Victoria Police say they could take industrial action as early as next week, unless a spend deal is reached with the State Government.
The Police Association has provided formal notice of the action, following months of negotiations.
“We’re committed to try and attain agreement by the end of the week,” Police Association Victoria Secretary Ron Iddles said.
“If that’s profitable then there won’t be industrial action but the membership have voted overwhelmingly to support industrial action which would commence on Monday.”
Members want a five per cent spend rise more than three years, as nicely as penalty prices for weekends and public holidays.
Mr Iddles stated the proposed actions have been designed to hurt Government income, not the public.
“We would park marked cars at speed camera sites, not situation penalty notices. That’ll have a key effect financially on the Government,” he said.
“The final enterprise bargaining round, it was costing the Government about $ 11 million a week in lost revenue from speed camera fines.”
