The Government has commenced bargaining for a new Enterprise Agreement to replace the Commonwealth Members of Parliament Staff Enterprise Agreement 2016-2019, which nominally expires on 19 April 2020.
Bargaining is being conducted in accordance with the Fair Work Act 2009 and the Government’s Workplace Bargaining Policy 2018.
Bargaining meetings have been held on 15 November 2019, 22 November 2019, 29 November 2019 and 12 December 2019.
Future meetings are scheduled for:
- Thursday, 23 January 2020

- Friday 14 February 2020
The Government has presented proposals to bargaining representatives to amend the current Enterprise Agreement.
Current bargaining representative and union bargaining teams can be found here.
Should you wish to nominate yourself or another person to be a bargaining representative at bargaining meetings:
