Industry Update

Message from the Director

Welcome to this month’s edition of Industry Update.

It has been a busy month at Fair Work Building & Construction. We currently have 156 investigations underway and 45 cases in court.

This newsletter includes topics that affect a range of people in the building and construction industry.

We set out the proposed Federal building code on current Enterprise Agreement negotiations.

Revoked right of entry permits are an area of concern, with FWBC recently applying to the Fair Work Commission in Adelaide following the actions of union officials.

We also take a look at FWBC’s examination powers to shed some light on the actual use of this investigative tool.

If you have any ideas or topics that you would like to hear about, please send us your direct feedback via the contact details below.

I wish everyone in the industry a safe and happy Christmas.
