Fair Work Commission publishes enterprise agreements on this website. Enterprise agreements must not contain illegal content (for example. B discriminatory or offensive conditions). In addition, a worker`s bargaining representative who is covered by the agreement cannot conduct standard negotiations on the agreement. Typical negotiations are those where a negotiator represents two or more proposed enterprise agreements and wants to enter into joint agreements with two or more employers. However, it is not a standard negotiation if the negotiator is really trying to reach an agreement. Greenfields agreements are permitted where workers` organizations covered by the agreement have the right to represent the interests of the majority of workers, which is in the public interest.

On the one hand, collective agreements benefit at least in principle employers, as they improve “flexibility” in areas such as normal hours, flat-rate hourly wage rates and benefit conditions. On the other hand, collective agreements benefit workers, since they generally offer higher wages, bonuses, additional leave and higher rights (such as redundancy pay) than a bonus.
