Enterprise Bargaining: Trade unions and the law
OverviewThis book explores the changes in all jurisdictions in Australia to the primary industrial relations statutes which established work place negotiations as the dominant location of industrial relations practice. In addition, it seeks to assess their impact on trade unionism and the future of employment regulation. The chapters include commentaries on the various systems of work place bargaining in Australia and critical assessments of the industrial and social impact of these new laws. Primary emphasis is given to federal law and the changes introduced by the Industrial Relations Reform Act 1993 (Cth) though contributors also refer to various aspects of State systems.
