The federal Department of Industry, Innovation & Science may use a clause in the Public Service Act that allows departmental secretaries to make determinations about pay and conditions, so long as there is no loss to the benefits of staff. Civil servants are being asked to vote on whether they want the Department to make such a determination, which would see the terms of their current enterprise agreement maintained, or to enter into a new bargaining process with the Community & Public Sector Union. The CPSU wants staff to vote against the determination proposal.
