The Fair Pay Agreements Bill would provide a framework for collective bargaining for fair pay agreements across entire industries or occupations, rather than just between unions and particular employers.

The public has until 11.59pm on Thursday, 19 May 2022 to make a submission on the Parliament website.

The committee will be considering parliamentary paper G.46C alongside the bill. This paper outlines a proposed change to the bill referred to as “the backstop”. If no eligible representative steps forward to be a bargaining party on one side, then the Employment Relations Authority would set the terms of the agreement.
