Industrial Awards

Local Government Modern Industry Awards

Tasmania is the first Local Government Association in Australia to have proactively completed the award modernisation process. LGAT has avoided the continuing complexity of having separate, state-based awards and has been working in partnership with Page Seager as part of its commitment to reducing complexity and, where appropriate, ensuring consistency with industrial relations for all Tasmanian councils.

From the 1st January 2014, council employees (with the exception of General Managers became covered by the Local Government Industry Award.

The Enterprise Awards at Hobart City, Launceston City, Clarence City and Glenorchy City were automatically terminated as of 31 December 2013.

The Municipal Officers Award, Municipal Employees Award, Local Government (Community Services) Award and Local Governing Authorities Tasmania (Superannuation) Award were terminated on 31 December 2013. 

On 15 September 2014, a Full Bench of the Fair Work Commission (FWC) terminated the Municipal Managers (Tasmania) Award 2003.
