to all VA doctors. Participate personally or online via Zoom. More information and registration details: WADA (WA) also supports the Western Australian Branch of the Australian Federation of Medical Agents (ASMOF), which is an organization registered under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Registered Organisation) and promotes the interests of employed physicians, grants its members industrial representation in federal labour tribunals and negotiates employment contracts with employers. Union: WADA Victoria and the Australian Federation of Medical Officers of the Salaried (Victorian Branch) both have coverage for doctors employed in Victoria. But the Australian Medical Association has recently begun negotiations on the next three-year contract for hospital doctors, and The Weekend West understands that the proposed salary increases are in the order of 2.5 per cent a year.
Other conditions of state grant: unrecognized (not the transfer of other leave rights without written agreement) The employment of doctors in training in Australia will sometimes vary considerably from country to country. Physicians-in-training are not employed by a Commonwealth employer such as the Department of Health and Ageing and often have to alternate between different employers in the state and territory as part of their training. This has led WADA`s regional and local authorities to develop, in collaboration with WADA`s Federal Labour Office, a guide that provides basic information to this group of collaborators. It is important to note that this is not a complete industrial instrument and should not be used as a substitute for individual industrial orientation. This document is designed as a guide that will help physicians-in-training understand different government systems and be armed with questions and instructions to obtain more information. AMA/ASMOF subsidiaries are able to provide members with copies of relevant information and answer specific industry questions.
