VITS Pay Up

VITS Pay Up

Pay fair minimum rates on all jobs and transparent back pay for government jobs

Why is this important?

Translators and Interpreters Australia won funding for higher rates on Vic government interpreting jobs in July last year. VITS is the Victorian government owned interpreting agency, but they refuse to pay the higher rates on all Vic government funded work. They have paid back the wages they stole from individuals on a handful of occasions and then went back to underpaying them!

Without interpreters our diverse community wouldn’t be able to access services like health, education and courts. They deserve better than dodgy treatment from VITS Language Loop.

How it will be delivered

In person at VITS offices


Reasons for signing

  • Higher pay rates, free parking, long service leave
  • I believe in a just society, and as interpreters we play an important role in that, and deserve to be remunerated accordingly.
  • We deserve to be treated with more respect and given more consideration
