The Australian Mines & Metals Association has warned that the Fair Work Commission is under-resourced. AMMA CEO Steve Knott says the Federal Government should appoint up to seven additional FWC members in order to address its heavy workload. He notes that the FWC currently has 39 commissioners, compared with 46 when Labor was last in office in 2013. Knott also supports the Productivity Commission’s recommendation to limit FWC members’ terms to 10 years.
