Want to step out of being covered by the ‘one-size-fits-all’ industry award and introduce employment conditions specific to what your staff and your business needs to survive and thrive? Alternatively, do you want to get a much better deal on your upcoming EBA negotiations than your current EBA provides?

Our comprehensive program examines the legislative framework that regulates agreement making, informing you of the temporal and procedural requirements to be observed in industrial negotiations. However, more than that, we will introduce you to sophisticated bargaining theory from academics and successful negotiators and through leaders to maximise your chances of becoming a master negotiator.



Human resources managers

Business owners, line managers and/or supervisors involved in EBA negotiations

Anyone responsible in your organisation for managing staff.


  • Understanding what can be included in enterprise agreements
  • Productivity benefits under EBAs and other employment instruments, and what you can achieve by putting an agreement in place
  • Awareness of the legal requirements for agreement making under legislation
  • Competing bargaining theories and which bargaining theories and techniques are right for you
  • Learning the strategies, processes and tactics involved in negotiating an EBA with trade union officials or your employees directly
  • Strategies and techniques to fully understand and master EBA negotiations
    How to successfully drafting, vote on and lodge your agreement.


This three-hour course can be delivered onsite at your premises. We recommend incorporating your current EBA/employment arrangements into the standard course outline to ensure training is specific to your conditions and practices. Prices start from $499 (plus GST) per person with a minimum of 4 people (does not include time spent on materials customisation).
