Some employees are not covered by a bonus or enterprise agreement. These workers are subject to a national minimum wage scheme for a minimum wage safety net. If you are not covered by an agreement, your minimum wages and conditions will probably be set by a modern premium. Enterprise agreements and modern bonuses contain minimum rights for wages and conditions of employment. Enterprise agreements must not contain illegal content (for example. B discriminatory or offensive conditions). Acting General Manager Steve Thomas says the GRDC has been able to present employees with a rewarding offer within the parameters of the current business bargaining framework. National Employment Standards (NES) are minimum standards that cannot be overturned by the terms of agreements or business bonuses. As a Commonwealth company, GRDC is one of 15 rural RDCs that promotes innovations that improve the profitability and competitiveness of Australia`s agricultural sector. „The GDC has set ambitious targets and is implementing a long-term strategy to create sustainable profitability for Australian grain farmers.“ Negotiations were conducted in a professional and efficient manner, and all parties know that the date of the last Bundestag elections interrupted the previous round of negotiations in 2013. We are confident that this agreement can be concluded and implemented quickly. „For example, through strategic investments by GRDC and its directors, Australian scientists have developed a new tool to better determine when to act against Russian aphids to reduce crop losses.“ Our employees are delighted with their role, the know-how they bring to the corporation and the value GRDC creates for Australian grain farmers.
„Directors will raise about $114 million in grain taxes and about $60 million in state resources.“ I congratulate the new directors and look forward to cooperation for the good of our rural and regional communities. „I am convinced that the new board members are the right people to guide the GRDC through the challenges that lie ahead.“ GrDC also organizes a series of half-day forums focused on reducing crop losses, controlling harvest grass and preventing harvest fires. „With a new agreement related to our ongoing organizational and strategic transformation, we are ensuring that GRDC is able to continue its important role in Australian science and agriculture,“ said Thomas. „This work by the GRDC management team will allow breeders, consultants and contractors to learn from industry experts about strategies to improve harvesting practices. Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management Minister David Littleproud has appointed the next non-executive directors of the Grains Research Development Corporation (GRDC) for a three-year term, which began on October 1, 2020. Minister Littleproud stated that of the seven appointees, there were three renewals and four new appointees. „I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing directors for the leadership, skills and expertise they brought to the GRDC`s business during their appointments.“ „GRDC is a specialized organization that employs a number of highly qualified people across Australia, which is why it was essential to meet our reasonable conditions so that we continue to attract and pay high-level employees.“ The appointment of the next non-executive directors is of the utmost importance for the achievement of the priorities outlined in the GRDC`s research, development and expansion plan for 2018-2023,“ said Minister Littleproud. „Research and development, led by GRDC, benefits our hard-working grain farmers and ensures that more grain is dumped in the garbage and that there is more money in their pockets.
