Proposed Award Changes


MTA (NT) is keeping a very close eye on some proposed changes to the Vehicle Manufacturing, Repair, Services and Retail

Award 2010 (MA 000089) and other related industrial items such as the definition of a casual worker which members will need to keep an eye on.  There are three major items being proposed:

  1. The removal of the Manufacturing elements of the award as car manufacturing is wound down in the lead up to December 2017 which makes sense
  2. Changes to the definitions of casual and part time employment provisions &
  3. The introduction of an allowance that will make up for the shortfall between what an employee earns as part of their ordinary earnings and the default amount paid if the worker is on workers compensation.

Members will be informed of these changes as they are finalised.
