While the Turnbull Government recently introduced legislation to the Parliament to prohibit EBA clauses that restrict an emergency management body’s ability to manage volunteers, this change does not go far enough.

Instead, the Fair Work Act must be amended so that only matters pertaining to the employer-employee relationship are permitted in EBAs. This would not restrict the ability of unions to raise issues of concern with an employer, but would prevent them from using the system to thwart operational decisions with the backing of the Fair Work Commission.
