Business agreements can be tailored to the needs of some companies. An agreement should be overall better for an employee when compared to the corresponding bonuses or rewards. We have just received a correspondence from Blue Care to tell them that they will NOT negotiate a new contract with you for the third year in a row! You can read the letter here. As members of the union, you have seen first-hand how hard it is possible to negotiate hard with Blue Care for better pay and better terms. Blue Care management has not only refused to negotiate a new collective agreement for you, but it has also reduced the conditions of your colleagues in the field of home care more recently and has made things just as difficult for your carer colleagues. Enterprise agreements are collective agreements between employers and workers on employment conditions. The Fair Labour Commission can provide information on the process of drafting enterprise agreements, evaluate and approve agreements. We can also deal with disputes over the terms of the agreements. Fair Work Commission publishes enterprise agreements on this website. The information and instruments are available on the Commission`s website to support an agreement. Visit an agreement for more details. Start with our document search and try to search for full-text chords. Registered contracts apply until they are terminated or replaced.

If you have searched and fail to reach an agreement: if a job has a registered agreement, the premium does not apply. However, the Fair Work Commission can also help employers and workers who take their “New Approaches” program. Learn more about the new approaches on the Fair Labour Commission website. If you receive help to understand the minimum wage and the conditions that apply to you, contact the Ombudsman for fair work. Here is a timeline of what has happened in the last three years. Let`s make Blue Care a better place to work! Ask your colleagues to join you here. You gave management the time they asked for, now it`s time to build strength in your workplace by being a union. The challenges Blue Care employees have faced over the past three years in terms of wage uncertainty and conditions are just one of the reasons unions across the country have advocated for rule change. On so many fronts, the rules and the federal industrial system are being violated and must change. You can join the movement for change here. Modern rewards cover an entire sector or profession and provide a safety net between minimum wage rates and employment conditions.
