Australia - Limitation of the scope of collective bargaining in the construction sector

In the construction sector, industry specific laws further confine the scope of permitted topics for collective agreements. This is because building companies become ineligible to perform work funded by the government if they make collective agreements dealing with particular matters. Those matters include limits on the number of hours that can be worked in a day, requiring the hiring of a minimum ratio of apprentices, safe staffing levels and requirements about pay parity for indirect/agency workers.
