Senator WONG (Minister for Climate Change and Water) (6:01 PM) —by leave—I move government amendments (30) and (31) on sheet PA412:

(30)  Schedule 1, page 78 (after line 23), after item 228, insert:

228A  Subclause 26(1) of Schedule 8

Omit “workplace agreement” (first occurring), substitute “pre-transition workplace agreement”.

228B  Subclause 26(1) of Schedule 8

After “section 355”, insert “of the pre-transition Act”.

228C  At the end of subclause 26(1) of Schedule 8

Add “for the purposes of that Act”.

228D  Subclause 26(2) of Schedule 8

After “subsection 355(6)”, insert “of the pre-transition Act”.

228E  Subclause 26(2) of Schedule 8

Omit “workplace agreement”, substitute “pre-transition workplace agreement”.

(31)  Schedule 1, page 79 (after line 28), after item 237, insert:

237A  Subclause 52A(1) of Schedule 8

Omit “workplace agreement” (first occurring), substitute “pre-transition workplace agreement”.

237B  Subclause 52A(1) of Schedule 8

After “section 355”, insert “of the pre-transition Act”.

237C  At the end of subclause 52A(1) of Schedule 8

Add “for the purposes of that Act”.

237D  Subclause 52A(2) of Schedule 8

After “subsection 355(6)”, insert “of the pre-transition Act”.

237E  Subclause 52A(2) of Schedule 8

Omit “workplace agreement”, substitute “pre-transition workplace agreement”.

These amendments provide for the same rules for incorporating terms from state instruments in pretransition workplace agreements as have been provided for federal agreements, to preserve the operation of section 355 for pretransition instruments, despite its repeal.

Question agreed to.
