T1779 - Robinson - 7 February
IN THE TASMANIAN INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION
Industrial Relations Act 1984
Further to the decision of the Full Bench in Matter T.1779 of 1988 proceedings in relation to these three awards were commenced on the motion of the Commission pursuant to Section 24(3) of the Industrial Relations Act 1984.
The purpose of the hearing was to include the Hospital Employees Federation of Australia, Tasmania Branch in Clause 6 - Parties and Persons Bound of the General Conditions of Service; Clerical Employees; and Junior Employees (Public and Mental Health Services) Awards in lieu of the Hospital Employees Federation of Tasmania, No. 1 and No. 2 Branches.
The latter organisations amalgamated consequential to a rule change of the Hospital Employees Federation of Australia, endorsed by the Federal Deputy Industrial Registrar effective from 3 January 1989.
In respect of this foreshadowed outcome the Full Bench stated, inter alia, on 21 December 1988:
"In order therefore to facilitate the amalgamation in this State, the Bench confirms the cancellation of the HEF No. 2 in accordance with Section 68(3) of the Act, operative from the same date as determined by the Federal Registrar."
2. Therefore, having regard to the decision of the Bench and the rule changes effected by the Federal Deputy Industrial Registrar, the awards will be varied in the terms outlined above.
Orders are attached.
