With Brett Peters…

Vice President

11.1 The parties agree to enable employees covered under this Award, to participate in job share arrangements where possible. The intention of the parties is to improve employee retention rates by providing more flexible patterns of work through job share arrangements, with particular emphasis on:

a) employees contemplating a reduction in working hours prior to retirement; and

b) employees needing to balance work commitments and family responsibilities.

11.2 Job share arrangements must be agreed to by the employees’ manager and documented in writing.

11.3 A job share arrangement will lapse in the event that either one of the participants returns to full time work, transfers to another line of work or position, or exits State Transit.
