In September 2023, councils were given the opportunity to join the Local Government Fair Jobs Code Advisory Committee.

Chaired by Local Government Victoria (LGV), the Committee has been established to drive and monitor the development and implementation of the Local Government Jobs Code.

The Committee comprises:

Local Government Victoria (LGV)Ararat Rural City Council
Industrial Relations Victoria (IRV)City of Greater Dandenong
Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV)Colac Otway Shire Council
Local Government Professionals Inc (LGPro)Hepburn Shire Council
Australian Services Union (ASU)Hume City Council
Professionals Australia (PA)Kingston City Council
Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF)Monash City Council
 Yarra Ranges Council
Stage 1 implementation will commence following Government endorsement of the key features of the Code. After which, the Department of Government Services will broaden engagement to the local government sector and other key stakeholders.
The eight member councils will undertake Stage 1 implementation and provide feedback to the Committee prior to the Code being rolled out to all councils. The Committee will continue to advise LGV until full implementation of the Code in 2025.
