New Appointment to the Australian Industrial Relations Commission I am pleased to announce the appointment by the Governor-General of Commissioner Patricia Leary of the AIRC to the more senior position of Deputy President. 

The appointment coincides with her appointment as the President of the Tasmanian Industrial Commission. 

It demonstrates in a practical way the commitment of both governments to the ongoing harmonisation of workplace arrangements.

Deputy President Leary will take up both appointments on 1 January 2001.

Deputy President Leary has been an AIRC Commissioner since 1984. 

Her appointment brings to 18 the number of dual appointments made by the Coalition Government.
