Client success story
We assisted a large national employer in the drafting, negotiation and approval of a multi-union workplace agreement which covers over 30,000 of its employees. This included advising how to commence the process in accordance with legislative requirements, its dealings with the relevant unions (including the tensions developing between the unions) and the content of the agreement.
We also helped our client plan out the complex steps it needed to take in order to put the agreement to a vote and to have it successfully approved by Fair Work Australia.
The agreement was subsequently approved without the need for a formal hearing. Our client has ensured that it has certainty both for itself and for its employees in relation to their terms and conditions of employment.
