ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS UPON NOTICE - Employees under Awards and Unregistered Collective Agreements (Question No. 52)


Mr Lynch asked the Minister for Labour, upon notice:

How many employees are covered by (a) Federal awards, (b) State awards and (c) other means such as unregistered collective -agreements.


Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I am;informed that the answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Commonwealth Statistician's most recent survey of the incidence of industrial awards, determinations and collective agreements was made in May 1968. This survey excluded all employees in the Australian Capital Territory, the Northern Territory, rural industry: and private domestic service. Detailed results of the survey were published in Labour Report No. 55, 1970.

The estimated number of employed civilian wags and salary earners in Australia in January 1973 (excluding employees in the Australian Capital Territory, the Northern Territory, . rural industry and private domestic service) derived from the Commonwealth Statistician's preliminary , statement 'Employment Wags and Salary Earners: Australia, January 1973', was 4,467,500.

The number of these employees' in each of the 3 categories as set out below, was calculated by applying the relevant proportion established by the abovementioned survey.
