Reasons for Decision

    The Winton Shire Council 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 the Winton Shire Council and the following employee organisations:
  • The Australian Workers' Union of Employees, Queensland;
  • Queensland Services, Industrial Union of Employees; and
  • the Construction, Forestry, Mining & Energy, Industrial Union of Employees, Queensland.

    The agreement is to apply to Winton Shire Council and all of its employees for whom classifications and rates of pay are prescribed in the agreement.

    In proceedings on 28 January 2020 the Commission as presently constituted certified the agreement.
  1. [4]
    I note that the agreement is signed by all of the listed parties.[1]
  1. [5]
    In certifying the agreement, the Commission recognises that[2] each relevant requirement under subdivision 2 of Division 2 of Part 5 of the Act has been satisfied;[3] 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.[4]

    The agreement operates from the day it was certified, namely 28 January 2020.[5]  The nominal expiry date of the agreement is 28 January 2023, however, the agreement continues to operate until it is terminated under s 227 or s 228 of the Act.
  1. [7]
    The application to certify the Winton Shire Council Certified Agreement 2019 is granted.

    I make the following order:
