Enterprise Bargaining and Negotiation

Prepare, bargain, succeed

When it comes to enterprise bargaining, the key to success is smart, thorough preparation.

You need to understand the current state of play between you, your employees and the union, what’s happening elsewhere in your industry, what are the non-negotiables and where there’s room for movement.

Our enterprise bargaining experts help management teams prepare for negotiations and coach them to make sure they’re ready for the bargaining table. While we help your business get the best deal possible, we’re pragmatic too. Our focus is on helping you reach a realistic, workable agreement in a quick, efficient and cordial way.

Learn to bargain with a union as you would with any commercial partner: open and ready to listen, while also confident and well-informed.

We can help with:

  • Enterprise bargaining strategy
  • Tactics
  • Processes
  • Evaluating both parties’ bargaining power
  • Timing
  • Mandates
  • Wages benchmarking reports

"Adelhelm & Associates have provided a range of expert advice and consultancy services to the RACGP on a number of significant employment issues.

Their highly skilled consultants provided us with a full and detailed analysis of our existing Enterprise Agreement, advice on how to approach negotiations by supporting us to determine the internal and external industrial climate. We were able to establish a strong foundation for our industrial relations platform in a prescriptive and complicated environment.

Adelhelm & Associates have also supported the RACGP with their specialist knowledge in a significant industrial matter. Their consultant handled a workplace investigation on our behalf as an independent and impartial investigator. He managed the matter with professionalism and demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of the relevant legislation whilst understanding the sensitive nature of a number of related issues.

I have enjoyed working with the team at Adelhelm & Associates and would recommend them to support your workplace IR and ER matters."
