The Fair Work Commission is extensively varying existing awards as a result of the 4 yearly review of modern awards.
The modern awards will be varied in 3 tranches during 2020. In a decision published on 27 April 2020 ( FWCFB 2124), the awards in tranche 3 were divided into smaller groups.
The technical and drafting matters for these awards have been completed:
- Building and Construction General On-site Award 2010
- Joinery and Building Trades Award 2010
- Mobile Crane Hiring Award 2010
- Plumbing and Fire Sprinklers Award 2010
The varied awards have been issued and will commence operation on 1 March 2021.
Any outstanding substantive or common issues claims that have not yet been determined will be incorporated into the varied awards by way of a subsequent variation determination.
To access the new versions of the awards before they commence operation, go to the Modern awards list on the Commission's website.
