Negotiating Eba Agreements


A company agreement exists between one or more national employers and their employees, as provided for in the agreement. Company agreements are negotiated in good faith by the parties, in particular at company level. According to the Fair Work Act 2009, a business can mean any type of activity, activity, project or business. Company negotiations are usually the process of negotiation between the employer, workers and their negotiators with the aim of concluding a company agreement. The Fair Work Act 2009 sets out a number of clear rules and obligations on how this process is to take place, including the rules for negotiation, the content of company agreements and how an agreement is concluded and approved. In addition, a negotiating representative of a worker covered by the agreement may not conduct standard negotiations concerning the agreement. Typical negotiations are cases where a negotiator represents two or more proposed company agreements and seeks to conclude joint agreements with two or more employers. However, these are not standard negotiations if the negotiator is actually trying to reach an agreement. The parties approve the proposed company agreements between them (in the case of workers, the matter is put to the vote).

The Fair Work Commission then evaluates them for approval. (Under the Fair Work Act 2009, agreements have been renamed “Company Agreements” and are submitted to the Fair Work Commission to assess claims against modern public procurement and verify breaches of the law.)

At this time, we see that, looking at the Fair Work Board`s decision, wage increases have clearly been 1.75% for 2020. And it was delayed. So they had some increases on the first of July, some on the first of November and others on the first of February. Therefore, if you go to a company agreement with higher increases, there is a reasonable chance that you can conclude a longer contract term in order to guarantee obvious costs, etc. And I ask companies to think too, do you know what could be increases in 2021-2022? As far as the Fair Work Commission is concerned, how will the offer you are going to present be compared to that? And, you know, can we now get a reasonable result longer if we get a shorter result that could then lead to higher potential increases? So, a series of reflections to think about….
