The New Approaches program is the framework through which the Fair Work Commission performs its legislated function of promoting cooperative and productive workplace relations and preventing disputes.
New Approaches complements the Commission’s dispute resolution and bargaining functions by providing a formal process to help parties to work together effectively and prevent disputes from occurring.
A new video case study arising from the New Approaches program has now been published on our YouTube channel: Macquarie University and the National Tertiary Education Union.
Macquarie University and the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) have adopted interest-based bargaining in negotiating their latest enterprise agreement. This is the first time New Approaches has been adopted in the tertiary education sector.
