In determining whether it is “appropriate” to denounce the agreement, the Commission will consider all the circumstances, including: an interesting example of what can be done concerns McDonalds. In the McDonald`s case (2010), McDonald`s held meetings with staff to explain the new agreement, using a large number of meeting places to encourage participation, including the rental of movie theaters. The union, in agreement with McDonald`s, prepared summaries of the agreement that outlined the differences between the terms of the contract and the current terms. Staff were allowed to do certification work or access electronic versions and copies on warning signs. Other meetings were organized by the union, during which explanations were given and questions were asked. Staff were also able to contact each state`s human resources department for clarification. The FWC decided that these were appropriate measures to ensure that the declaration was given appropriately, taking into account the needs of workers, including young people. As a result, a fundamental step in an EA`s life cycle is that the employer determines how it will deal with the EA once it reaches its nominal expiration date. Given the risks associated with the continued implementation of the agreement, employers must be careful to avoid situations where workers are disadvantaged from modern minimum requirements or where the terms of the agreement become unattractive to the employer due to emerging economic conditions. However, it is easier to reach agreement in sectors where firms are under competitive pressure, including market conditions that are beyond the control of local firms. For example, workers can agree to reduce the level of wages in enterprise agreements negotiated under better working conditions, in order to remain competitive and save jobs. In this case, the level of wages could be reduced to the rates paid in the underlying premium. 2.
The downward trend in Murdoch University`s financial and operational activities has been demonstrated. One of the topics discussed by the university was that the termination of the enterprise agreement would remove the restrictions and allow the university to be more agile in a difficult market. The university identified specific provisions of the agreement that it considered problematic and provided evidence as to why they were problematic.
