Bargaining representatives

The Fair Work Act 2009 imposes rights and obligations on employers, unions and employees with respect to the bargaining process. Attached for your information is the required statutory Notice of Employee Representational Rights, advising employees of the right to be represented in relation to the bargaining process.

Instruments of appointment for bargaining representatives can be forwarded before the initial meeting (or at any time during the bargaining process) by email to enquiries.ocpe@nt.gov.au or by mail to:

Bargaining representatives are requested to contact my office on 08 8999 4282 to confirm meeting dates.
