- Created: 30 March 2017
The Full Bench unanimously granted an application by The Australian Rail, Tram and Bus Industry Union of Employees, West Australian Branch to approve an agreement between the applicant and its federal body.
The ultimate effect of the Full Bench approving this agreement is that the federal branch of the registered industrial organisation can provide joint services with the state organisation to their members. It also enables the federal organisation to manage the funds and property of the state organisation. This agreement enables the two organisations can operate more efficiently. When the agreement is approved, it is registered as an amendment to the rules of the state organisation.
The process under the Industrial Relations Act allows state and federally registered industrial organisations to have the benefits of running their organisations jointly without the burden of maintaining separate administrative arrangements between state and federal bodies.
