After a long campaign by EI and other unions, the FWC rejected requests for permission for two BHP employment contracts. BP2001/4471, C2001/5836 s.170MI Request by IE Reopen the trading period; and s.99 Communication of a dispute between AWU and Tamar Group Pty Ltd regarding the alleged threat to terminate the employment relationship of the members of the AWU re collective agreement – Hingley C – November 21 During the drafting of the agreements, BHP became greedy. They contained only one salary for a particular roster model and said that employees employed under different types of rosters would determine their compensation according to the same “principles.” C2001/4327, C2001/4475 s.99 Notice of a dispute between FSU and ANZ Banking Group Ltd concerning the wage packaging of the total cost of employment and an individual employment contract; and Article 113 request from the FSU and another request to amend the reintroduction of a new subsection of 6.3 concerning agreements on the cost of employment toal (TEC) – Duncan SDP – 20. In response to this request, BHP decided to set up its own temporary employment companies: OS MCAP Pty Ltd and OS ACPM Pty Ltd.

AG2001/6916-8 s.170MD (6) Requests by Woolworths Ltd to address ambiguities in Franklins Limited`s 2001 National Retail Team Agreement, Franklins Limited Big Fresh Enterprise Agreement and Franklins Limited SDA Victoria Agreement 2001 – Raffaelli C – November 13 Cooperation allowed AWU members to block these agreements and protect their wages and conditions. Had BHP`s dubious deals been approved, thousands of miners would have been worse off across the country. A Full Bench found that the agreements were not actually reached by the relevant staff because BHP denied them access to critical information on wage rates.
