Please note that in 1998, individual agreements were certified for each health service for registered nurses, with some differences between them. Only a representative sample is available below. Agreements are negotiated more regularly (usually every 2 or 3 years) between unions and employers and registered by the Western Australian Industrial Relations Board (WAIRC). After registration, the provisions of the contract apply to all workers at the workplace who perform work covered by the employment contract. Please visit the Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission website for the most recent list of awards and agreements in force for the public sector in Western Australia. The rewards open up the minimum conditions of employment and serve as a safety net. Agreements are collective agreements that set out other conditions of employment and rights for certain workers and their employers. . . .
