Industrial Relations Regulations (Amendment)

Division 9 of Part VI of the Industrial Relations Act 1988 (the Act) established industrial relations machinery, in the form of Port Conciliators and Co-ordinating Committees, for the stevedoring industry.

Section 359 of the Act provides in part that the Governor-General may make regulations for the purposes of the Act.

Division 5 of Part V of the Industrial Relations Regulations (the Regulations) provided for Port Conciliators and Co-ordinating Committees. The Division was no longer required and, for this reason, has been omitted.

Amending regulation 1.1 provides that the amending regulations commenced on the commencement of the relevant Part of the Amendment Act.

Amending regulation 2.1 has omitted Division 9 of Part V of the Regulations.
