Enterprise Bargaining Guide

The APSC Workplace Relations Group has developed a three-part Guide to Enteprise Bargaining to assist Commonwealth agencies through the enterprise bargaining process. This Guide was developed as part of the Workplace Relations Capability Program.

Part 1 of the Guide was published on 18 July 2018. Part 1 covers matters to be considered prior to enterprise bargaining commencing. Parts 2 and 3 of the Guide were published on 20 December 2018. Part 2 covers the enterprise bargaining process and Part 3 covers the period after enterprise bargaining has concluded.

The Fair Work Commission publishes technical guidance on enterprise bargaining. This includes a benchbook on enterprise bargaining which is available on the Fair Work Commission website.

The Fair Work Commission also publishes a benchbook on industrial action, which is available from the  Fair Work Commission website.

If you are a human resource or workplace relations practitioner in a Commonwealth public sector agency and want more information about the Workplace Relations Capability Program, contact WR.Capability [at] apsc.gov.au
