THE AMMA 2013 Tasmania Conference is just three weeks away, and with a high-profile program featuring some of Australia’s political and industry leaders, this is an event not to be missed.

Now into its second year, the AMMA 2013 Tasmania Conference promises to enlighten delegates with the very latest from Australia’s workplace relations sphere, covering a gamut of issues from bullying and discrimination to workplace health and safety.

Spearheading the Conference program will be none other than proud Tasmanian and newly-appointed Minister for Employment, Senator the Hon Eric Abetz.

Sharing first-hand what lies ahead for workplace relations under Australia’s new Coalition Government, Senator Abetz will explain how he will restore the Australian Building and Construction Commission and address employer concerns about union right of entry, enterprise bargaining for new resource projects (greenfields) and a raft of other pressing IR matters.

Joining Senator Abetz will be AMMA’s own senior workplace policy adviser Lisa Matthews, who will map out Labor’s last-minute amendments to Australia’s IR system, covering what changes lie ahead in 2014 and how resource employers can prepare for them.

AMMA principal employee relations consultant Bill FitzGerald will join MMG Rosebery human resources manager David Baker in an interactive panel session, exploring new union right of entry provisions and answering your questions about how resource employers can expect to manage the amendments.

Discussing occupational health and safety issues affecting the resource industry will be Australian Paramedic Association trauma councillor Paul Spings and WorkSafe Tasmania compliance director Neale Buchanan, with a special address from Tasmanian anti-discrimination Commissioner, Robin Banks.

Whether based in Tasmania or mainland Australia, ensure you benefit from this premier event and join us on November 15 at Hobart’s iconic MONA gallery for the AMMA 2013 Tasmania Conference.
