7.          Delete clause 19, State Wage Case Adjustments, and insert in lieu thereof the following new clause:

 

19.  Award Restructuring in the Building and Construction Industry

 

19.1      Guidelines for implementation

 

19.1.1   Clause 18.1 of the National Building and Construction Industry Award 2000 contains a new classification structure consistent with the August 1989 National Wage Case decision (Print H9100).  That new classification structure implements the decisions of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission in Prints K3850, K7300, L2207, L8499, PR912836 and PR921120 of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission.  The new classification structure has been inserted into this Award as a result of the provisions of clause 8 of this Award.

 

19.1.2   The new classification structure in 18.1 shall be read in conjunction with this clause.

 

19.1.3   No existing employee’s rate of pay shall be reduced as a result of the introduction of the new classification structure.

 

19.1.4   Any increase in an employee’s rate of pay arising from minimum rates adjustments may be absorbed into existing over award payments (within the meaning of the Commission’s Principles).

 

19.1.5   Wherever possible, consultative committees comprising equal numbers of employee and employer representatives shall be established.  Matters raised for consideration of the consultative committee shall be related to implementation of the new classification structure, the facilitative provisions contained in this award and matters concerning training.

 

19.2      Definition of key concepts and terms

 

19.2.1               Australian qualifications framework or AQF refers to the system of competency based training and certification.

 

19.2.2               Civil Construction Stream includes all related skills involved in earthmoving and associated activity and does not extend beyond the scope of this award.

 

19.2.3               Fields of work means a defined grouping of logically related skills based on an efficient organisation of work.

 

19.2.4               General Construction Stream includes all fields of work principally concerned with the erection of new structures or buildings (including demolition and pre-construction) and fit out and finishing activities relating to newly constructed or existing buildings or structures, and does not extend beyond the scope of this award.

19.2.5               Industry accredited course or nationally accredited course is a course which has been constructed to reflect a group of standards which the CTA has endorsed as being appropriate combinations of skills to be available to the industry.

 

19.2.6               CTA means Construction Training Australia. CTA shall be the recognised authority (for the purposes of this subclause) responsible for developing competency standards for consideration and endorsement by the National Training Board/Australian National Training Authority.

 

19.2.7               New entrant means an employee who has never previously worked within the scope of any of the following awards:

 

National Building and Construction Industry Award 2000;

 

Building and Construction Industry (ACT) Award 1991, The (Print K0679 (B0171));

Building Crane Drivers (State) Award.

 

including any federal award which was superseded by the making of these awards, or any state counterpart award covering the same industries and/or callings as the federal awards cited.  If there is any doubt as to the status of an employee in this regard, the following documentation may be regarded as prima facie evidence that an employee is not a new entrant:

 

documentary evidence concerning registration with any of the construction industry portable long service leave schemes;

(d)       Under the new classification structure, an employee’s building and construction industry skills are to be formally recognised, industry wide, at all levels from new entrant to Construction Worker Level 8.  Employees will move up the classification structure as they acquire additional accredited skills.  Payment will be on the basis of the level of skills required to perform the work of a particular position or job offered by an employer.
