Textile sector to adopt AIRC award modernization program
Jun '08
Award modernisation involves the creation of a system of modern awards to operate in conjunction with the new Australian workplace relations system.

A total of 14 priority industries have been enlisted by the Australian Industrial Relations Commission (AIRC), this year, which includes textile and footwear sector.

AIRC has clearly defined that the award modernization in various priority industries must be completed before the end of this year and would apply to textile, clothing and footwear industries, among others.

A clause encompassing the aspect of flexibility was also released by the commission for application during the modernization process.

This eight-point clause covers such diverse issues like application of terms like overtime rates, no-disadvantage elements, genuine agreement without coercion or duress and termination of an agreement.

The proposition was welcomed by both the Australian Industry Group (Ai Group) and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI).

It was unanimously agreed that the clause was sensible, fair and workable for all parties allowing awards to be more flexible than they have traditionally been.
