Salary Sacrificing in the New Country Health Structure | Update

30 May 2019

The PSA has heard concerns from members across Country Health about the security of access to salary sacrificing arrangements under the devolved health model.

The PSA has continued to raise this issue with management, including at the Country Health Industrial Relations Forum. Most recently we have been informed that the Department is seeking a tax ruling about this.

Members need clarity about this issue as soon as possible as implementation of the new structure is now only weeks away. The PSA has written to the Chief Executive Officer to seek an urgent response. A copy of our letter is here.

PSA is continuing to visit worksites in Country Health to discuss the implications of the proposed new structure and also listen to members’ views. If you have any comments or questions, please contact PSA.
