Industry Update

Message from the Director

Welcome to the October edition of Industry Update.

This month FWBC released its 2013-14 Annual Report, which is now available on our website.

Compared to the previous financial year, site visits have increased by 27%, penalty proceedings have almost doubled, and penalties issued by the courts have nearly tripled.

The update also covers the issue of when it is lawful to go on strike given a number of enterprise agreements are due for renewal around the country.

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.
