Northern Land Council Enterprise Agreement

The development of innovative land and sea management programs, employment, training and other programs that improve Aboriginal self-determination and cultural survival is to approve the agreement if it meets the specific requirements of the Fair Work Act 1994. The NLC remains the main body through which top-end Aboriginals make their voices heard on issues that affect their country, their seas and your communities. The Land Rights Act remains the strongest foundation for building social, cultural and economic growth for traditional homeowners. Regulations 6A and 6B of the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Regulations (CACR) prescribed, as of January 1, 2009, the basic requirements for the composition of the Commonwealth audit committees. The Ministry of Finance and the 2008/2003 deregulation letter provide operational details. A jury charter was developed and qualified and representative individuals were appointed to an audit committee. The audit committee developed its charter and reviewed the 2009/2010 accounts. ClC employees work under the CLC Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) and the CLC/NLC Award. The current EBA expired in February 2007, but remains active until its replacement. Negotiations for a new certified agreement have begun. As part of the modernization of the Fair Work Australia award, the CLC has become the answering machine for a modern distinction, and the next certified agreement will address transition issues. To view the official copy of an enterprise agreement, please contact SAET Registry.

Registered contracts apply until they are terminated or replaced. The CLC manages and develops financial accounting and reporting systems using the company-wide integrated business application and associated products. If a job has a registered contract, the premium does not apply. However, the Native Title Act is also a Commonwealth Act, passed by Parliament in 1993. It recognizes that, in some cases, Torres Strait Aborigines and Islanders have a right to land, water and the sea, including wholly owned, but do not offer property such as the Land Rights Act. The Native Title Act allows governments to negotiate local companies and title holders, agreements, including indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUAs), on future developments of land, water and sea. It does not provide for a veto on developments such as the Land Rights Act. If you are a party to a signed enterprise agreement, you must apply for SAET authorization within 21 days for SAET to approve it.
