Aerocare: FWC will conduct detailed modelling for BOOT test

Posted on October 18, 2019

We have recently been advised by the Fair Work Commission (FWC) that the Commissioner wants to conduct advanced modelling of the 2018 agreement wage rates as part of his assessment for the Better Off Overall Test (BOOT). BOOT requires that each of the employees, who are to be covered by the agreement, are better off overall on the agreement rather than the relevant modern award. This is critical to consider when approving an agreement.

According to the FWC, the data provided by Aerocare has been unsuitable for this process. Further directions have been made requesting for Aerocare to provide data in a more suitable format. You can read the correspondence from the Commissioner here.

Though this will delay the progress of the approval process, it is a positive step forward.

Aerocare are currently working on reformatting the data.

We will keep you updated on any further developments. 

If you have any questions, concerns or require advice, you can email airlines@together.org.au or call 1800 177 244.
