Enterprise Bargaining Guide
Agencies should note the ASPC Bargaining Guide is currently under review. Particular bargaining arrangements are in place for APS agencies. If you have any questions about the APS-wide bargaining process please contact the Workplace Relations Bargaining Taskforce at email@example.com. If you have questions about bargaining in non-APS agencies please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The APSC Workplace Relations Group has developed a three-part Guide to Enterprise Bargaining to assist Commonwealth agencies through the enterprise bargaining process. This Guide was developed as part of the Workplace Relations Capability Program.
Part 1 of the Guide was published on 18 July 2018. Part 1 covers matters to be considered prior to enterprise bargaining commencing. Parts 2 and 3 of the Guide were published on 20 December 2018. Part 2 covers the enterprise bargaining process and Part 3 covers the period after enterprise bargaining has concluded.
The Fair Work Commission publishes technical guidance on enterprise bargaining. This includes a benchbook on enterprise bargaining which is available on the Fair Work Commission website.
The Fair Work Commission also publishes a benchbook on industrial action, which is available from the Fair Work Commission website.
