The current head of the AIRC, Justice Geoffrey Guidice, will head the Federal Government’s new Fair Work Australia industrial umpire.
 
IR Minister Julia Gillard made the announcement on Friday, acknowledging his decade of service to the AIRC.
 
She said Fair Work Australia would provide a one-stop-shop for advice and support on all workplace relations issues and enforcement of legal entitlements.
 
Gillard said executive director, Marion van Rooden and the Establishment Taskforce, which includes each of the existing workplace relations agency heads and senior executives from the Department of Education, Employment & Workplace Relations, are working to have Fair Work Australia ‘open for business’ from 1 July 2009.
 
Senior positions advertised
 
The Government has promised a merit-based and transparent approach to senior appointments, with two new statutory positions within Fair Work Australia being advertised — the general manager of Fair Work Australia and the Fair Work Ombudsman.
 
As announced previously, the existing full-time members of the AIRC will be offered roles in Fair Work Australia.
 
Employees of the agencies to be abolished will be transferred to positions in the new Fair Work Australia institutions or other appropriate positions consistent with the Public Service Act 1999 as in any machinery of government change.
