The Department of Labour has published the Labour Relations Amendment Draft Bill, and is asking you to comment.

Amendments to the Labour Relations Act aim to strengthen collective bargaining and to introduce an advisory arbitration measure to resolve strikes that are intractable, violent or may cause a local or national crisis.  The LRA amendments will be accompanied by a  Code of Good Practice on Collective Bargaining, Industrial Action and Picketing.  The Code is intended to provide practical guidance on collective bargaining, the resolution of disputes of mutual interest and the resort to industrial action. 

Comments and Enquiries can be emailed to [email protected] or [email protected] by no later than Wednesday, 10 January 2018.
