The full-fledged bank found that acceptance of the commitments was crucial to the Commission`s determination to approve the agreement. The full bank found that, in the present circumstances, the Commission had found a coincidence in approving the agreement, since the commitments could not have been accepted because they were unable to meet the condition set out in item 190(3) (b). Leave of appeal was granted and, given the extent to which the companies had changed the terms of the agreement, the appeal was upheld and the decision was set aside. The Commission found that the nature of the proposed commitments revealed that each of them was working to remedy any financial disadvantages compared to modern procurement. However, when reviewing the companies as a whole, it was clear that they had resulted in substantial changes to the agreement. The companies made changes to wage rates related to the investigations contained in the agreement, the inclusion of new essential elements in the agreement and the inclusion of material allowances that were not previously included in the agreement. Under the Fair Work Act 2009, the following new enterprise agreements can be concluded: workers can take industrial action when negotiating a draft enterprise agreement. There are strict rules governing union action under the Fair Work Act 2009, including the rights, duties and obligations of employers, workers and their organizations.

Under the national labour relations system, there are two categories of agreements: written obligations under Section 190 of the Fair Work Act 2009 An individual enterprise agreement is entered into between a single employer (or more than two employers with only one interest) and workers who are employed at the time of the agreement and who are covered by the agreement.
Employers with a common interest are employers who are in a joint venture or joint venture or who are related companies. They may also be employers approved by the Commission for fair work as an employer with a single interest, which can be either franchised or by other employers, if the Minister of Labour has made a statement. In the first instance, the Commission approved the Lightning Brick Pavers Enterprise Agreement 2017-2021 with companies. The CFMMEU submitted that the Commission had not submitted approval of the agreement for a certificate because the approval was based on the acceptance of commitments that had resulted in substantial changes to the agreement contrary to the Fair Work Act(3). In addition, a worker`s bargaining representative who is covered by the agreement cannot conduct standard negotiations on the agreement. Typical negotiations are those where a negotiator represents two or more proposed enterprise agreements and wants to enter into joint agreements with two or more employers.
