I wrote a pisstake on AWAs then thought I better check my facts before I posted it.
I honestly thought you were not allowed to discuss the contents of your AWA with other people.
I was wrong. It's one of the prohibited content restrictions.
To whit the following is banned in an AWA
"A term which prohibits or restricts disclosure of details of the workplace agreement by a person bound by the agreement;"
Found it here - though it's obviously on the main workchoices site as well (I just can't be arsed finding it).
I got really riled about this. And I was utterly wrong. In fact it's illegal for an employer not to make available AWA info for employees doing comparable jobs so they can compare and contrast.
So I feel pretty stupid.
HOWEVER I still don't like AWAs and I still think they are a 'fuck you' on workers. But at least you can bitch about it with your co-workers and compare notes.
