Greenfields agreement

A greenfields agreement is an enterprise agreement that is made in relation to a new enterprise of the employer or employers before any employees are employed in the new enterprise. This can either be a single enterprise agreement or a multi-enterprise agreement. The parties to a greenfields agreement are the employer (or employers in a multi enterprise greenfields agreement) and one or more relevant employee associations (usually a trade union).
