St Vincent's Care Services: FWC approves your new Enterprise Agreement

Recently the Fair Work Commission approved your new St Vincent’s Care Services NSW Enterprise Agreement. This means that your new agreement is now in operation and is enforceable by the HSU for all HSU members.

The Commission approved the agreement after St Vincent’s Care was required to make additional commitments to ensure the agreement met the legal requirements for approval, including:

  • Increased pay rates for CSE Grade 2 – Level II;
  • Night shift penalties now applicable for shifts commencing from 4pm.

You can find a copy of the new agreement at this link. Your agreement outlines your rights and conditions at work, so please have a read of it and keep a copy for yourself. If you have any questions, HSU members can contact their union organiser or the Member Service Division for assistance.

Your next pay increase?

Your agreement includes a 2.25% pay increase from the first pay period after 1 July 2021. All HSU members should check their pay in July and make sure that you have received this increase.

If you do not receive your pay increase and you think you may have missed out, please contact the union so that we can follow up for you.

Staying strong and united

The HSU continues to fight for significantly better pay across the whole aged care industry. The HSU is leading a major case in the Fair Work Commission for a 25% increase to the Aged Care Award.

If your colleagues are not yet HSU members, please encourage them to join up today either online at or by calling 1300 478 679.
