The Fourth Annual Ron McCallum Debate
Tuesday 25 November 2014, 4pm to 6pm
Four Seasons Hotel 199 George Street, Sydney
How do workplace relations shape our society?
Join us for challenging and engaging discussion that will consider the world of work today.
The annual Ron McCallum debate is a fixture on the IR calendar, bringing together hundreds of practitioners, arbitrators and academics.
Past debates have explored the question of what justice at work looks like, the relationship between productivity and our workplace relations system, and the swing of the political pendulum.
This year’s debate will focus on the role employment and workplace relations systems play in determining the nature of our society.
With the Government’s Productivity Commission Inquiry into the industrial system still on the agenda for next year and the ACTU announcing their casual conversion claim as part of the modern award review, we look to explore the interaction between the social impacts of workplace relations and the economic imperatives that underpin much of the IR debate.
Chaired by former FWA and AIRC President Honourable Geoff Guidice AO, with Emeritus Professor Ron McCallum AO providing his reflections, and other expert commentators soon to be announced.
