Submissions from parties to the federal Metal Industry Award 1984 on the award simplification process concluded yesterday (23 February 1998) before Senior Deputy President Marsh of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission. Submissions were also made by the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Commonwealth Government.

Previous HR Links have referred to the award simplification process where the federal Workplace Relations Act 1996requires all federal awards to be reduced so that they contain only those matters that are allowable under section 89Aof the Actor are incidental to an allowable matter and necessary for the effective operation of the award.

Submissions made by the parties for the simplification of the Metal Industry Award addressed the implications of the Hospitality Award Test Case (Print P7500, [1997] 1533 IRCommA) (See HR Link dated 23 December 1997, No 193/97) and the principles established by the Commission in that decision, particularly in regard to the use of facilitative provisions, clauses in awards that deal with training and apprenticeships, and majority clauses.

Senior Deputy President Marsh has reserved her decision.
