Fair Work Commission 4 Yearly Review
The FWC review is currently dealing with the Pastoral Award 2010 and the Horticulture Award 2010. In brief, the NFF is seeking annualised salaries, payment of Sunday overtime at time and a-half for milking, changes in the definition of "broadacre crops", and clarification of the formula for the calculation of the rates for Woolclassers.
The AWU is seeking double rates for crutching rams and ram stags and provisions for learner shearers. A claim for the reduction in the 3 hour minimum payment for casuals to hours for Dairy Industry employees will be dealt with separately in the Casual Employment part of the review on common Award issues.
Submissions have been directed to be made in October.
