    Master Builders Australia (MBA)

    Master Builders Australia (MBA) announces the release of the 5th edition of its Modern Award Manual.

    Designed to provide employers with comprehensive and up-to-date guidance on the primary modern award for the building and construction industry, the Building and Construction General On-Site Award 2010, the publication is available with the National Employment Standards (NES) Booklet as modified by the On-Site Award.

    Mr Richard Calver, National Director Industrial Relations and Legal Counsel, Master Builders explains that the updated edition of the Modern Award Manual is an essential workplace relations guide for employers, helping them negotiate over 60 separate allowances and a cut-and-paste collection of antique provisions, particularly about outdated work health and safety issues.

    The Building and Construction General On-Site Award 2010, together with the NES, sets the minimum standards for all employees in the building and construction industry.

    Mr Calver said that the latest edition of the Modern Award Manual has been substantially expanded to analyse the Building and Construction General On-Site Award 2010 on a clause-by-clause basis. Updated annually from 1 July for the Fair Work Commission’s minimum wage decisions, it also provides links to key interpretations by the Fair Work Commission, practical examples and essential historical and industrial relations perspectives. An update from the major changes to apprenticeship conditions that started on 1 January 2014 is also included.

    The Modern Award Manual and the NES publication may be purchased from Master Builders Australia.
