1.                      Title and Commencement

1.1                   This award is the Airservices Australia Award 2015.

1.2                   This award commences on 30 May 2016.

1.3                   This award supersedes the Airservices Australia Award 2000. The replacement of the predecessor award by the this award does not affect any right or liability that a person acquired, accrued or incurred under the predecessor award.

1.4                   The monetary obligations imposed on employers by this award may be absorbed into overaward payments. Nothing in this award requires Airservices to maintain or increase any overaward payment.

1.5                   The making of this award is not intended to result in a reduction in the take-home pay of employees covered by the award. On application by or on behalf of an employee who suffers a reduction in take-home pay as a result of the making of this award or the operation of any transitional arrangements, the Fair Work Commission may make any order it considers appropriate to remedy the situation.

2.                      The National Employment Standards and this award

2.1                   The National Employment Standards (NES) and entitlements in this award contain the minimum conditions of employment for employees covered by this award.

2.2                   Airservices must ensure that copies of this award and the NES are available to all employees to whom they apply either on a noticeboard which is conveniently located at or near the workplace or through electronic means, whichever makes them more accessible.

2.3                   Where this award refers to a condition of employment provided for in the NES, the NES definition applies.

3.                      Coverage

3.1                   Employer and employees

(a)          This enterprise award covers Airservices Australia and its employees in the classifications listed in Schedule A—Classification definitions to the exclusion of any other modern award.

(b)         This enterprise award does not cover an employee excluded from award coverage by the Act.

4.                      Award flexibility

4.1                   Notwithstanding any other provision of this award, Airservices and an individual employee may agree to vary the application of certain terms of this award to meet the genuine individual needs of Airservices and the individual employee. The terms Airservices and the individual employee may agree to vary the application of are those concerning:

(a)          arrangements for when work is performed;

(b)         overtime rates;

(c)          penalty rates; and

(d)         allowances.

4.2                   Airservices and the individual employee must have genuinely made the agreement without coercion or duress. An agreement under this clause can only be entered into after the individual employee has commenced employment with the employer.

4.3                   The agreement between Airservices and the individual employee must:

(a)          be confined to a variation in the application of one or more of the terms listed in clause 4.1; and

(b)         result in the employee being better off overall at the time the agreement is made than the employee would have been if no individual flexibility agreement had been agreed to.

4.4                   The agreement between Airservices and the individual employee must also:

(a)          be in writing, name the parties to the agreement and be signed by Airservices and the individual employee and, if the employee is under 18 years of age, the employee’s parent or guardian;

(b)         state each term of this award that Airservices and the individual employee have agreed to vary;

(c)          detail how the application of each term has been varied by agreement between Airservices and the individual employee;

(d)         detail how the agreement results in the individual employee being better off overall in relation to the individual employee’s terms and conditions of employment; and

(e)          state the date the agreement commences to operate.

4.5                   Airservices must give the individual employee a copy of the agreement and keep the agreement as a time and wages record.

4.6                   Except as provided in clause 4.4(a) the agreement must not require the approval or consent of a person other than Airservices and the individual employee.

4.7                   Airservices seeking to enter into an agreement must provide a written proposal to the employee. Where the employee’s understanding of written English is limited Airservices must take measures, including translation into an appropriate language, to ensure the employee understands the proposal.

4.8                   The agreement may be terminated:

(a)          by Airservices or the individual employee giving 13 weeks’ notice of termination, in writing, to the other party and the agreement ceasing to operate at the end of the notice period; or

(b)         at any time, by written agreement between Airservices and the individual employee.

4.9                   Note: If any of the requirements of section 144(4), which are reflected in the requirements of this clause, are not met then the agreement may be terminated by either the employee or the employer, giving written notice of not more than 28 days (see section 145 of the Act).

4.10               The right to make an agreement pursuant to this clause is in addition to, and is not intended to otherwise affect, any provision for an agreement between Airservices and an individual employee contained in any other term of this award.

5.                      Facilitative Provisions

5.1                   This award contains facilitative provisions which allow agreement to be reached between Airservices and employees on how specific award provisions are to apply at the workplace level. The facilitative provisions are those identified at clause 5.3.

5.2                   The specific award provisions establish both the standard award condition and the framework within which agreement can be reached as to how the particular provision should be applied in practice. Facilitative provisions are not to be used as a device to avoid award obligations, nor should they result in unfairness to an employee or employees covered by this award.

5.3                   The following facilitative provisions can be utilised upon agreement between Airservices and the majority of employees affected in the workplace, provided that the agreement complies with clause 5.4(a):

The union must be given a reasonable opportunity to participate in the negotiations regarding the proposed implementation of a facilitative provision. Union involvement does not mean that the consent of the union is required prior to the introduction of agreed facilitative arrangements;

11.11           Payment of wages

(a)          Wages must be paid fortnightly according to the actual ordinary hours worked each week or according to the average number of ordinary hours worked each week.

(b)         Wages must either be paid by cash, cheque or electronic funds transfer into the bank or financial institution account nominated by the employee.

11.12           Higher duties

(a)          Where an employee has been directed to temporarily perform duties at a higher classification level the following provisions apply:

(i)           Higher duties allowance

An employee directed to perform all or part of the duties of a higher classification will be paid an allowance equal to the difference between the employee’s own ordinary rate and the ordinary rate the employee would receive if promoted to the higher classification or an alternative amount determined by Airservices where partial performance is directed. When calculating an employee’s ordinary rate, higher duties allowance (if payable) will be included.

(ii)         Minimum period

An employee who is directed to perform continuous higher duties for more than four hours on any one day or shift will be regarded as being on higher duties for that full day or shift. The performance of higher duties for less than four hours on any day or shift will be disregarded for all purposes.

(iii)       Higher duties allowance on leave

Where an employee is absent on paid leave or observes a Public Holiday, and has been directed to perform duties at a higher classification, payment of a higher duties allowance will continue during the absence as if the employee was at work, to the extent of the continued operation of the direction. If the period of paid leave is less than full pay, the payment of the higher duties allowance is adjusted accordingly.

11.13           Composite Rate – Aviation Rescue Fire Fighters

In addition to the minimum rates in clause 11.7 above, Aviation Rescue Fire Fighters who are rostered to work on shift will be paid a composite rate of 34.85% of the appropriate base salary in lieu of ordinary duty, shift and weekend penalty rates and public holiday penalties.

(a)          The commuted allowance shall be excluded for the purpose of calculating overtime or emergency duty which shall be based on the minimum rate set out in clause 11.7 above.

(b)         For the purposes of the Superannuation Act 1976 and the Long Service Leave (Commonwealth Employees) Act 1976, the commuted allowance shall be taken into account in the same manner as the superseded penalty payments covered by this Award.

11.14           Composite Rate—Air Traffic Controllers and Unit Tower Supervisors

When calculating the minimum rate and salary-based allowances for eligible Air Traffic Controllers and Unit Tower Supervisors, the order in which the composite salary will be constructed is as follows: minimum rate for the classification, plus Simultaneous Operations Allowance (where applicable) plus Complexity Allowance (where applicable) plus relevant shift penalties.

15.                 Superannuation

[Varied by PR771417]

15.1               Superannuation legislation

[15.1 substituted by PR771417 ppc 09Apr24]

(a)          The NES and Superannuation legislation, including the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 (Cth), the Superannuation Guarantee Charge Act 1992 (Cth), the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (Cth) and the Superannuation (Resolution of Complaints) Act 1993 (Cth), deal with the superannuation rights and obligations of employers and employees.

(b)         The rights and obligations in clause 15 supplement those in superannuation legislation and the NES.

NOTE: Under superannuation legislation:

(a) Individual employees generally have the opportunity to choose their own superannuation fund.

(b) If a new employee does not choose a superannuation fund, the employer must ask the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) whether the employee is an existing member of a stapled superannuation fund and, if stapled fund details are provided by the ATO, make contributions to the stapled fund.

(c) If an employee does not choose a superannuation fund and does not have a stapled fund, the choice of superannuation fund requirements will be satisfied by contributions made to a superannuation fund nominated in the award covering the employee, provided the fund is able to accept contributions for the benefit of the employee.

(d) A fund may not be able to accept contributions for the benefit of an employee if the employee would be a new member of the fund’s MySuper product and the MySuper product is closed to new members because it has failed the performance tests of Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) for 2 consecutive years.

15.2               Employer contributions

Airservices must make such superannuation contributions to a superannuation fund for the benefit of an employee as will avoid Airservices being required to pay the superannuation guarantee charge under superannuation legislation with respect to that employee.

15.3               Voluntary employee contributions

(a)          Subject to the governing rules of the relevant superannuation fund, an employee may, in writing, authorise their employer to pay on behalf of the employee a specified amount from the post-taxation wages of the employee into the same superannuation fund as Airservices makes the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 15.2.

(b)         An employee may adjust the amount the employee has authorised their employer to pay from the wages of the employee from the first of the month following the giving of three months’ written notice to their employer.

(c)          Airservices must pay the amount authorised under clauses 15.3(a) or (b) no later than 28 days after the end of the month in which the deduction authorised under clauses 15.3(a) or (b) was made.

15.4               Superannuation fund

[15.4 varied by PR771417 ppc 09Apr24]

Unless, to comply with superannuation legislation, the employer is required to make the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 15.2. to another superannuation fund, the employer must make the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 15.2. and pay any amount authorised under clauses 15.3(a) or 15.3(b) to one of the following superannuation funds or its successor, provided that, in respect of new employees, the fund is able to accept new beneficiaries:

(a)          AvSuper; or

(b)         any superannuation fund to which Airservices was making superannuation contributions for the benefit of its employees before 12 September 2008, provided the superannuation fund is an eligible choice fund and is a fund that offers a MySuper product or is an exempt public superannuation sector scheme; or

(c)          a superannuation fund or scheme which the employee is a defined benefit member of.

for an ongoing or fixed period.

(c)          Part-time employees will be entitled to leave under clause 18.3(a) only where the employee has a shift pattern involving the regular performance of rostered duty on Sundays and Public Holidays and involving not less than five shifts per week or an average of not less than the number of shifts per week of an equivalent full-time employee.

18.4               Excess leave

Notwithstanding section 88 of the Act, if Airservices has genuinely tried to reach agreement with an employee as to the time of taking annual leave, Airservices can require the employee to take annual leave by giving at least 28 days’ notice of the time when such leave is to be taken if:

(a)          at the time the direction is given, the employee has 8 weeks or more (10 if the employee is a shiftworker) of accrued annual leave; and

20.2               In addition to the entitlements in the NES, an employee who is not a casual employee is entitled to maternity leave as if the Maternity Leave (Commonwealth Employees) Act 1973 applied to Airservices. References in that legislation to the relevant Secretary will be read as the Chief Executive Officer of Airservices.

22.3               An employee, by agreement with Airservices, may substitute another day for any public holiday.

22.4               Public holidays on rostered days off – shiftworker

If a shiftworker is rostered off on a public holiday, the employee is entitled to take an additional day’s leave to substitute for the missed public holiday. Where it is not practical to grant the day’s leave within a month of the public holiday, the employee will receive an additional day’s pay at the employee’s ordinary rate.

23.                 Termination of employment

23.1               Notice of termination of employment is provided for in the NES.

23.2               Notice of termination by an employee

The notice of termination required to be given by an employee is the same as that required of Airservices except that there is no requirement on the employee to give additional notice based on the age of the employee concerned. If an employee fails to give the required notice Airservices may withhold from any monies due to the employee on termination under this award or the NES, an amount not exceeding the amount the employee would have been paid under this award in respect of the period of notice required by this clause less any period of notice actually given by the employee.

23.3               Job search entitlement

Where Airservices has given notice of termination to an employee, an employee must be allowed up to one day’s time off without loss of pay for the purpose of seeking other employment. The time off is to be taken at times that are convenient to the employee after consultation with Airservices.

23.4               Payment of accrued annual leave on termination of employment

Where employment ceases, the employee will be entitled to payment in lieu of accrued annual leave. Payment in lieu will be calculated using the employee’s final rate of salary, including allowances that would have been included during annual leave.

23.5               Recognition of service – trainees

Where a trainee is engaged for a fixed term period for the purposes of a traineeship and upon successful completion of the traineeship:

(a)          the trainee commences ongoing employment with Airservices immediately following the end of the traineeship; or

(b)         the trainee does not commence ongoing employment with Airservices immediately following the end of the traineeship but does commence ongoing employment within six months from the end of the traineeship,

the full period of the employee’s traineeship will count as service.

24.                 Redundancy

24.1               Redundancy pay is provided for in the NES. The following provisions supplement the NES.

24.2               Excess employee

An employee is an excess employee if:

(a)          the employee is included in a class of employees employed by Airservices, which class comprises a greater number of employees than is necessary for the efficient and economical working of Airservices;

(b)         the services of the employee cannot be effectively used because of technological or other changes in the work methods of Airservices or changes in the nature, extent or organisation of the functions of Airservices; or

(c)          the duties usually performed by the employee are to be performed at a different locality, the employee is not willing to perform duties at the locality and Airservices determines that the provisions of this clause apply to that employee.

24.3               Entitlement

(a)          An excess eligible employee whose employment is terminated will be entitled to be paid redundancy pay (which includes any NES entitlement) of a sum equal to two weeks’ salary for each completed year of continuous service with Airservices, plus a pro rata payment for completed months of service since the last completed year of service, unless the NES provides a greater benefit.

(b)         For the purposes of this clause 24.3, salary includes any allowances specified in this Award as being included in the employees’ ordinary rate, but does not include:

(i)           shift and weekend penalty rates and public holiday penalties; or

(ii)         the composite allowance specified in clause 11.13.

(c)          Where an employee has been acting at a higher classification level for a continuous period of at least twelve months immediately preceding the date on which he or she receives notice of retirement, the salary level will be the employee’s salary at the higher level as at the date of termination.

Note: As at the date of commencement of the award, the NES provides for an entitlement to 6 weeks’ redundancy pay to an employee who has completed at least two years, but less than three years continuous service with an employer.

24.4               Minimum and maximum payments

The minimum sum payable as redundancy pay on termination will be four weeks’ salary and the maximum sum payable will be 48 weeks’ salary.

24.5               Pro rata entitlement

Redundancy pay will be calculated on a pro rata basis where the employee has worked part-time hours during the period of service and the employee has less than 24 years full-time service, subject to any minimum entitlement the employee has under the NES.

24.6               Transfer to lower paid duties

Where an employee is transferred to lower paid duties by reason of redundancy, the same period of notice must be given as the employee would have been entitled to if the employment had been terminated and Airservices may, at Airservices’ option, make payment instead of an amount equal to the difference between the former ordinary time rate of pay and the ordinary time rate of pay for the number of weeks of notice still owing.

24.7               Period of notice – termination of employment

Where the employment of an excess employee is terminated, the period of notice will be four weeks. In the case of an employee over 45 years of age with at least five years of continuous service, the period of notice will be five weeks.

24.8               Employee leaving during notice period

An employee given notice of termination in circumstances of redundancy may terminate their employment during the period of notice. The employee is entitled to receive the benefits and payments they would have received under this clause had they remained in employment until the expiry of the notice, but is not entitled to payment instead of notice.

24.9               Job search entitlement

(a)          An employee given notice of termination in circumstances of redundancy must be allowed up to one day’s time off without loss of pay during each week of notice for the purpose of seeking other employment.

(b)         If the employee has been allowed paid leave for more than one day during the notice period for the purpose of seeking other employment, the employee must, at the request of Airservices, produce proof of attendance at an interview or they will not be entitled to payment for the time absent. For this purpose a statutory declaration is sufficient.
