Example text

This would be a particular problem for teacher unions in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia, when the registration of the Union would provide them dual industrial registration with the federal commission and registrations with their own state commissions. Separate legal entities in these states had the potential for divisive competition in teacher unionism. Bevis also tackled the challenge of federal awards, correctly predicting that the introduction of a federal award for school teachers would have more impact on state unions than the act of registration.

This latter strategy had both the potential and the actuality to create inter-union tension, something that the state bodies and the Union wished to avoid. At the state level, it gave cause for further delays in defining eligibility rules for the Union. ) Overall, it would take over 18 months (well into 1990) before the rule-making efforts of the Union satisfied the scrutinies of its lawyers. Other changes in rules relating to affiliation with the ACTU and WCOTP proceeded almost immediately once both peak-organisations provided assurances that it would be easy for the Union to replace the Federation providing it also met basic conditions of membership.

Both groups helped to refine the ACTU’s plan for union reform by including as a major plank the union movement’s need to increase representation of women in individual unions’ governing bodies and the ACTU itself. The ATF women’s group was thus able to influence new ACTU policy approaches to superannuation provisions for women, improvements in childcare arrangements and the continuing lack of equal pay for equal work in the wider Australian workforce. The success of the ATF and other white-collar union women officers in these internal processes was obvious from the policy outcomes which occurred in the ACTU Congresses of the late 1980s; the difficulty was to convince the ACTU leadership that these should be implemented with the same vigour used to pursue its more traditional industrial policies.
