The Fair Work Commission publishes company agreements on this website. Corporate bargaining is an Australian term for a form of collective bargaining in which wages and working conditions are negotiated at the level of individual organisations, as opposed to sectoral collective bargaining in all sectors. Once established, they are legally binding on employers and employees covered by the trade negotiation agreement. A company agreement (EE) is a collective agreement between an employer and a union acting on behalf of employees, or an employer and employees acting on their own behalf. Employees must support the agreement by voting in favour of it. Voting may not take place until at least 21 days after the date on which workers have been informed of their right to a bargaining representative. Organizations that are bargaining representatives (employers, employers` associations and trade unions) for a proposed company agreement must disclose certain financial benefits that they (or certain related parties) receive (or could receive) due to a duration of the proposed agreement. A bargaining representative is a person or organization that can designate any party to the company agreement to represent during the negotiation process.

A greenfields agreement is a company agreement that is entered into in relation to a new business of the employer or employers before the employees are employed.

This can be a single company agreement or a multi-company agreement. The parties to a greenfields agreement are the employer (or employer in a multi-greenfield agreement) and one or more relevant workers` associations (usually a trade union). Unlike a modern price or National Employment Standards (NES), a company agreement gives employers and employees the freedom to negotiate better wages, more flexibility and working conditions that meet their individual needs. In addition, a negotiator for an employee covered by the agreement cannot conduct standard negotiations with respect to the agreement. Typical negotiations occur when a negotiator represents two or more proposed company agreements and seeks joint agreements with two or more employers. However, these are not model negotiations if the negotiator is really trying to reach an agreement. A registered agreement establishes the working conditions between an employee or group of employees and one or more employers. Although bonuses cover the minimum wage and conditions of an industry, company agreements can cover specific agreements for a particular company. As soon as the negotiations on the company agreement between the representative parties have been concluded, the agreement must be put to the vote. All employees covered by the current agreement have the right to vote on the agreement.

If a majority of employees who voted validly approve the agreement, the company agreement will be submitted to the FWC for approval. Company agreements are collective agreements concluded at company level between employers and employees on working and employment conditions. .
