In response to:
What has been the effect of the removal of the mandatory four-hour minimum deduction of pay for protected employee industrial action? 
Qantas considers that the removal of this provision has significantly changed the balance in bargaining, especially for service-based industries.

Qantas’ view is that the four-hour minimum deduction for an employee engaged in any form of industrial action should be reinstated.

United Voice submitted that the time limit for unfair dismissal applications be increased to at least 21 days.

Allens Arthur Robinson Lawyers submitted that it would assist parties to employment arrangements if they could take advantage of a mechanism to apply to Fair Work Australia (FWA) or the Fair Work Ombudsman (the FWO) for an advance determination as to award coverage and classification for a particular role.

The same law firm commented on union right of entry, saying only the FWO should be entitled to access to non-member records.
