A NEW industrial relations entity has been created to help unincorporated Queensland employers when the move to the Federal Fair Work industrial relations system takes place on February 1.
Primary Employers Queensland has been launched by principal Warren Turner as a dedicated mem-bership subscription-based website to provide information and advice which is easily understood and specifically designed to address the particular needs of rural employers.
“There is an enormous amount of confusion surrounding the new IR system, and Primary Employers Queensland’s principal objective is to provide concise information in a user-friendly format,” Mr Turner said.
“We offer a wide range of mem-bership-based services including award and legislation content and obligations, advice on negotiation of agreements, and representation in dispute situations.”
Mr Turner said that with the introduction of the Fair Work Australia Industrial Relations legislation introduced from January 1 (in respect of incorporated employers), there has been a shift in the IR process, with the emphasis moving from traditional award-based processes to a more direct employer/employee relationship reflected through the introduction of workplace agreements.
“PEQ will be an adjunct to Turner IR Queensland Pty Ltd, specialising in the cattle, wool, shearing, feedlot, dairy, cotton and pig-breeding industries,” he said.
Mr Turner has more than 40 years’ experience in IR in Queensland and was the industrial relations director for the United Graziers’ Associa-tion of Queensland Union of Employ- ers for 18 years prior to 1999, when Turner IR was established to special-ise in providing IR consultancy and advocacy services to the pastoral and other rural industries.
