Reasons for Decision

  1. [1]
    Stadiums Queensland has made an application to certify an agreement pursuant to section 189 of the Industrial Relations Act 2016. As required by s 189(3) of the Act, the application was made within 21 days of the date on which the agreement was made. The agreement is between:
  • Stadiums Queensland (the "employer"); and
  • all employees employed by the employer (with the exception of staff on individual contracts and event day casuals); and
  • The Australian Workers' Union of Employees, Queensland; and
  • The Electrical Trades Union of Employees, Queensland; and
  • Together Queensland, Industrial Union of Employees; and
  • United Voice, Industrial Union of Employees, Queensland.
  1. [2]
    In proceedings on 9 June 2020 the Commission as presently constituted certified the agreement.   
  1. [3]
    In certifying the agreement, the Commission recognises that:[1] each relevant requirement under subdivision 2 of Division 2 of Part 5 of the Act has been satisfied;[2] and, that there was nothing in the agreement which would require the Commission to refuse to grant the application under subdivision 3 of Division 2 of Part 5 of the Act.[3]
  1. [4]
    The agreement operates from the day it was certified, namely 9 June 2020.[4]  Although the nominal expiry date of the agreement is 31 July 2023, the agreement continues to operate until it is terminated under s 227 or s 228 of the Act.
  1. [5]
    The application to certify the Stadiums Queensland Staff Certified Agreement 2019 is granted.  
  1. [6]
    I make the following order:
  1. The Stadiums Queensland Staff Certified Agreement 2019 is certified.
