Labour Relations Minister Bill Johnston said the government respects the excellent work of the police. “The way the door is shown to our MPs and omitted in the cold when they are medically unfit is a disgrace. We are working on a model that will look after all police officers and present it at our annual conference in November,” concluded Mr. Tilbury. In a press release today, Mr. Arnott also took a stab in the back of the government for “police victories.” The latest list of the latest public sector awards and agreements in Western Australia can be find on the Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission website. “The proposed agreement is ongoing and we hope that members of the police union will be put to a vote in the near future. Mr Tilbury said the next challenge for the EU would be to ensure that all police officers are taken care of, especially those who are out of work. Below is a list of active public sector awards and agreements. This list is maintained by public sector labour relations.

At a press conference on Thursday, Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said police were “entitled to a fair wage.” “Just because we didn`t give in to the demands of the VA Police Union doesn`t mean we`re a bully or disrespectful to police officers,” Johnston said. The dispute between the State Government and the police union is referred to the Labour Relations Board for settlement. The VA`s Chief Police Officer has become involved in the debate on improving the pay of police officers as negotiations for a new industrial agreement continue. “I am pleased that we have reached an agreement in principle with the VA police union. Western Australian police will receive a $1,000 pay increase during the COVID 19 pandemic until the broader issue of the industrial agreement is resolved, but the union says it is a “cheap political stunt.” The government has agreed on the principle of its recent offer to negotiate an industrial agreement with the Western Australian Police Union. “Ideally, both sides would be able to reach an agreement.” “This is a positive step towards an agreement with the VA police union.” The union has launched a new promotional campaign to gain more public support, as negotiations for a new labour agreement result in mediation within the VA`s Industrial Relations Committee. “We need to work together in this time of crisis, and this pay increase shows that we appreciate our police officers and the incredible work they do,” Prime Minister Mark McGowan said Thursday.
