Private for profit and not-for-profit aged care EBA

Get a involved and help secure a better deal for nurses, midwives and personal care workers


This year ANMF will be renegotiating wages, workloads and conditions for Victorian nurses and personal care workers employed in more than 500 private for-profit and not-for-profit nursing homes across the state.

If you believe aged care nurses and personal care workers should be valued, recognised and rewarded for the important work participate in your campaign activities, meetings and decisions and encourage your colleagues to join ANMF. Updates about the general aged care campaign and individual campaigns will be published below.

Two key factors determine how your employer will respond to your claims for improved wages and conditions. One is the level of Federal Government funding. The other you have more control over and that's how involved you and other nurses and personal care workers are at your workplace.

Bupa Aged Care

ANMF began negotiations with Bupa Aged Care management in August 2016. The agreement expired on 31 October 2016. The last pay rise was 1.75 per cent in April 2016. In June 2017, Bupa nurses and personal care workers voted NO to Bupa's proposed agreement of a 2.3 per cent pay rise in a one-year agreement with no other improvements. Members have also rejected Bupa's most recent offer of two 2.5 per cent wage rises in a two-year agreement (but would effectively be the only pay rise in almost three years and then negotiations would start again) Ninety two per cent of Bupa nurses and carers who participated in recent a protected industrial action ballot voted YES.
