Enterprise agreements are collective agreements between employers and workers on employment conditions. The Fair Labour Commission can provide information on the process of drafting enterprise agreements, evaluate and approve agreements. We can also deal with disputes over the terms of the agreements. If you are looking and can`t reach an agreement, our member-led negotiating team has been meeting with management for more than three months. Together, we presented TNT with a plan to reach a safe and fair agreement. Fair Work Commission publishes enterprise agreements on this website. Management has now come to the table with an agreement that meets many of our requirements. Start with our document search and try to search for full-text chords. An increase, an employment contract, an enterprise agreement or any other registered agreement cannot provide for conditions below the national minimum wage or the NES. You can`t exclude the NES. The information and instruments are available on the Commission`s website to support an agreement. Visit an agreement for more details.
Business agreements can be tailored to the needs of some companies. An agreement should be overall better for an employee when compared to the corresponding bonuses or rewards. For the most part, National Employment Standards (NES) 10 are minimum employment rights that must be granted to all workers. The national minimum wage and the NES are the minimum rights for workers in Australia. Yard meetings will soon be held across the country to ensure that you and your co-workers will have a say in the agreement that is on the table. Modern rewards cover an entire sector or profession and provide a safety net between minimum wage rates and employment conditions. In the meantime, you can talk to your TWU delegate or official to learn more about the offer. Click on the image below to see how the TNT chord stacks up.
If you receive help to understand the minimum wage and the conditions that apply to you, contact the Ombudsman for fair work. Please note that all employers are required to provide a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement to new employees when they start working. From 1 January 2010, employers and workers will be covered by national employment standards under the national system. Click here for a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement.
