Senator CASH (Western AustraliaMinister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Public Service, Minister for Employment and Minister for Women) (21:02): When you come to the end of the negotiation period—so you have decided to go down the option of the six-month time frame—the release valve—you will basically have the opportunity, if you have not been able to come to an agreement, to go to the Fair Work Commission and the Fair Work Commission will look at the agreement as we have discussed. Alternatively, you could continue to negotiate with the unions if you so choose or, if the Fair Work Commission does not approve the agreement, you could start the clock again.
