1.7.1   The parties are committed to modernising the terms of the Award so that it provides more flexible working
        arrangements, improves the quality of working life, enhances skills and job satisfaction and assists positively
        in the restructuring process.

1.7.2   The parties commit themselves to the following principles as part of the structural efficiency process and
        have agreed to participate in a testing process in accordance with the provisions of this clause -

        (1)     Acceptance in principle that the new award skill level definitions will be more suitable for the needs
                of the industry, sometimes more broadly based, in other matters more truly reflective of the different
                skill levels of the tasks now performed, but which shall incorporate the ability for an employee to
                perform a wider range of duties where appropriate.

        (2)     The parties will create a genuine career path for employees which allows advancement based on
                industry accreditation and access to training.

        (3)     Co-operation in the transition from the old structure to the new structure in an orderly manner
                without creating false expectations or disputation.

2.1.1   (1)     A contract of service to which PART 1 - GENERAL of this Award applies may be terminated in
                accordance with the provisions of this clause and not otherwise but this subclause does not operate
                so as to prevent any party to a contract from giving a greater period of notice than is hereinafter
                prescribed, nor to affect an employer's right to dismiss an employee without notice for serious
                misconduct, and an employee so dismissed shall be paid for the time worked up to the time of
                dismissal only.

        (2)     For the purposes of 2.1.1(1), the definition of "serious misconduct" is misconduct as defined by
                regulation 12.10 of Division 4 of Part 12 of Chapter 2 of the Workplace Relations Regulations 2006
                of such a nature that it would be unreasonable to require the employer to continue the employment of
                the employee concerned during the required period of notice.

        (3)     Subject to the provisions of this clause, a party to a contract of service may, on any day give to the
                other party the appropriate period of notice of termination of the contract prescribed in 2.1.2 and the
                contract terminates when that period expires.

               More than 5 years                                          At least 4 weeks

        (2)     An employee who at the time of being given notice is over 45 years of age and who at the date of
                termination has completed two years' continuous service with the employer, shall be entitled to one
                week's notice in addition to the notice prescribed in 2.1.2(1).

        (3)     Payment in lieu of the notice prescribed in 2.1.2(1) and 2.1.2(2) shall be made if the appropriate
                notice period is not given. Provided that employment may be terminated by part of the period of
                notice specified and part payment in lieu thereof.

        (4)     In calculating any payment in lieu of notice the employer shall pay the employee an amount that is
                equal to, or exceeds, the total of all amounts that, if the employee's employment had continued until
                the end of the required notice period, the employer would have become liable to pay to the employee
                because of the employment continuing during that period. That total must be worked out on the
                basis of:

                (a)     the employee's ordinary hours of work (even if they are not standard hours); and

                (b)     the amounts ordinarily payable to the employee in respect of those hours, including for
                        example, allowances, loadings and penalties; and

                (c)     any other amounts payable under the employee's contract of employment.

        (5)     The period of notice in this subclause shall not apply in the case of probationary employees where
                the duration of the probation is three months or for a longer period and is reasonable having regard
                to the nature and the circumstances of the employment, apprentices, trainees engaged under a
                traineeship agreement or an approved traineeship, employees engaged for a specific period of time or
                for a specific task or tasks, or short-term casual employees.

        (6)     For the purposes of this clause a "short-term casual employee" refers to any casual employee, other
                than a casual employee with at least twelve (12) months regular and systematic employment who
                would, but for the decision to terminate his or her employment, have a reasonable expectation of
                continuing employment.

        (7)     For the purpose of this clause continuity of service shall be calculated in accordance with regulation
                12.11 of Division 4 of Part 12 of Chapter 2 of the Workplace Relations Regulations 2006.

        (8)     In order to terminate the employment of a short-term casual employee the employer shall give the
                employee one hour's notice, or one hour's wages in lieu of notice.

        (9)     The provisions of this subclause shall not apply in any case where the employee's contract of service
                is changed from PART 1 - GENERAL to PART 2 – CONSTRUCTION WORK, of this Award.

        (10)    An employee is not entitled to notice under this clause where the termination of employment occurs
                because of succession, assignment or transmission of the business of the employer to another person
                and the requirements of regulation 12.13(1)(a) and (b) of Division 4 of Part 12 of Chapter 2 of the
                Workplace Relations Regulations 2006 are met.

2.1.3   Notice of Termination by Employee

        (1)     The notice of termination required to be given by an employee shall be the same as that required of
                an employer, save and except that there shall be no additional notice based on the age of the
                employee concerned, and the required period of notice to be given by any casual employee (whether
                or not a short-term casual employee) shall be one hour.

        (2)     If an employee fails to give the required notice or having given, or been given, such notice leaves
                before the notice expires, the employee forfeits the entitlement to any moneys owing to the
                                                        17



                employee under this Award except to the extent that those moneys exceed the ordinary wages for the
                required period of notice.

2.1.4   Time Off During Notice Period

        (1)     During the period of notice of termination given by the employer an employee shall be allowed up to
                one day's time off without loss of pay during each week of notice for the purpose of seeking other
                employment. The time off shall be taken at times that are convenient to the employee after
                consultation with the employer.

        (2)     If an employee has been allowed paid leave for more than one day during the notice period for the
                purpose of seeking other employment, the employee shall, at the request of the employer, be
                required to produce proof of attendance at an interview or he or she shall not receive payment for the
                time absent. For this purpose a statutory declaration will be sufficient.

2.1.5   Statement of Employment

        The employer shall, upon receipt of a request from an employee whose employment has been terminated,
        provide to the employee a written statement specifying the period of employment and the classification or the
        type of work performed by the employee.

2.1.6   Absence From Duty

        The employer shall be under no obligation to pay for any day not worked upon which the employee is
        required to present for duty, except when such absence is due to paid leave to which the employee is entitled
        under the provisions of this Award.

2.1.7   Standing Down of Employees

        (1)     (a)      The employer is entitled to deduct payment for any day or part of a day on which an
                         employee (including an apprentice) cannot be usefully employed because of industrial
                         action by any of the unions party to this Award, or by any other association or union.

                (b)      If an employee is required to attend for work on any day but because of failure or shortage
                         of electric power work is not provided, such employee shall be entitled to two hours' pay
                         and further, where any employee commences work he or she shall be provided with four
                         hours' employment or be paid for four hours' work.

        (2)     The provisions of 2.1.7(1) also apply where the employee cannot be usefully employed through any
                cause which the employer could not reasonably have prevented but only if, and to the extent that, the
                employer and the union or unions concerned so agree or, in the event of disagreement, the Board of
                Reference so determines.

        (3)     Where the stoppage of work has resulted from a breakdown of the employer's machinery the Board
                of Reference, in determining a dispute under 2.1.7(2), shall have regard for the duration of the
                stoppage and the endeavours made by the employer to repair the breakdown.

        (1)     developing a more highly skilled and flexible workforce;

        (2)     providing employees with career opportunities through appropriate training to acquire additional
                skills; and

2.2.2   Following proper consultation in accordance with 4.8.8 in Clause 4.8 - Wages and Supplementary Payments,
        or through the establishment of a training committee, an employer shall develop a training programme
        consistent with:

        (1)      the current and future skill needs of the enterprise;

        (2)      the size, structure and nature of the operations of the enterprise;

        (3)      the need to develop vocational skills relevant to the enterprise and the metal and engineering
                 industry through courses conducted by accredited educational institutions and providers.

2.2.3   Where it is agreed that a training committee be established, such training committee shall be constituted by
        equal numbers of employer and employee representatives and have a charter which clearly states its role and
        responsibilities, for example -

        (1)      formulation of a training programme and availability of training courses and career opportunities to
                 employees;

        (2)      dissemination of information on the training programme and availability of training courses and
                 career opportunities to employees;

        (3)      the recommending of individual employees for training and reclassification;

        (4)      monitoring and advising management and employees regarding the ongoing effectiveness of the
                 training.

2.2.4   (1)      Where, as a result of consultation in accordance with 4.8.8 of Clause 4.8 - Wages and
                 Supplementary Payments or through a training committee and/or with the employee concerned, it is
                 agreed that additional training in accordance with the programme developed pursuant to 2.2.2 should
                 be undertaken by an employee, that training may be undertaken either on or off the job and if the
                 training is undertaken during ordinary working hours, the employee concerned shall not suffer any
                 loss of pay. The employer shall not unreasonably withhold such paid training leave.

        (2)      Any costs associated with standard fees for prescribed courses and prescribed textbooks (excluding

                 expenditure. Provided that reimbursement shall be on an annual basis, subject to the presentation of
                 reports of satisfactory progress.

        (3)      Travel costs incurred by an employee undertaking training in accordance with this clause, which
                 exceed those normally incurred in travelling to and from work, shall be reimbursed by the employer.

        operation. In the meantime, the parties shall monitor the effectiveness of those interim provisions in

        to press for the mandatory prescription of a minimum number of training hours per annum, without loss of
        pay, for an employee undertaking training to meet the needs of an individual enterprise and the metal and
        engineering industry.

2.2.6   Any disputes arising in relation to 2.2.2 and 2.2.3 shall be subject to the provisions of Clause 7. - Dispute

2.3.1   Discussions Before Terminations

        Where an employer has made a definite decision that the employer no longer wishes the job the employee has
        been doing done by anyone and this is not due to the ordinary and customary turnover of labour and that
        decision may lead to termination of employment, the employer shall hold discussions with the employees

                earned if employment with the employer had proceeded to the employee's normal retirement date.

        (2)     For the purpose of this clause continuity of service shall not be broken on account of -

                (a)      any interruption or termination of the employment by the employer if such interruption or
                         termination has been made merely with the intention of avoiding obligations hereunder in
                         respect of leave of absence;

                (b)      any absence from work on account of paid leave or on account of leave lawfully granted by

              the two weeks preceding that Saturday the ordinary weekly wage and the starting and/or
              finishing time on any day or days in those two weeks may be varied by the employer so that
                                                      24



                      the ordinary hours usually worked by an employee between Monday and Friday (both

              period which exceeds twenty-eight (28) consecutive days.

        (3)   The ordinary hours of work prescribed herein shall not exceed ten (10) on any day. Provided that -

              (b)     by employees working less than eight (8) ordinary hours on one (1) or more days each
                      week; or

              (c)     by fixing one (1) day of ordinary working hours on which all employees will be off duty
                      during a particular work cycle; or
                                                 25



      (d)      by rostering employees off duty on various days of the week during a particular work cycle
               so that each employee has one day of ordinary working hours off duty during that cycle; or

      (e)      except in the case of continuous shift employees where the ordinary hours of work are
               worked within an arrangement as provided in 3.1.3(1)(c) or 3.1.3(1)(d), any day off duty

(2)   In the absence of an agreement at plant level, the procedure for resolving special, anomalous or

      (a)      Consultation shall take place within the particular establishment concerned.

      (b)      If it is unable to be resolved at establishment level, the matter shall be referred to the State
               Secretary of the union concerned or Assistant Secretary, at which level a conference of the

      (c)      In the absence of agreement either party may refer the matter to the Commission.

(3)   Different methods of implementation of a 38 hour week may apply to various groups or sections of
      employees in the plant or establishment concerned.

(4)   Notice of Days off Duty.

      Except as provided in 3.1.3(5) and 3.1.3(6) in cases where, by virtue of the arrangement of ordinary
      hours an employee, in accordance with 3.1.3(1)(c) and 3.1.3(1)(d), is entitled to a day off duty
      during the work cycle, then such employee shall be advised by the employer at least four (4) weeks
      in advance of the day to be taken off duty provided that a lesser period of notice may be agreed by
      the employer and the majority of employees in the plant or section or sections concerned.

(5)   (a)      An employer, with the agreement of the majority of employees concerned, may substitute
               the day an employee is to take off in accordance with 3.1.3(1)(c) and 3.1.3(1)(d), for
               another day in the case of a breakdown in machinery or a failure or shortage of electric

               emergency situation.

      (b)      An employer and employee may by agreement substitute the day the employee is to take off
               for another day.

(6)   Flexibility in relation to rostered days off.

      Notwithstanding any other provision in this clause, where the hours of work of an establishment,
      plant or section are organised in accordance with 3.1.3(1)(c) and 3.1.3(1)(d) an employer, the union
      or unions concerned and the majority of employees in the establishment, plant, section or sections
      concerned may agree to accrue up to a maximum of five (5) rostered days off in special
      circumstances such as where there are regular and substantial fluctuations in production
      requirements in any year.

      Where such agreement has been reached the accrued rostered days off must be taken within twelve
      (12) months from the date of agreement and each twelve (12) months thereafter.

      It is understood between the parties that the involvement of the union or unions concerned would be
      necessary in cases where it or they have members in the plants concerned and not in non-union
      establishments.
                                                       26

      (e)     The provisions of this paragraph shall apply in the case of shift employees who rotate from

                (b)      An employee may refuse to work overtime in circumstances where the working of such
                         overtime would result in the employee working hours which are unreasonable having regard
                         to:

                         (i)      any risk to employee health and safety;

                         ban, limitation, or restriction upon the working of overtime in accordance with the
                         requirements of this subclause.

3.2.4   The provisions of this clause do not operate so as to require payment of more than double time rates, or
        double time and a half on a holiday prescribed under this Award, for any work except and to the extent that
        the provisions of Clause 5.2 - Special Allowances and Facilities of this Award apply to that work.

                consecutive afternoon or five (5) consecutive night shifts are worked on that process, then employees
                employed on such afternoon or night shifts shall be paid at overtime rates.

                Provided that where the ordinary hours of work normally worked in an establishment are worked on
                less than five days then the provision of 3.3.3(1) shall be as if that number of consecutive shifts were
                substituted for five (5) consecutive shifts.

        (2)     The sequence of work shall not be deemed to be broken under the preceding paragraph by reason of
                the fact that work on the process is not carried out on a Saturday or Sunday or any other day that the
                employer observes a shut down for the purpose of allowing a 38 hour week or on any holiday.

3.3.4   Where a shift commences at or after 11.00 p.m. on any day, the whole of that shift shall be deemed, for the
        purposes of this Award, to have been worked on the following day.

        employee's ordinary rate prescribed by this Award.

                Sunday - at the rate of time and three quarters.

                Holidays - at the rate of double time.

        (2)     These rates shall be paid in lieu of the shift allowances prescribed in 3.3.5.

        (3)     Provided that the provisions of this subclause may be altered by agreement between the employer
                and the majority of employees in the plant, section or sections concerned where they have reached
                agreement to vary the ordinary hours of work under Clause 3.1 - Hours of this Award.

3.3.7   A continuous shift employee who is not required to work on a holiday which falls on the employee's rostered
        day off shall be allowed a day's leave with pay to be added to annual leave or taken at some other time if the
        employee so agrees.


                                             4.          RATES OF PAY


                                 4.1      MINIMUM ADULT AWARD WAGE

4.1.1   No adult employee shall be paid less than the Minimum Adult Award Wage unless otherwise provided by this
        clause.

4.1.2   The Minimum Adult Award Wage for full time adult employees is $504.40 per week payable on and from 7th

        employees who are remunerated wholly on the basis of payment by result shall not be paid less than pro rata
        the Minimum Adult Award Wage according to the hours worked.

4.1.5   Juniors shall be paid no less than the wage determined by applying the percentage prescribed in the junior
        rates provision in this Award to the Minimum Adult Award Wage of $504.40 per week.

4.1.6   (1)     The Minimum Adult Award Wage shall not apply to apprentices, employees engaged on traineeships
                or Jobskill placements or employed under the Commonwealth Government Supported Wage System
                or to other categories of employees who by prescription are paid less than the minimum award rate.

        (2)     Liberty to apply is reserved in relation to any special categories of employees not included here or
                otherwise in relation to the application of the Minimum Adult Award Wage.

                                                             30



        The rates of pay in this award include the minimum weekly wage for adult employees payable under the 2006
        General Order Wage Case. Any increase arising from the insertion of the Minimum Adult Award Wage will
        be offset against any equivalent amount in rates of pay received by employees whose wages and conditions of
        employment are regulated by this Award which are above the wage rates prescribed in the Award. Such
        above award payments include wages payable pursuant to enterprise agreements, consent awards or award
        variations to give effect to enterprise agreements and over award arrangements. Absorption which is contrary
        to the terms of an agreement is not required. Increases under previous State Wage Case Principles or under
        the current Statement of Principles, excepting those resulting from enterprise agreements, are not to be used
        to offset the Minimum Adult Award Wage.

                    paid less than $421.70 per week.

        (3)         Where in this Award an additional rate is expressed as a percentage, fraction or multiple of the
                    ordinary rate of pay, it shall be calculated upon the rate prescribed in this Award for the actual year
                    of the apprenticeship.

        (4)         Nothing in this sub-clause shall operate to reduce the rate of pay fixed by this Award for an adult
                    apprentice in force immediately prior to 5th June 2003.


              4.2        SUPPORTED WAGE SYSTEM FOR EMPLOYEES WITH DISABILITIES

        (4)         "Assessment instrument" means the form provided for under the Supported Wage System that

                each week during a particular work cycle, wages shall be paid weekly or fortnightly according to a
                weekly average of ordinary hours worked even though more or less than 38 ordinary hours may be
                worked in any particular week of the work cycle.

                SPECIAL NOTE - Explanation of Averaging System
                                                      34




               As provided in 4.6.2(2) an employee whose ordinary hours may be more or less than 38 in any
               particular week of a work cycle, is to be paid the wage on the basis of an average of 38 ordinary
               hours so as to avoid fluctuating wage payments each week. An explanation of the averaging system
               of paying wages is set out below:

               (a)     Clause 3.1 - Hours in 3.1.3(1)(c) and 3.1.3(1)(d) provides that in implementing a 38-hour
                       week the ordinary hours of an employee may be arranged so that the employee is entitled to
                       a day off, on a fixed day or rostered day basis, during each work cycle. It is in these
                       circumstances that the averaging system would apply.

               (b)     If the 38 hour week is to be implemented so as to give an employee a day off in each work
                       cycle this would be achieved if, during a work cycle of 28 consecutive days (that is, over
                       four consecutive weeks) the employee's ordinary hours were arranged on the basis that for
                       three of the four weeks the employee worked 40 ordinary hours each week and in the fourth
                       week worked 32 ordinary hours. That is, the employee would work for 8 ordinary hours
                       each day, Monday to Friday inclusive for three weeks and 8 ordinary hours on four days
                       only in the fourth week - a total of 19 days during the work cycle.

               (c)     In such a case the averaging system applies and the weekly wage rates for ordinary hours of
                       work applicable to the employee shall be the average weekly wage rates set out for the
                       employee's classification in Clause 4.8 - Wages and Supplementary Payments of PART 1 -
                       GENERAL or Clause 13 - Wages of PART 2 - CONSTRUCTION WORK of this Award,
                       and shall be paid each week even though more or less than 38 ordinary hours are worked
                       that week.

                       In effect, under the averaging system, the employee accrues a "credit" each day the
                       employee works actual ordinary hours in excess of the daily average which would otherwise
                       be 7 hours 36 minutes. This "credit" is carried forward so that in the week of the cycle that
                       the employee works only four days, the actual pay would be for an average of 38 ordinary
                       hours even though, that week, the employee works a total of 32 ordinary hours.

                       Consequently, for each day an employee works 8 ordinary hours the employee accrues a
                       "credit" of 24 minutes (0.4 hours). The maximum "credit" the employee may accrue under
                       this system is 0.4 hours on 19 days; that is, a total of 7 hours 36 minutes.

               (d)     As provided in 4.6.3, an employee will not accrue a "credit" for each day the employee is
                       absent from duty other than on paid leave.

4.6.3   Absences from Duty

        (1)    An employee whose ordinary hours are arranged in accordance with 3.1.3(1)(c) or 3.1.3(1)(d) of
               Clause 3.1 - Hours of this Award and who is paid wages in accordance with 4.6.2(1) and is absent
               from duty (other than on paid leave) shall, for each day the employee is so absent, lose average pay
               for that day calculated by dividing the employee's average weekly wage rate by 5.

               An employee who is so absent from duty for part of a day shall lose average pay for each hour the
               employee is absent by dividing the employee's average daily pay rate by 8.

        (2)    Provided when such an employee is absent from duty for a whole day the employee will not accrue a
               "credit" because the employee would not have worked ordinary hours that day in excess of 7 hours
               36 minutes for which the employee would otherwise have been paid. Consequently, during the week
               of the work cycle the employee is to work less than 38 ordinary hours the employee will not be
               entitled to average pay for that week. In that week, the average pay will be reduced by the amount
               of the "credit" the employee does not accrue for each whole day during the work cycle the employee
               is absent.
                                                          35



                The amount by which an employee's average weekly pay will be reduced when the employee is
                absent from duty (other than on paid leave) is to be calculated as follows:

                                                                                   average weekly pay
                   Total of "credits" not accrued during cycle   x                         38

        Examples

        1     Employee takes one day off without authorisation in first week of cycle
              Week of Cycle               Payment
              1st week                    = average weekly pay less one day's pay (i.e. 1/5th)
              2nd & 3rd weeks             = average weekly pay each week
              4th Week                    = average pay less credit not accrued on day of absence
                                          = average pay less 0.4 hours x (average weekly pay / 38)

        2.    Employee takes each of the 4 days off without authorisation in the 4th week.
              Week of Cycle                Payment
              1st, 2nd & 3rd weeks         = average pay each week
              4th week                     = average pay less 4/5ths of average pay for the four days absent less
                                           total of credits not accrued that week
                                           = 1/5th average pay less 4 x 0.4 hours x (average weekly pay / 38)
                                           = 1/5th average pay less 1.6 hours x (average weekly pay / 38)

4.6.4   Alternative Method of Payment

        An alternative method of paying wages to that prescribed by 4.6.2 and 4.6.3 may be agreed between the
        employer and the majority of the employees concerned.

4.6.5   Day Off Coinciding with Pay Day

        In the event that an employee, by virtue of the arrangement of the employee's ordinary working hours, is to
        take a day off duty on a day which coincides with pay day, such employee shall be paid no later than the
        working day immediately following pay day. Provided that, where the employer is able to make suitable
        arrangements, wages may be paid on the working day preceding pay day.

4.6.6   Payment by Cheque or Electronic Fund Transfer

        Where an employee and the employer agree, the employee's wages may be paid by cheque or direct transfer
        into the employee's bank (or other recognised financial institution) account. Notwithstanding this provision,
        if the employer and the majority of employees agree, all employees may be paid their wages by cheque or
        direct transfer into an employee's bank (or other recognised financial institution) account.

4.6.7   Termination of Employment

        An employee who lawfully leaves the employment or is dismissed for reasons other than misconduct shall be
        paid all monies due at the termination of service with the employer.

        Provided that in the case of an employee whose ordinary hours are arranged in accordance with 3.1.3(1)(c) or
        3.1.3(1)(d) of Clause 3.1 - Hours of this Award and who is paid average pay and who has not taken the day
        off due to the employee during the work cycle in which the employment is terminated, the wages due to that
        employee shall include a total of credits accrued during the work cycle as detailed in the Special Note
        following 4.6.2(2).

        Provided further, where the employee has taken a day off during the work cycle in which the employment is
        terminated, the wages due to that employee shall be reduced by the total of credits which have not accrued
        during the work cycle.

4.6.8   Details of Payments to be Given
                                                           36




        Where an employee requests the employer to state in writing with respect to each week's wages the amount of
        wages to which the employee is entitled, the amount of deductions made therefrom, the net amount being
        paid, and the number of hours worked, the employer shall do so not less than two (2) hours before the
        employee is paid.

4.6.9   Calculation of Hourly Rate

        Except as provided in 4.6.3 the ordinary rate per hour shall be calculated by dividing the appropriate weekly
        rate by 38.

        (2)     Supplementary Payments

                (a)       Where an employee is in receipt of a rate of pay which exceeds the Total Rate Per Week
                          prescribed above, whether such payment is being made by virtue of any order, industrial
                          agreement or other agreement or arrangement, then such rate will be deemed to be inclusive
                          of the Supplementary Payment.

                (b)       Overtime, shift allowances, penalty rates, disability allowances, special rates, fares and
                          travelling time allowances and any other work related allowances prescribed by this Award
                          shall not be offset against Supplementary Payments.

        (3)     The rates of pay in this Award include arbitrated safety net adjustments available since December
                1993, under the Arbitrated Safety Net Adjustment Principle.

                These arbitrated safety net adjustments may be offset against any equivalent amount in the rate of
                pay received by employees since 1 November 1991 above the rate prescribed in the Award, except
                where such absorption is contrary to the terms of an industrial agreement.
                                                          39



                Increases in rates of pay otherwise made under the State Wage Case Principles, excepting those

                (a)      Day Employees - An employee who would have worked on day work had the employee not

                         not been on leave a loading of 17½%. Provided that where the employee would have

                         the employee not been on leave during the relevant period and such loadings would have
                         entitled the employee to a greater amount than the loading of 17½%, then the shift loadings
                         and, if applicable, the payment for the said regularly rostered sixth shift shall be added to
                         the rate of wage prescribed by 6.1.1(2)(b)(i) in lieu of the 17½% loading.

                         Provided further, that if the shift loadings and, if applicable, the payment for the said
                         regularly rostered sixth shift would have entitled the employee to a lesser amount than the
                         loading of 17½%, then such loading of 17½% shall be added to the rate of wage prescribed
                         by 6.1.1(2) but not including 6.1.1(2)(b)(ii) in lieu of the shift loadings and the said

                and holidays shall be allowed one week's leave in addition to the leave to which the employee is

                otherwise entitled under this clause increased by one twelfth of a week for each completed month the
                employee is continuously so engaged.

6.1.3   If any award holiday falls within an employee's period of annual leave and is observed on a day which in the
        case of that employee would have been an ordinary working day there shall be added to that period one day
        being an ordinary working day for each such holiday observed as aforesaid.
                                                          55

                continuous service.

6.1.5   Any unpaid absence shall not count for the purpose of determining the employee's right to annual leave.

6.1.6   In the event of an employee being employed by an employer for portion only of a year, the employee shall
        only be entitled, subject to 6.1.4, to such leave on full pay as is proportionate to the employee's length of

                in two continuous periods then one of those two periods must be at least three consecutive weeks.
                Provided that if the employer and an employee so agree then the employee's annual leave entitlement
                may be given and taken in two separate periods, neither of which is of at least three consecutive
                weeks, or in three separate periods.

        (2)     Provided further that an employee may, with the consent of his or her employer, take short term
                annual leave not exceeding five (5) days in any calendar year, at a time or times separate from any of
                the periods determined in accordance with this subclause.

        (3)     (a)      Where an employer and an employee have not agreed when the employee is to take his or
                         her annual leave, subject to 6.1.7(3)(b) the employer is not to refuse the employee taking, at
                         any time suitable to the employee, any period of annual leave the entitlement to which
                         accrued more than twelve (12) months before that time.

                (b)      The employee is to give the employer at least two (2) weeks’ notice of the period during
                         which the employee intends to take his or her leave.

        annual leave to all or the bulk of the employees in the business, or section or sections concerned, the
        following provisions shall apply:-

        (1)     The employer may by giving not less than one (1) month's notice of the intention so to do, stand off
                for the duration of the close down all employees in the business or section or sections concerned.

        (2)     An employer may close down the business for one or two separate periods for the purpose of
                granting annual leave in accordance with this subclause. If the employer closes down the business in

                agree, the employer may close down the business in accordance with this subclause in two separate
                periods neither of which is of at least three (3) consecutive weeks, or in three (3) separate periods. In
                such cases the employer shall advise the employees concerned of the proposed date of each close
                down before asking them for their agreement.

6.1.9   (1)     An employer may close down the business, or a section or sections thereof, for a period of at least
                three (3) consecutive weeks and grant the balance of the annual leave due to an employee in one (1)

                 continuous period in accordance with a roster. Provided that by agreement with the majority of
                 employees concerned, an employer may close down the plant for a period of at least fourteen (14)
                 consecutive days including non-working days and grant the balance of the annual leave due to an
                 employee by mutual arrangement.

         (2)     An employer may close down the business, or a section or sections thereof for a period of less than
                 three (3) consecutive weeks and allow the balance of the annual leave due to an employee in one or
                 two continuous periods, either of which may be in accordance with a roster. In such a case the
                 granting and taking of annual leave shall be subject to the agreement of the employer and the
                 majority of the employees in the business, or a section or sections thereof respectively and before
                 asking the employees concerned for their agreement, the employer shall advise them of the proposed
                 date of the close down or close downs and the details of the annual leave roster.

6.2.3   The employee shall as soon as reasonably practicable advise the employer of his or her inability to attend for
        work, the nature of his or her illness or injury and the estimated duration of the absence. Provided that such
        advice, other than in extraordinary circumstances shall be given to the employer within 24 hours of the
        commencement of the absence. Provided that an employee shall not be entitled to claim payment for any
        period exceeding ten (10) weeks in any one (1) year of service.

                the employee was confined to place of residence or a hospital as a result of the employee personal ill
                health or injury for a period of seven (7) consecutive days or more and the employee produces a
                certificate from a registered medical practitioner that the employee was so confined. Provided that
                the provisions of this paragraph do not relieve the employee of the obligation to advise the employer
                in accordance with 6.2.3 if the employee is unable to attend for work on the working day next
                following the employee annual leave.

        (3)     Replacement of paid annual leave by paid sick leave shall not exceed the period of paid sick leave to
                which the employee was entitled at the time the employee proceeded on annual leave and shall not
                be made with respect to fractions of a day.

                6.2.5(3), that portion of the annual leave equivalent to the paid sick leave is hereby replaced by the
                paid sick leave and the replaced annual leave may be taken at another time mutually agreed to by the
                employer and the employee or, failing agreement, shall be added to the employee's next period of
                annual leave or, if termination occurs before then, be paid for in accordance with the provisions of
                Clause 6.1 - Annual Leave and Clause 6.7 - Public Holidays.

        (5)     Payment for replaced annual leave shall be at the rate of wage applicable at the time the leave is
                subsequently taken provided that the annual leave loading prescribed in Clause 6.1 - Annual Leave
                and Clause 6.7 - Public Holidays shall be deemed to have been paid with respect to the replaced
                annual leave.

6.2.6   Where a business has been transmitted from one employer to another and the employee's service has been
        deemed continuous in accordance with section 6 of the Long Service Leave Act 1958, the paid sick leave
        standing to the credit of the employee at the date of transmission from service with the transmittor shall stand
        to the credit of the employee at the commencement of service with the transmittee and may be claimed in
        accordance with the provisions of this clause.

        employment or the Minimum Conditions of Employment Act 1993;

        "expected date of birth" means the day certified by a medical practitioner to be the day on which the medical
        practitioner expects the employee or the employee's spouse or de facto partner, as the case may be, to give
        birth to a child; or if the employee could not obtain a medical certificate, the date of birth of the child that
        could reasonably be expected if the pregnancy were to go to full term;

        (1)      the employee was engaged by a particular employer on a regular and systematic basis for a sequence

                 sequence of periods during a period "the second period of employment", that started not more than
                 three (3) months after the end of the first period of employment;

        (4)      the combined length of the first period of employment and the second period of employment is at
                 least twelve (12) months; and

        (5)      the employee, but for an expected birth of a child to the employee or the employee’s spouse or de
                 facto partner or an expected placement of a child with the employee with a view to the adoption of
                 the child by the employee would have a reasonable expectation of continuing engagement by the
                 employer on a regular and systematic basis.

6.5.2   Eligibility for Parental Leave

        (1)      An employee is entitled to take up to 52 consecutive weeks of unpaid leave in respect of the:

                 (a)      birth of a child to the employee or the employee's spouse or de facto partner; or

                 (b)      placement of a child with the employee with a view to the adoption of the child by the
                          employee.

        (2)      An employee is not entitled to take parental leave unless the employee has:

                 (a)      before the expected date of the birth or placement, completed at least twelve (12) months'
                          continuous service with the employer; and

                 (b)      given the employer at least ten (10) weeks' written notice of his or her intention to take the
                          leave.

        (3)      The requirement for ten (10) weeks’ written notice in 6.5.2(2)(b) does not apply if it was not
                 reasonably practicable for the employee to comply because of:

                 (a)      the premature birth of the employee’s child;

                 (b)      the date when the placement was expected to start; or

                 (c)      any other compelling reason.

        (4)      An employee is not entitled to take parental leave at the same time as the employee’s spouse or de
                 facto partner but this subclause does not apply to one (1) week’s parental leave or short adoption
                 leave of three (3) weeks taken by the:
                                                         60



               (a)      spouse or de facto partner of the person who gave birth to the child, immediately after the
                        birth of the child; or

               (b)      employee and the employee's spouse or de facto partner immediately after a child has been
                        placed with them with a view to their adoption of the child.

        (5)    An employee seeking to obtain approval to adopt a child is entitled to a period of up to two (2) days
               unpaid leave to attend any interviews or examinations required to obtain the approval. An employee
               is not entitled to such unpaid leave if his or her employer requires the employee to use other leave
               entitlements that are available to the employee. The two (2) days unpaid leave is able to be taken as
               a single, unbroken, period or in any separate periods as agreed between the employee and his or her
               employer.

        (6)    An employee may request the employer to extend the period of parental leave to which the employee
               is entitled under 6.5.2(1) for a further consecutive period of not more than 52 consecutive weeks.
               Such a request is to be in writing and must be made at least four (4) weeks before the day on which
               the employee would have finished parental leave if the request had not been made.

        (7)    An employee may request the employer to extend the period of parental leave which the employee is
               entitled under 6.5.2(4) to take at the same time as the employee’s spouse or de facto partner for a
               further period of not more than seven (7) consecutive weeks. Such a request is to be in writing and
               can be made at any time before the end of the leave referred to in 6.5.2(4).

        (8)    An employer is to agree to a request under 6.5.2(6) and 6.5.2(7) unless:

               (a)      the employer, having considered the employee’s circumstances, is not satisfied that the
                        request is genuinely based on the employee’s parental responsibilities; or

               (b)      there are grounds to refuse the request relating to the adverse effect that agreeing to the
                        request would have on the conduct of operations or business of the employer and those
                        grounds would satisfy a reasonable person.

               The employer is to give written notice of its decision and if the employer refuses the request, the
               notice is to set out the reasons for the refusal.

        (9)    The entitlement of an employee to parental leave is reduced by any period of parental leave taken by
               the employee’s spouse or de facto partner in relation to the same child, except:

               (a)      the period of leave referred to in 6.5.2(4); or

               (b)      an extended period of parental leave agreed to pursuant to 6.5.2(7).

        (10)   An employee who has given notice of his or her intention to take parental leave, other than for
               adoption is to provide to the employer a certificate from a medical practitioner stating that the
               employee or the employee’s spouse or de facto partner, as the case may be, is pregnant and the
               expected date of birth (or, where relevant, stating that the employee’s spouse or de facto partner has
               given birth to a living child and specifying the date of birth).

        (11)   An employee who has given notice of his or her intention to take parental leave or who is actually
               taking parental leave is to give notice supported by a statutory declaration to the employer of
               particulars of any period of parental leave taken or to be taken by the employee’s spouse or de facto
               partner in relation to the same child.

        (12)   The period of parental leave may be shortened by written agreement between the employee and the
               employer.

6.5.3   Period of Leave and Commencement of Leave
                                                          61



        (1)     Subject to 6.5.4 and 6.5.6, a female employee who has given notice of her intention to take parental
                leave, other than for adoption, is to commence the leave six (6) weeks before the estimated date of
                birth unless a medical practitioner has certified that she is fit to work closer to the date.

        (2)     An employee who has given notice of his or her intention to take parental leave must notify the
                employer of the dates on which the employee wishes to start and finish the leave. An employee who
                is taking parental leave is to notify the employer of any change to the date on which the employee
                wishes to finish the leave.

6.5.4   Transfer to a Safe-Job

        (1)     This clause applies where an employee gives her employer a medical certificate from a medical
                practitioner containing a statement to the effect that, in the medical practitioner’s opinion, the
                employee is fit to work, but that it is inadvisable for her to continue in her present position for a
                stated period because of:

                (a)      illness, or risks, arising out of her pregnancy; or

                (b)      hazards connected with that position.

        (2)     If the employee’s employer thinks it to be reasonably practicable to transfer the employee to a safe
                job - the employer must transfer the employee to the safe job, with no other change to the
                employee’s terms and conditions of employment; or

        (3)     If the employee’s employer does not think it to be reasonably practicable to transfer the employee to
                a safe job:

                (a)      the employee may take paid leave immediately for a period ending at the time mentioned in
                         6.5.4(5)(b); or

                (b)      the employer may require the employee to take paid leave immediately for a period ending
                         at the time mentioned in 6.5.4(5)(b).

        (4)     If the employee takes paid leave under 6.5.4(3)(a) or 6.5.4(3)(b) during a period, the employer must
                pay the employee for that period the amount the employee would have received as her payment at
                the time the leave is taken. Where the number of hours cannot be determined, the total number of
                hours worked in the 52 weeks immediately before the leave is taken are to be averaged.

        (5)     If the employee takes paid leave under 6.5.4(3)(a) or 6.5.4(3)(b):

                (a)      the entitlement to leave is in addition to any other leave entitlement she has; and

                (b)      the period of leave ends at the earliest of whichever of the following times is applicable:

                         (i)      the end of the period stated in the medical certificate;

                         (ii)     if the employee’s pregnancy results in the birth of a living child - the end of the
                                  day before the date of birth;

                         (iii)    if the employee’s pregnancy ends otherwise than with the birth of a living child -
                                  the end of the day before the end of the pregnancy.

        (6)     Leave taken under 6.5.4(3)(a) or 6.5.4(3)(b) shall be treated as parental leave for the purposes of
                6.5.7, 6.5.8 and 6.5.9.

6.5.5   Cancellation of Parental Leave
                                                          62



        (1)     Parental leave applied for, but not commenced, will be cancelled when the pregnancy of an
                employee or an employee’s spouse or de facto partner terminates other than by the birth of a living
                child or when the proposed placement of a child with an employee is cancelled.

        (2)     Where the pregnancy of an employee then on parental leave terminates other than by the birth of a
                living child, the employee has the right to resume work at a time nominated by the employer which
                date must not be less than four weeks from the date the employee gives notice in writing to the
                employer that the employee desires to resume work.

        (3)     Where an employee is on parental leave and gives birth to a living child but the child later dies, the
                employee’s entitlement to parental leave is not affected by the death of a child, except that the
                employer may give written notice to the employee that from a stated day the parental leave is
                cancelled. The stated day must be no earlier than the later of four (4) weeks from the day the notice
                was given or six (6) weeks after the date of birth.

        (4)     Where an employee is on parental leave for adoption and the placement is cancelled or discontinued,
                the employee’s entitlement to parental leave is not affected by the cancellation or discontinuation of
                the placement, except that the employer may give written notice to the employee that from a stated
                day the parental leave is cancelled. The stated day must be no earlier than four (4) weeks from the
                day the notice was given.

        (5)     If during a substantial period while an employee is on parental leave the employee is not the child’s
                primary care-giver and it is reasonable to expect that the employee will not again become the child’s
                primary care-giver within a reasonable period, the employer may give written notice that from a
                stated day the parental leave is cancelled. The stated day must be no earlier than four (4) weeks after
                the notice is given.

6.5.6   Special Parental Leave and Sick Leave

        (1)     Where the pregnancy of a female employee not then on parental leave has ended within 28 weeks
                before the expected date of birth of the child otherwise than by the birth of a living child then she
                must be entitled to such period of unpaid leave (to be known as special parental leave) as a duly
                qualified medical practitioner certifies as necessary before her return to work.

        (2)     Where a female employee not then on parental leave suffers illness related to her pregnancy, she
                may take such paid sick leave as to which she is then entitled and such further unpaid leave (to be
                known as special parental leave) as a duly qualified medical practitioner certifies as necessary before
                her return to work, provided that the aggregate of paid sick leave, special parental leave and parental
                leave must not exceed 52 weeks, or a further extended period of parental leave agreed to under
                6.5.2(6).

        (3)     For the purposes of 6.5.7, 6.5.8 and 6.5.9, parental leave includes special parental leave.

        (4)     An employee returning to work after the completion of a period of leave taken pursuant to this
                subclause will be entitled to the position which she held immediately before proceeding on such
                leave or, in the case of an employee who was transferred to a safe job pursuant to 6.5.4, to the
                position she held immediately before such transfer. Where such position no longer exists but there
                are other positions available, for which the employee is qualified and the duties of which she is
                capable of performing, she will be entitled to a position as nearly comparable in status and pay to
                that of her former position.

6.5.7   Parental Leave and Other Leave Entitlements

        (1)     Provided the aggregate of leave including leave taken pursuant to 6.5.4 and 6.5.6 does not exceed 52
                weeks, or a further extended period of parental leave agreed to under 6.5.2(6), an employee may,
                instead of or in conjunction with parental leave, take any annual leave or long service leave or any
                part of annual leave or long service leave to which the employee is then entitled.
                                                         63



        (2)     Paid sick leave or other paid authorised Award absences (excluding annual leave or long service
                leave) will not be available to an employee during the employee’s absence on parental leave.

6.5.8   Effect of Parental Leave on Employment

        Absence on parental leave does not break the continuity of service of an employee but is not to be taken into
        account in calculating the period of service for any purpose of the Award.

6.5.9   Termination of Employment

        (1)     An employee on parental leave may terminate his or her employment at any time during the period
                of leave by notice given in accordance with this Award.

        (2)     An employer must not terminate the employment of an employee on the ground of the employee’s
                pregnancy or of the employee’s absence on parental leave, but otherwise the rights of an employer in
                relation to termination of employment are not affected.

6.5.10 Return to Work after Parental Leave

        (1)     Upon finishing parental leave an employee will be entitled to the position which the employee held
                immediately before proceeding on parental leave or, in the case of an employee who was transferred
                to a safe job pursuant to 6.5.4, to the position which the employee held immediately before such
                transfer.

        (2)     If the position referred to in 6.5.10(1) no longer exists but there are other positions available for
                which the employee is qualified and the duties of which the employee is capable of performing, the
                employee will be entitled to the position most comparable in status and pay to that of the employee’s
                former position.

        (3)     Where, immediately before starting parental leave, an employee was acting in, or performing on a
                temporary basis the duties of, the position referred to in 6.5.10(1), that subclause applies only in
                respect of the position held by the employee immediately before taking the acting or temporary
                position.

        (4)     An employee may request the employer to permit the employee, on finishing parental leave, to work
                on a modified basis in a position to which the employee is entitled under 6.5.10(1) or 6.5.10(2).
                Such a request is to be made in writing least seven (7) weeks before the day on which the employee
                finishes parental leave.

        (5)     If the employee has been permitted to work on a modified basis, the employee may subsequently
                request the employer permit the employee to resume working on the same basis as the employee
                worked immediately before starting parental leave. Such a request is to be made in writing at least
                six (6) weeks before the day the employee wishes to resume working on the basis as the employee
                worked immediately before starting parental leave.

        (6)     The employer is to agree to a request under 6.5.10(4) unless:

                (a)      the employer, having considered the employee’s circumstances, is not satisfied that the
                         request is genuinely based on the employee’s parental responsibilities; or

                (b)      there are grounds to refuse the request relating to the adverse effect that agreeing to the
                         request would have on the conduct of the operations or business of the employer and those
                         grounds would satisfy a reasonable person.

        (7)     The employer is to agree to a request under 6.5.10(5) unless there are grounds to refuse the request
                relating to the adverse effect that agreeing to the request would have on the conduct of the operations
                or business of the employer and those grounds would satisfy a reasonable person.
                                                           64



        (8)      The employer is to give the employee written notice of its decision on a request under 6.5.10(4) or
                 6.5.10(5) and, if the request is refused, the notice is to set out the reasons for the refusal.

        (9)      If the employee has been permitted to work on a modified basis, the employer may subsequently
                 require the employee to resume working on the same basis as the employee worked immediately
                 before starting parental leave. The employer must give at least six (6) weeks’ notice before the day
                 on which the employer wishes the employee to resume working on the basis as the employee worked
                 immediately before starting parental leave. The employer is to give notice in writing setting out the
                 reasons for the requirement.

        (10)     A requirement can be made under 6.5.10(9) if, and only if:

                 (a)      the requirement is made on the grounds relating to the adverse effect that the employee
                          continuing to work on a modified basis would have on the conduct of the operations of
                          business of the employer and those grounds would satisfy a reasonable person; or

                 (b)      the employee no longer has a child below school age.

        (11)     The employer is to give written notice of a decision under 6.5.10(9) and the notice is to set out the
                 reasons for the decision.

        (12)     In 6.5.10(4) "modified basis" means a basis that involves the employee working

                 (a)      on different days or at different times, or both; or

                 (b)      on fewer days or for fewer hours, or both,

                 than the employee worked immediately before starting parental leave.

6.5.11 Replacement Employees

        (1)      A replacement employee is an employee specifically engaged as a result of an employee proceeding
                 on parental leave.

        (2)      Before an employer engages a replacement employee under this subclause, the employer must
                 inform that person of the temporary nature of the employment and of the rights of the employee who
                 is being replaced.

        (3)      Before an employer engages a person to replace an employee temporarily promoted or transferred in
                 order to replace an employee exercising his or her rights under this clause, the employer must inform
                 that person of the temporary nature of the promotion or transfer and of the rights of the employee
                 who is being replaced.

        (4)      Nothing in this subclause will be construed as requiring an employer to engage a replacement
                 employee.

7.2   The objective of the procedure shall be to promote the resolution of disputes by measures based on
      consultation, co-operation and discussion; to reduce the level of industrial confrontation; and to avoid
      interruption to the performance of work and the consequential loss of production and wages.

7.3   It is acknowledged that in some companies or sectors of the industry, disputes avoidance/settlement
      procedures are either now in place or in the process of being negotiated and it may be the desire of the
      immediate parties concerned to pursue those mutually agreed procedures.

      (1)      Any question, dispute or difficulty arising under this Award shall be subject to dispute settlement
               procedures established under this award.

      (2)      Any settlement reached which is contrary to the terms of this Award shall not have effect unless or
               until that conflict is resolved.

      (3)      Any matter not settled may be referred to the Commission at any time provided that persons
               involved in the question, dispute or difficulty shall confer among themselves and make reasonable
               attempts to resolve questions, disputes or difficulties before taking those matters to the Commission.

7.4   In other cases, the following principles shall apply:

      (1)      Depending on the issues involved, the size and function of the plant or enterprise and the union
               membership of the employees concerned, a procedure involving up to four stages of discussion shall
               apply. These are:

               (a)      discussions between the employee/s concerned (and shop steward if requested) and the
                        immediate supervisors;

               (b)      discussions involving the employee/s concerned, the shop steward and the employer
                        representatives;

               (c)      discussions involving representatives from the state branch of the union(s) concerned and
                        the employer representative(s);

               (d)      discussions involving senior union officials (state secretary) and the senior management
                        representative(s);

               (e)      there shall be an opportunity for any party to raise the issue to a higher stage.

      (2)      There shall be a commitment by the parties to achieve adherence to this procedure. This should be
               facilitated by the earliest possible advice by one party to the other of any issue or problem which
               may give rise to a grievance or dispute.

      (3)      Throughout all stages of the procedure all relevant facts shall be clearly identified and recorded.

      (4)      Sensible time limits shall be allowed for the completion of the various stages of the discussions. At
               least seven days should be allowed for all stages of the discussions to be finalised.

      (5)      Emphasis shall be placed on a negotiated settlement. However if the negotiation process is
               exhausted without the dispute being resolved, the parties shall jointly or individually refer the matter
               to the Commission for assistance in resolving the question, dispute or difficulty provided that
               persons involved in the question, dispute or difficulty shall confer among themselves and make
               reasonable attempts to resolve questions, disputes or difficulties before taking those matters to the
               Commission.

      (6)      In order to allow for the peaceful resolution of grievances the parties shall be committed to avoid
               stoppages of work, lockouts or any other bans or limitation on the performance of work while the
               procedures of negotiation and conciliation are being followed.
                                                         67

                 accordance with safe working practices and consistent with established custom and practices at the
                 workplace.

                  rest period, if any, which may be allowed to the aforesaid majority.

         employee.

                                                   16.       LEAVE


                                       16.1     ANNUAL LEAVE LOADING

Notwithstanding the provisions of 6.1.1(3) of Clause 6.1 - Annual Leave of PART 1 - GENERAL of this Award the
loading prescribed in the said paragraph shall apply to proportionate leave due to an employee whose employment is
terminated by the employer for any cause other than misconduct.


                                      17.       STRUCTURAL EFFICIENCY

17.1    The parties to this Award are committed to co-operating positively to increase the efficiency, productivity and
        international competitiveness of the metal and engineering construction industry and to enhance career
        opportunities and job security of employees in the industry.

17.2    The parties shall establish a working group for the testing or trial of various skill levels and to enable proper
        consultation with both employees and employers in the industry on matters consistent with the objectives of
        17.1. The parties shall process any such matters through that working group.

17.3    Measures raised for consideration consistent with 17.2 shall be related to implementation of a new
        classification structure, any facilitative provisions contained in this Award and matters concerning training.

17.4    Without limiting the rights of either an employer or a union to arbitration, any other measure designed to
        increase flexibility on a site or within an enterprise sought by any party shall be notified to the working group
        and by agreement of the parties involved shall be implemented, subject to the following requirements.

        (1)      The changes sought shall not affect provisions reflecting national standards recognised by the
                 Commission.

        (2)      The working party will consider the implications of the proposed measures for existing on-site
                 arrangements.

        (3)      The majority of employees affected by the change at the site or enterprise must genuinely agree to
                 the change.

        (4)      No employee shall lose income as a result of the change.

        (5)      The relevant union or unions must be a party to the agreement.

        (6)      Any agreement shall be subject, where appropriate, to approval by the Commission and, if approved,
                 shall operate as a Schedule to this Award and take precedence over any provision of this Award to
                 the extent of any inconsistency.

17.5    Award restructuring should be given its wider meaning and not be confined only to the restructuring of
        classifications but may extend to the review of other restrictive provisions which currently operate. To that
        end, such restrictive provisions will be reviewed on an on-going basis.

17.6    The parties to this Award recognise that in order to increase efficiency, productivity and international
        competitiveness of industry, a greater commitment to training and skill development is required.
        Accordingly, the parties commit themselves to -

        (1)      developing a more highly skilled workforce;

        (2)      providing employees with career opportunities through appropriate training to acquire additional
                 skills; and

        (3)      removing barriers to the utilisation of skills acquired.
                                                          83




17.7      Any disputes arising in relation to the implementation of this clause shall be subject to the provisions of
          Clause 7 – Dispute Resolution Procedure of PART 1 - GENERAL.

             prior to award restructuring. The following old classifications "line up" previous wage groups with
             the new career path levels. This Appendix will subsequently be deleted by agreement between the
             parties.
