Employment Relations Amendment Bill

Proposed amendment

Dr David Clark, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 2

In clause 2, replace months (page 7, line 5) with years.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the commencement date of this Bill from 4 months to 4 years. This ensures employers, unions, and workers have more time to consider and adapt to the changes proposed. It will also ensure the changes around collective bargaining and multi employer collective agreements do not affect negotiations currently underway or agreements soon to expire.
