Upcoming industrial relations change

Prime Minister Tony Abbott has said that the government’s plan for industrial relations reforms is to stick with the changes to workplace laws that it promised in the 2013 election.

This week, parliament will receive a bill to give effect to the Coalition’s proposed Fair Work Act changes and will announce details of a Productivity Commission review of the Act.

The law changes will impose new limits on union officials’ access to workplaces and ensure that the setting of Greenfield agreements on pay and conditions for workers on new major projects is sped up.

They will also ensure that enterprise agreements cannot restrict the use of individual flexibility arrangements (IFAs) which are currently allowed under the Fair Work system.
