A New Work Relations  Architecture

A New Work Relations Architecture draws on years of research by some of Australia’s leading work relations experts and practitioners in academia, business and unions. Written for the Australian Institute of Employment Rights, the book models the most comprehensive and fundamental reform of the work relations system proposed in many years. It is a redesign, from the ground up, that combines the best of the old and the new.

“This book is a significant and welcome contribution to the quest for better industrial relations in Australia. Some of those proposals will inevitably be contentious, and I look forward to hearing all sides in the ensuing debate.”

– Emeritus Professor Keith Hancock, Flinders University
