This case required the AIRC to make a determination of section 89A � Allowable Award Matters � of the Workplace Relations Act 1996 , the federal industrial relations legislation of the newly elected Howard government. Before this time, the AIRC had conciliated and arbitrated industrial disputes to produce federal awards containing a comprehensive array of employment ...
The AIRC replaced a previous system of industrial courts, which broadly speaking, was engaged in the same functions, but with superior independence and powers than the AIRC.

$220 Million, 300-Worker Queensland Coalmine Will Tap One of ...

In reality, it has proven to be a mechanism for ensuring that workers on low wages undertake no independent struggle to improve their situation. Despite the fact that every year the IRC hands down amounts that are far short of even the pittances ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

As they prepare to face each other in Sunday's debate, neither can be completely satisfied with their policy performance. He has looked unconvincing on workplace relations; she sounded hollow on population. Abbott had to combat the impression that he would bring back WorkChoices, so he promised on the campaign's opening day that a Coalition government would not amend Labor's industrial relations legislation in its ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The trial of South Australian construction worker, Ark Tribe, on charges of refusing to answer questions from the federal Labor government’s building industry watchdog, resumed yesterday in the Adelaide Magistrates Court. Hundreds of workers in Adelaide, about 2,000 in Sydney and a similar number in Melbourne rallied in support of Tribe, who faces up to six months in jail.

They marched through the city, from the Sydney Town Hall, to the offices of the Barangaroo project’s head contractor, Bovis Lend Lease. market trends, news research and surveys resources
