The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining & Energy Union has successfully challenged the Fair Work Commission’s decision to approve an enterprise agreement at A1 Earthworx Mining & Civil. The full bench of the FWC overturned the agreement after ruling that some staff would have been paid at 3.8 per cent below the award rates and it would have limited the employees’ access to Sunday penalty rates. The agreement had been approved by deputy president Geoff Bull, who has been ordered to reconsider the agreement.
