Fair wage agreements are supported by the PPTA and other unions because they are a way to improve our system of employment rights and protection in sectors and sectors where collective agreements have not been successful. In the 2017 election, Labour promised a kind of mandatory sectoral agreements that set minimum standards beyond existing minimum legal standards. Employers` organizations also opposed these agreements. In the working group, employers` representatives refused to support the recommendations, in particular that an agreement be mandatory as soon as an agreement was reached. There has already been broad consensus on these issues on the working group. These proposals are practical, reasonable and fair to everyone. CONCLUSIONS: With the government finally taking a step closer to fair payment agreements by introducing a six-week consultation, it is time to remember what is at stake in this legislation.

On Thursday, Labour Relations Minister Iain Lees-Galloway released consultation papers, including one calling for public contributions to the design of Fair Payment Agreements (FPAs), a “system for protecting workers in vulnerable sectors.” “We will find the most unsatisfactory if they do not keep what was a fairly important promise and commitment,” Said Council of Trade Unions President Richard Wagstaff earlier this week, calling on the government to “continue” and introduce laws allowing agreements.
Fair agreements will ensure that all workers receive a fairer share of our economy`s income. And also over time, because since the 1980s, the share of the labour force in income has declined. More than 10% of the country`s revenues, or more than $20 billion a year, have been transferred from salaries to corporate profits. The discussion paper examines the working group model and examines more detailed options and outstanding issues in the development of its recommendations. A system of fair-pay agreements will consist of several different parts. The consultation was an opportunity to give your thoughts on the different elements and the model as a whole.
