DHBs reached a final agreement in principle with the PSA on the Clerical and Administration claim in December 2021.

Once finalised, the new agreement will apply to almost 10,000 clerical and administration workers across the country’s 20 DHBs – union and non-union members.

Initial Agreement

The agreement included:

  • Maximum rates for a new national pay structure to be developed over the next six months (see Stage 1: New national roles and maximum pay rates below)
  • A $2,500 interim lift in pay rates for all DHB clerical and administration workers who currently receive less than the agreed maximum job band rate. This lift in pay rates was effective as of 30 November 2020.
  • Agreed Pay Design Principles for PSA and DHBs to use in developing a new national pay rate and job band structure.
  • A work programme to develop a national pay rate and job banding structure.

Stage 1: New national roles and maximum pay rates

 At this stage, only the new top rates for each role profile has been agreed. 

Stage 2: Finalising the Pay Equity Settlement

The PSA and DHBs will apply a set of agreed Pay Design Principles to develop a national pay rate and job band structure. That will include the size and number of steps in each band and how people progress up the pay scale.

PSA and DHBs will also agree a process for translating people on to the new national pay structure.

The size of any individual increases won’t be known until the pay equity settlement has been agreed.

Because pay rates for clerical and administration work vary so widely, the size of any final increases will vary significantly between roles and DHBs.
