Register now to attend the IR Law Forum Series
As you are aware the Secure Jobs and Better Pay Bill has been passed. This Act introduces the most significant changes to our Industrial Relations Laws since the FWA was first introduced.
Union Leaders will be coming together on 20-21 February for a Leaders Strategy Meeting in Melbourne, to ensure that the time that we have together at the Leaders Strategy Meeting is focussed on strategic discussion, Leaders Strategy Meeting attendees are asked to have participated in the five required attendance modules of the IR Law Forum Series being held online from 6-17 February.
The Forum Series will provide essential briefings of the new laws to enable unions to consider the opportunities that the new laws present for their organising and members, ahead of our joint strategy discussions at the Leaders Strategy Meeting.
The IR Law Forum Series briefings are open to all National, State, Branch and TLC secretaries, Leaders Strategy Meeting attendees and other key personnel, as nominated by their Union’s Secretary, who will be involved in their union’s internal strategic considerations of working with the new laws.
