2A. - AWARD MODERNISATION

(1) The parties are committed to modernising the terms of the Award so that it provides for more flexible working arrangements, improves the quality of working life, enhances skills and job satisfaction and assists positively in the restructuring process.

(2) The parties commit themselves to the following principles as part of the structural efficiency process and have agreed to participate in a testing process in accordance with the provisions of this clause.

(a) Acceptance in principle that the new Award skill level definitions will be more suitable for the needs of the industry, sometimes more broadly based, in other matters more truly reflective of the different skill levels of the tasks now performed, but which shall incorporate the ability for an employee to perform a wider range of duties where appropriate.

(b) The parties will create a genuine career path for employees which allows advancement based on industry accreditation and access to training.

(c) Co-operation in the transition from the old structure to the new structure in an orderly manner without creating false expectations or disputations.

2B. - STRUCTURAL EFFICIENCY EXERCISE

(1) (a) An employer may direct an employee to carry out such duties as are within the limits of the employee's skill, competence and training consistent with the classification structure of this award provided that such duties are not designed to promote de-skilling.

(b) Any direction issued by an employer shall be consistent with the employer's responsibilities to provide a safe and healthy work environment.

(2) The parties to this award are committed to co-operating positively to increase the efficiency, productivity and international competitiveness of the industry and to enhance the career opportunities and job security of employees within the industry.

(3) The parties have established working parties for the testing and/or trialling of various skill levels and to enable proper consultation with both employees and employers in the industry on matters consistent with the objectives of subclause (2) herein.

(4) Measures raised for consideration consistent with subclause (3) herein shall be related to implementation of a new classification structure, any facilitative provisions contained in this award and matters concerning training.

(5) Without limiting the rights of either an employer or a Union to arbitration, any other measure designed to increase flexibility on a site or within an enterprise sought by any party shall be implemented subject to the following requirements:

  • the changes sought shall not affect provisions reflecting National standards;

  • The majority of employees affected by the change at the site or enterprise must genuinely agree to the change;

  • no employee shall lose income as a result of the change;

  • the relevant Union or Unions must be a party to the agreement;

  • any agreement shall be subject, where appropriate, to approval by the Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission and, if approved, shall operate as a Schedule to this Award and take precedence over any provision of this award to the extent of any inconsistency.

(6) Award restructuring shall be given its wider meaning, and award restructuring should not be confined to the restructuring of classifications but may extend to the review of other restrictive provisions which currently operate. To that end, such restrictive provisions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.

(7) The parties to this award recognise that in order to increase the efficiency, productivity and international competitiveness of industry, a greater commitment to training and skill development is required. Accordingly, the parties commit themselves to:

(a) develop a more highly skilled workforce;

(b) providing employees with career opportunities through appropriate training to acquire additional skills; and

(c) removing barriers to the utilisation of skills acquired.

(8) At each plant or enterprise a consultative mechanism may be established by the employer or shall be established upon request by the employees. The consultative mechanism and procedure shall be appropriate to the size, structure and needs of the plant or enterprise. Measures raised for consideration shall be consistent with subclause (2) of this clause.

(a) Subject to further order of the Commission an employee whose employment is terminated for reasons set out in paragraph (a) of subclause (2) of this clause, shall be entitled to the following amount of severance pay in respect of a continuous period of service.

Period of Continuous Service
Severance Pay


Less than 1 year
Nil
1 year but less than 2 years
4 weeks
2 years but less than 3 years
6 weeks
3 years but less than 4 years
7 weeks
4 years and over
8 weeks

“Weeks pay” means the ordinary weekly rate of wage for the employee concerned.

Provided that the severance payment shall not exceed the amount which the employee would have earned if employment with the employer had proceeded to the employee’s normal retirement date.

(b) For the purpose of this clause continuity of service shall not be broken on account of:

(i) any interruption or termination of the employment by the employer if such interruption or termination has been made merely with the intention of avoiding obligations hereunder in respect of leave of absence;

(ii) any absence from work on account of personal sickness or accident for which an employee is entitled to claim sick pay as prescribed by this award or on account of leave lawfully granted by the employer; or

(iii) any absence with reasonable cause, proof whereof shall be upon the employee;

Provided that in the calculation of continuous service under this subclause any time in respect of which an employee is absent from work except time for which an employee is entitled to claim annual leave, sick pay, long service leave and public holidays as prescribed by this award shall not count as time worked.

(c) Service by the employee with a business which has been transmitted from one employer to another and the employee’s service has been deemed continuous in accordance with subclause (3) of Clause 2 of the Long Service Leave Provisions published in Volume 66 of the Western Australian Industrial Gazette at pages 1-4 shall also constitute continuous service for the purpose of this clause.

6) Employee Leaving During Notice

An employee whose employment is to be terminated for reasons set out in paragraph (a) of subclause (2) of this clause may terminate employment during the period of notice and if so shall be entitled to the same benefits and payments under this clause had the employee remained with the employer until the expiry of such notice. Provided that in such circumstances the employee shall not be entitled to payment in lieu of notice.

(7) Alternative Employment

An employer, in a particular redundancy case, may make application to the Commission to have the general severance pay prescription varied if the employer obtains acceptable alternative employment for an employee.

(8) Time Off During Notice Period

(a) During the period of notice of termination of employment given by an employer, an employee whose employment is to be terminated for reasons set out in paragraph (a) of subclause (2) of this clause shall, for the purpose of seeking other employment, be entitled to be absent from work during each week of notice up to a maximum of eight ordinary hours without dedication of pay.

(b) If the employee has been allowed paid leave for more than one day during the notice period for the purpose of seeking other employment, the employee shall, at the request of the employer, be required to produce proof of attendance at an interview or the employee shall not receive payment for the time absent. For this purpose a statutory declaration will be sufficient.

(9) Superannuation Benefits

(a) Subject to further order of the Commission, where an employee who is terminated receives a benefit from a superannuation scheme, the employee shall only receive under subclause (5) of this clause the difference between the severance pay specified in that subclause and the amount of the superannuation benefit the employee receives which is attributable to employer contributions only.

(b) If the superannuation benefit is greater than the amount due under subclause (5) of this clause then the employee shall receive no payment under that subclause.

(c) Provided that benefits arising directly or indirectly from contributions made by an employer in accordance with an award, agreement or order made or registered under the Industrial Relations Act 1979, shall not be taken into account unless the Commission so orders in a particular case.

(10) Employees with Less Than One Year's Service

This clause shall not apply to employees with less than one year's service and the general obligation on employers should be no more than to give relevant employees an indication of the impending redundancy at the first reasonable opportunity and to take such steps as may be reasonable to facilitate the obtaining by employees of suitable alternative employment.

(11) Employees Exempted

This clause shall not apply where employment is terminated as a consequence of conduct that justifies instant dismissal including malingering, inefficiency or neglect of duty or in the case of casual employees, apprentices or employees engaged for a specific period of time or for a specific task or tasks.

(12) Employers Exempted

Subject to an order of the Commission in a particular redundancy case this clause shall not apply to employers who employ less than 15 employees.

(13) Incapacity to Pay

An employer in a particular redundancy case may make application to the Commission to have the general severance pay prescription varied on the basis of the employer’s incapacity to pay.

(14) Dispute Settling

Any dispute under these provisions shall be referred to the Commission.


37. - AVOIDANCE OF INDUSTRIAL DISPUTES

(1) A procedure for the avoidance of industrial disputes shall apply in establishments covered by this award.

The objective of the procedure shall be to promote the resolution of disputes by measures based on consultation, co-operation and discussion; to reduce the level of industrial confrontation; and to avoid interruption to the performance of work and the consequential loss of production and wages.

It is acknowledged that in some companies or sectors of the industry, disputes avoidance/settlement procedures are either now in place or in the process of being negotiated and it may be the desire of the immediate parties concerned to pursue those mutually agreed procedures.

(2) In other cases, the following principles shall apply:

(a) Depending on the issues involved, the size and function of the plant or enterprise and the union membership of the employees concerned, a procedure involving up to four stages of discussions shall apply. These are:

(i) discussions between the employee/s concerned (and shop steward if requested) and the immediate supervisors;

(ii) discussions involving the employee/s concerned, the shop steward and the employer representatives;

(iii) discussions involving representatives from the state branch of the union(s) concerned and the employer representatives;

(iv) discussions involving senior union officials (state secretary) and the senior management representative(s);

(v) there shall be an opportunity for any party to raise the issue to a higher stage.

(b) There shall be a commitment by the parties to achieve adherence to this procedure. This should be facilitated by the earliest possible advice by one party to the other of any issue or problem which may give rise to a grievance or dispute.

(c) Throughout all stages of the procedure all relevant facts shall be clearly identified and recorded.

(d) Sensible time limits shall be allowed for the completion of the various stages of the discussions. At least seven days should be allowed for all stages of the discussions to be finalised.

(e) Emphasis shall be placed on a negotiated settlement. However, if the negotiation process is exhausted without the dispute being resolved, the parties shall jointly or individually refer the matter to the Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission for assistance in resolving the dispute.

(f) In order to allow for the peaceful resolution of grievances the parties shall be committed to avoid stoppages of work, lockouts or any other bans or limitation on the performance of work while the procedures of negotiation and conciliation are being followed.

(g) The employer shall ensure that all practices applied during the operation of the procedure are in accordance with safe working practices and consistent with established custom and practices at the workplace.


38. - SUPERANNUATION

(a) Any such fund or scheme shall no longer be a complying superannuation fund or scheme for the purposes of this clause unless -

(i) the fund or scheme is a complying fund or scheme within the meaning of the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 of the Commonwealth; and

(ii) under the governing rules of the fund or scheme, contributions may be made by or in respect of the employee permitted to nominate a fund or scheme;

(b) The discussions shall take place as soon as is practicable after the employer has made a definite decision which will invoke the provisions of paragraph (a) of this subclause and shall cover among other things, any reasons for the proposed terminations, measures to avoid or minimise the terminations and measures to minimise any adverse effect of any terminations on the employees concerned.
