The Fair Work Commission’s workplace engagement strategy will be developed over the next 6 months, in consultation with the major employer and union bodies.
This strategy will include the facilitation of discussions at an industry and enterprise level to highlight the challenges and opportunities facing each sector of our economy. These discussions should lead to a deeper understanding of the drivers of future productivity growth.
The pace and extent of industry engagement will vary from sector to sector, and will depend on the level of interest and support of the industrial parties.
A number of Commission Members and staff will be participating in a pilot workplace engagement project. We will announce the members of the pilot project team shortly.
Those members will be available, at the joint request of the employer and union industrial parties, to facilitate broad-ranging industry and enterprise level discussions.
ACCI, the Ai Group and the ACTU have committed to working collaboratively with the Commission in a consultative forum that will oversee the Commission’s workplace engagement strategy.
