Sydney Airport Enterprise Agreement

The Fair Work Commission has denounced a wage deal that has led aviation workers to sleep between their shifts on temporary beds at Sydney International Airport. Hamberger said the terms of the deal were “less advantageous to a considerable number of Aerocare employees than those provided for in the award.” Congratulations! The vote of Healthscope`s directors on your proposed company agreement yielded a result that indicates the approval of the majority of employees. Former FWC vice president Graeme Watson approved the Aerocare company deal in February 2013 and said it had passed the so-called “Better Off” test. This test ensures that, on the whole, under a proposed company agreement, workers have resolved better than under the corresponding arbitration award. Aerocare, which provides baggage handling, aircraft loading, towing and other air services to some of Australia`s largest airlines, including Qantas and Jetstar, Virgin and Singapore Airlines. This means that the price would apply to employees of Aerocare (Swissport) and the company would not be able to require its employees to work in separate shifts. . . .
