Your Custodial Corrections Award

Posted on March 8, 2016

We are aware that your employer recently advised you that the Modernised Correctional Employees Award – State 2015 will apply in four months.

Please be assured that this is the safety net for your conditions.  Your Certified Agreement (also known as an Enterprise Agreement or Collective Agreement) is currently being negotiated - this can and will provide for superior conditions of employment to your award safety net.

At this time there is no suggestion from your employer that they are seeking to reduce your conditions.

The union office has not finalised or agreed to a new agreement and as always we will brief you throughout our negotiations with the employer, so that you know exactly what is happening.

Once negotiations progress to a stage where we have an offer for a new agreement, we will seek from all members their view on the proposed agreement. However, we are not yet at that stage.

If you have any questions please email
