    Twilight Event

    A Panel Discussion

    Enterprise bargaining has been at the heart of Australia's industrial relations system since the early 1990s.

    However the number of organisations making enterprise agreements has been falling for some years and there are increasing calls for the system either to be revamped or replaced.

    Has enterprise bargaining had its day?

    Speakers will include:

    Mark Bray (Professor, Newcastle Business School) , Mark holds the Foundation Chair in Employment Studies at the University of Newcastle, Australia. He is lead author (with Peter Waring, Rachel Cooper and Johanna Macneil) on the widely-adopted university textbook, Employment Relations: Theory and Practice (4th Edition, 2018, McGraw-Hill, Sydney) and has recently authored (with Johanna Macneil and Leslee Spiess) the Journal of Industrial Relations’ annual reviews of unions and collective bargaining. His current research projects include studies of cooperation in the workplace and the roles of different regulatory instruments, like awards and collective agreements.

      • Kathleen Collins (General Manager - Employment and Employment Counsel at ComfortDelGro) and

      Gavin Webb (Chief Legal Officer Transport Workers' Union (NSW Branch)  Since he has assumed this role, Gavin has been involved in numerous aspects of the TWU’s operation, including legal representation for individual members and larger collective groups, internal union governance, strategy and election management and assisting in leading national and state enterprise bargaining negotiations. 2020 will see the TWU undertake one of its largest campaigns with a view to use Enterprise Bargaining to achieve industry wide results. Gavin is playing an integral role in the TWU’s 2020 campaign and will provide a Union perspective on the topic of Enterprise Bargaining in today’s current economic and political climate.
