Industrial Relations

It its most basic form the definition of Industrial Relations is the relations between management and workers in industry. For bowling clubs this means the relations between the club and/or its executive management committee with their employees. Depending upon the size of the club and its nature of operations, the larger the club the more relevant some of the areas of industrial relations will become.

Clubs WA Workplace Relations Service

Clubs WA along with other state bodies formed a company “Clubs Australia Industrial” to represent the employer needs of licensed and registered clubs throughout Australia.

With the advent of the club specific Registered & Licensed Clubs Award 2010 there was increasing pressure to present our WA members with an updated approach which would provide easy access to a superior and most professional Workplace Relations Service.

As part of the national grouping of clubs, Clubs WA has enrolled in a complete information and action service that fulfils the needs of all clubs as employers and contributes to the cost of running this service.

Clubs Australia Industrial will provide Clubs WA member clubs with:
