Fair Work Commission publishes enterprise agreements on this website. Benefits for workers under the new enterprise agreement include annual wage increases, a new mobility premium, higher overtime rates and night work allowances, as well as more parental leave. If the agreement is approved, it will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for formal approval. Enterprise bargaining sets parameters for labour costs, flexibility in management and decision-making – areas crucial to the efficient functioning of organizations. If SASs are correct, not only will costly errors be avoided, but positive results will also be achieved for employers and workers for the duration of the agreement. The experience of our labour relations advisors has shown that clarifying organizational objectives provides companies with the first platform to achieve the results they seek in negotiations. It may be worth encouraging important collaborators who can add real value to the discussions. Unfortunately, this does not happen often enough, as many companies view negotiations on business as a trade union matter, which is not the case. While union representatives are often able to participate in negotiations, there are less than 16% of unions in Australia and only 11% in the private sector.
