Professionals Australia has made a submission to the Senate Standing Committee on Education and Employment, on the Impact of The Government’s Workplace Bargaining Policy and Approach to Commonwealth Public Sector Bargaining.
The submission represents a critical opportunity to identify and address the current inadequacies and transaction costs that are a consequence of the Australian Government’s approach to enterprise bargaining.
Professionals Australia has a strong commitment to enhancing skills and professional development opportunities for members and co-operating with organisations to improve and maintain workforce capability. We are a founding member of the Australian National Engineering Taskforce and have worked cooperatively with leadership across Australian Government in relation to the importance of in-house engineering and science capability.
Our experience of the current round of bargaining has been like an episode of Seinfeld. It has been largely a series of shows about nothing.
