WA this week 10 years ago - Alcoa’s workplace agreements

ALCOA of Australia Ltd completed a series of collective agreements with unions to cover more than 2,000 employees on its extensive WA bauxite mining and alumina refining operations. Under the agreements, the unions and their members must work in a “fully flexible manner” with no job demarcations between the various unions and staffing levels to be determined according to what is “safe, efficient, logical and legal”. Annual salaries with no overtime allowances would replace traditional award pay systems of base wages, plus overtime.
