Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission

Further conference convened in Police dispute

The Commission sitting as the Public Service Arbitrator today convened a further compulsory conference under s 44 of the Industrial Relations Act 1979 (WA) concerning the present police dispute. This course was foreshadowed in the Commission’s orders and recommendation issued on 27 September 2017.

As mentioned in the Commission’s earlier statement of 27 September 2017, the Commissioner of Police’s final offer for a new industrial agreement was put to the Union on 22 September 2017. The Union has now formally rejected the offer.

At today’s compulsory conference, possible options for a limited arbitration of issues in dispute under s 42G of the Act were discussed. This course requires both parties to agree on matters to be referred to arbitration. The conference concluded on the basis that the Union will further consider its position and report back to the Commission by close of business Thursday, 12 October 2017.
