Reasons for Decision

  1. [1]
    The Tablelands Regional Council has applied to terminate the Tablelands Regional Council 2011 – 2014 – Certified Agreement.  It does so pursuant to s 228(1) of the Industrial Relations Act 2016.
  1. [2]
    The Agreement nominally expired on 30 June 2014. The coverage of this Agreement was, in part, replaced by the Mareeba Shire Council Certified Agreement 2014-2017 in a decision of the Commission given on 1 April 2015. It is the remaining areas of coverage of the 2011 – 2014 Tablelands Agreement that is now replaced by the Tablelands Regional Council Certified Agreement 2018. The effect of the operation of the replacement agreements is that the Tablelands Regional Council 2011 – 2014 – Certified Agreement no longer has any effect, and the relevant parties consent to its termination.
  1. [3]
    Having regard to the affidavit of Kelly Edwards dated 18 December 2018; the exclusion from the agreement of any provisions recording that any particular conditions need to be met before it may be terminated; the Commission's satisfaction that the Council has given notice of its intention to apply to terminate the agreement; the agreement of the other parties to the agreement to the termination of the agreement; and my view that the termination of the agreement is not contrary to the public interest; I have decided to terminate the Tablelands Regional Council 2011 – 2014 – Certified Agreement  with effect from 2 January 2019.
  1. [4]
    I make the following order:
  1. The Tablelands Regional Council 2011 – 2014 – Certified Agreement is terminated.
