The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) has made a detailed analysis of what it claims is the effect on business of Labor's new IR policy, as announced at its National Conference in Sydney.

According to ACCI the policy means that for the first time employers can be forced to participate in collective bargaining.

ACCI also claims employers will be forced to:

  • Disclose non-confidential information to trade unions
  • Hand out information sheets to each new employee
  • Pay penalty rates and annual leave loading whether or not employers and employees agree to them
  • Pay minimum wage increases from 1 July each year
  • Abolish all AWAs
  • Bargain on any matter that a union or employees demand

ACCI Chief Executive, Peter Hendy, said Labor's IR policy was a 'great disappointment' to business.
