Approved Enterprise Agreements

A Greenfields agreement is a company agreement entered into in respect of a new business of the employer or employer before employing workers. This can be either a single company agreement or a multi-company agreement. The parties to a Greenfields agreement are the employer (or employer in an agreement involving several companies in the green grasslands) and one or more relevant workers` organizations (usually a trade union). An employer is not required to negotiate an EA with workers or a union if it does not wish to do so. However, if an employer refuses to bargain formally, it is up to the workers (usually through their union) to withdraw or ask the FWC for a formal vote to support the bargaining process between the workers. If a majority of workers vote in favour of company negotiations, the FWC will adopt a majority support provision and the employer will then be required to negotiate in good faith. Employees are also allowed to request orders from the FWC authorizing the implementation of trade union actions (e.g. B strike or a work campaign as a rule). Once an application has been approved or rejected, it is no longer listed below. To find an agreement that has been approved or modified, please find an agreement. There is no simple solution in which an employer files the wrong version of a company agreement and approves the FWC1. The employer must appeal the decision approving the company agreement, submit the agreement to another vote and again request that the agreement be approved.

Alternatively, a single company agreement may be a “greenfields agreement”.
