REASONS FOR DECISION
 On 21 December 2005, an application was lodged by The Community and Public Sector Union (State Public Services Federation Tasmania) Inc. (CPSU), pursuant to Section 23 of the Industrial Relations Act 1984, to vary the Community and Health Services (Public Sector) Award and the General Conditions of Employment Award.

 Mr Kleyn supported the submissions of Mr Miller.
 Correspondence from the CFMEU supported the application.
 Ms Fitton consented to the application.
