Read the full story here. Registered contracts apply until they are terminated or replaced. The Federation of Independent Schools has informed the union that it does not intend to meet with the union again by November, and it is not certain that new enterprise agreements will be negotiated. The AIS also states that wage increases in 2021, if any, would be set on a discretionary basis outside the bargaining process. If your employer is about to enter into negotiations for a new agreement and has issued a communication on representation rights, you should immediately contact your ETU organizer for further instructions before taking action. ETU members are not required to appoint someone as part of the representation rights notification process, if you want the union to represent you during the negotiations, you should refer them immediately to your organiser. Agreements that are once certified form the basis of members` working conditions and are a useful resource for members, if you wish to have a copy of your work agreement, please complete the application form below: An enterprise agreement cannot be concluded with a single employee. There are different types of business agreements. A “Greenfields Agreement” is the term used to describe an enterprise agreement for a new company that is in the process of being created and does not yet employ the staff who will work in the company.

When an enterprise agreement is entered into by one or more employers linked to each other, the enterprise agreement is called an “individual enterprise agreement.” Enterprise agreements between several non-employers that are not related to each other are referred to as “multi-company agreements.” Workers may only be covered by an enterprise agreement at some point in their employment with an employer. The list of enterprise agreements under national labour laws is available here. The Union has met with the Association of Independent Schools (AIS) to discuss our ambitions and we have scheduled further meetings. The EU is aiming for a three-year contract which is due to start on 1 January 2021. The Fair Labour Commission, which manages the national labour relations system, must then approve enterprise agreements. An enterprise agreement must pass a “best overall test” before it can be approved. This test requires workers to do better than existing premiums, in accordance with the agreement. An Australian Labour Agreement (AWA) was a kind of formalized individual contract negotiated between an employer and a worker in Australia that existed from 1996 to 2009. Employers could propose an AWA as a condition of employment. They were registered by labour counsel and did not require a dispute resolution procedure.

These agreements only worked at the federal level. The AWAs were individual written agreements on the conditions of employment between the employer and the worker in Australia, in accordance with the 1996 Labour Relations Act. An AWA could repeal conditions of employment in national or territorial laws, with the exception of those relating to occupational health protection, workers` compensation or training agreements.
