One of the main challenges in developing the provision was to address the different rates of pay and conditions applicable to department staff, some of which were covered by the more generous agreement for customs and border guard officers and another for staff who had left the Immigration and Citizenship Department at the time. In the absence of a bonus or agreement, all employees of the national industrial relations system receive minimum remuneration, conditions and basic protections, in accordance with Commonwealth health and safety laws.

Employers and workers can enter into Individual Flexibility Agreements (IIAs) that change the way a contract of employment or a modern contract of enterprise applies to an employee.

As a result, these factors have no influence on the decision we make, » the decision reads. The main public sector union and the Interior Ministry « crushed him » by negotiating the many allowances available to ministry employees, the industrial arbitrator said in his decision on determining the ministry`s employment. A spokeswoman for the department said the determination and reasons for the decisions were welcomed by the department. Both the union and the department will find victories and losses in the decision, with the entire bank deciding in some cases to side with the department and, in other cases, with the union.
