Enterprise agreements are enterprise-level agreements that set minimum working conditions for a certain group of workers and an employer or employer. Current enterprise agreements for many Hog`s Breath coffee shops across Australia are relics of the Howard government`s « WorkChoices » laws of 2006, which allowed employers to remove basic fees, such as penalties for night and weekend work, minimum work periods and much more. Enterprise agreements are collective agreements between employers and workers on employment conditions. The Fair Labour Commission can provide information on the process of drafting enterprise agreements, evaluate and approve agreements. We can also deal with disputes over the terms of the agreements. Unsurprisingly, the official story of Hog`s Breath fails to mention the practice of the Dinkum`s fair operating chain. Along with Grill`d and Subway, Hog`s Breath was one of the first companies to file Greenfields bare-bones agreements when WorkChoices came into effect in March 2006. Business agreements can be tailored to the needs of some companies. An agreement should be overall better for an employee when compared to the corresponding bonuses or rewards. The Fair Work Commission can also help employers and workers who are embarking on the « New Approaches » program. Learn more about the new approaches on the Fair Labour Commission website. The information and instruments are available on the Commission`s website to support an agreement. Visit an agreement for more details.

In February, United Voice and Socialist Alternative MP Melinda Joseph distributed an open letter to employees at Kelmscott Hog`s Breath Outlet, where she is a waitress. In the letter, Breath`s Collaborators was informed that the WorkChoices era agreement, under which they are paid, is lower than the wage rates prescribed by the restaurant price. Melinda and her employees found that most of them feel worse than the average price of about $60 a week. Their agreement does not provide for penalty interest for weekends and night work and does not offer compensation for the lifting of penalties. Similarly, overtime payments, shift work allowances and annual leave will be removed from the Hog`s Breath agreement. In February, Hog`s Breath Cafe Kelmscott employees asked the Fair Work Commission to terminate their 2007 contract, putting us in a worse position than we would be under the price. As part of this agreement, we are denied penalties and we degrade an average of $59 per week. In addition, after one hour of paid work, we may be removed from a position at home, we do not receive extra work paid for overtime and we have to pay for our uniforms. Fair Work Commission publishes enterprise agreements on this website. With the support of the Immigrant Workers` Union, Kelmscott Hog`s Breath employees asked the Fair Work Commission to terminate the contract that covers them. As Melinda wrote in her letter, in a now well-known history in Australian hospitality, the management of Hog`s Breath retained a shady employment contract that was imposed by the workers` laws of the Howard government.
