Committees

AWCC has a number of committees which represent the interests of its membership divisions
Home Committees

AWCC Ltd has three types of committees designed to ensure the interests of its members are appropriately canvassed and represented to Government in the form of round table discussions, campaigns, submissions and representative committees.

Joint Advisory Committees

Joint Advisory Committees (JACs) are managed by AWCC and are drawn from both membership divisions and may include invited external parties. JACs must have a common interest with all divisions for it to be managed directly by AWCC Ltd instead of at the membership division level. 

The purpose of the Modern Award Joint Advisory Committee (MAJAC) is to:

  1. Provide a cross membership advisory committee to AWCC on modern awards.
  2. Provide advisory and administrative services to support the objectives of AWCC and its membership divisions.
  3. Where tasked by the board, conduct research and draft submissions to Government, including the Fair Work Commission in relation to any review, including improvement of the modern award system.
  4. Assist with any other related modern award task as directed by AWCC, or as recommended by the MAJAC on modern awards and supported by the Chair.

Past Committees
