Restoring the ability for employers to engage and negotiate directly with their workforce has underpinned the key recommendations from national resource industry employer group AMMA, in its submission to the Australian Government’s Fair Work Act Review Panel.

Representing all areas of the resource and related construction industry, AMMA’s comprehensive submission examines how the Fair Work Act has failed on its key objectives and puts forth specific reforms that would see a return to mutually rewarding employment relationships in Australian workplaces.

Drawing on empirical evidence from RMIT University’s Workplace Relations Research Project into AMMA members undertaken over a two year period, the submission is underpinned by the direct experiences of employers operating in one of the fastest growing and most globally competitive sectors of the Australian economy.
