Bargaining deal struck ahead of summit – Michael West

The peak body for unions and small business representatives have struck a deal on workplace reform ahead of the federal government’s jobs and skills summit.

The Australian Council of Trade Unions and Council of Small Businesses Australia (COSBOA) have agreed to work together to simplify and reduce complexities within the current industrial relations system. 

This includes a pledge to support new options for collective bargaining, proposed by the ACTU last week, which would enable multiple workplaces to work together to strike deals with employees.

Supporting a simpler form of the “better off overall test” in fair work laws is also part of the agreement.
