The National Union of Workers decided on Wednesday (17 July 1996) not to proceed with its applications to vary the Pastrycooks’ &c. (State) Award and the Biscuit & Cake Makers (State) Consolidated Award.

The Union originally applied late last year for both awards to be varied to introduce a 38 hour week, a new skills based classification structure and new pay relativities. The 38 hour week claim was called off a month ago and the union has now informed the State Commission that it is no longer in a position to proceed with the applications at all.

The Union gave no reason for its decision but asked the Commission to stand the matter over generally. The Commission rejected this request but agreed to list the matter for a further mention on 29 August 1996. It is the Chamber’s belief however that the matter is now not likely to proceed before the end of the year.
