"The CBA has always tried to communicate regularly and openly with unions on this issue. Unions have never had any concrete doubts about the under-remuneration of casual workers in previous negotiations on labour agreements in 2016. Had such an assertion been made, the CBA would have reviewed it, as it did in November 2018. Companies are frequently used to remedy technical failures in an agreement (for example. B if a nominal expiry date is more than 4 years after the date of authorization or when a provision to exclude or reduce a provision of the NES is expressed). It is not acceptable for companies to address certain deficiencies such as non-compliance with flexibility and consultation conditions. Before accepting a commitment, the Commission must seek the opinion of anyone whom the Commission knows has the right to negotiate the agreement.  A bargaining representative may be the employer (or a person appointed by the employer), a workers` organization representing a worker covered by the agreement or a person appointed as such by a worker. The Commission may require negotiators to prove that the commitment has been made available to negotiators.
The Commission may, for example, ask the Commission to review the emails of negotiators confirming that they approve the commitments. 3. The second paragraph of Article 3.1 of the amended agreement must be deleted and replaced with the following text: Note that each agreement is considered independently and that the terms of an agreement are assessed globally. The following commitments may not be enough to allay a member`s concerns about other agreements. "The CBA reiterates its apologies for the underpayment of casuals," the spokesperson said. "The CBA recently renegotiated its enterprise agreement with the workers, the KPdSU [Community and Public Sector Union] and the MEAA, with an emphasis on the redundancy clause, and no issues were raised during these abc methodology negotiations. According to the PCSU report, ten events should have triggered wage controls. In 2016 and 2019, abC and union negotiated new enterprise agreements, when the CBA reviewed the ABC price in 2016, when the casual charge was increased in November 2016, and when wage increases were processed annually for six years. The following commitments were accepted by the Commissioners to accommodate requests for approval of business agreements.
Instead of accepting an obligation that takes into account a particular concern about a related issue, an effective remedy may be to insert a "NES priority clause" stipulating that in the event of a contradiction between a provision of the agreement and the NES, the most advantageous clause applies. If the Commission is concerned that an enterprise agreement will not meet the licensing requirements set out in the Ss.186 and 187 of the Fair Work Act (including the adoption of the BOOT), the Commission may approve the agreement if it accepts a written commitment from the employer (s) that is covered by the agreement corresponding to that request.  The obligation is for the employer to comply with the written provisions in the company in addition to or in lieu of the duration of the agreement. The company is part of the agreement and is legally binding on the employer.  The spokesperson stated that the CBA`s approach was consistent with a clause in the enterprise agreement that states that "… The other provisions of this agreement, which may apply to part-time workers, apply on a pro-rata basis… ».
