Building Code Enterprise Agreement
(3) An installation covered by the Code may not apply to construction work: (1) Subsections (2) – (7) apply only to work financed by the Commonwealth. The 2013 Construction Code (Code), a procurement policy with legal effect, imposes the federal government`s expectations regarding the standards of compliance with labour laws by participants in the construction sector. (c) confirm, at the time of the submission of an expression of interest or tender, the right to carry out construction work financed by the Commonwealth; and non-compliance with the code means that a participant in the construction industry is not solicited for Commonwealth-funded work. As a general rule, the CFMEU is covered by existing agreements that do not comply with the 2016 Code. Until recently, the CFMEU refused to negotiate with contractors in order to vary existing agreements in order to obtain compliance with the code in 2016. This occurred while the CFMEU had previously agreed to include in several versions of its model agreement published after April 25, 2014 a clause committing to make all necessary changes to ensure that the agreement corresponds to future versions of the construction code (“amending clause”). I, Michaelia Cash, Minister of Employment, adopt the following code of conduct, in accordance with subsection 34 (1) of the Construction and Construction Act 2016. In this article, Damon King, senior partner, summarizes these soft touch regulatory changes and what they practically mean for construction contractors (and their subcontractors) wishing to protest or tender for work on Commonwealth projects. In this Code of Conduct, each of the following bodies is a promotional body: (2) Until 29 November 2018, paragraphs 1 and (3) do not apply to contractors and participants in the construction industry with respect to a company agreement entered into before the commencement of this Code of Conduct. 3.
An enterprise covered by the Code, to the extent reasonably possible, shall take measures to prevent or terminate trade union actions that are not protected by the employees of the enterprise.
