(a) the duration of the apprenticeship shall be laid down in the training agreement or in the training contract for each apprentice. The period thus defined, to which the apprenticeship rates apply, may not exceed five years. 9. Nothing in this Statement diminishes or affects in any way the acquired rights to any form of leave, including sick leave, annual leave, long-term service or parental leave to which workers or any of them were entitled by provision or by any other means before the beginning of clause 10 below.10. This declaration is an arbitral award of the Commission, will enter into force on 1 January 2005 and will remain in force in accordance with the law for a period of three months and thereafter. [See note 3 below.] Note 11. Disability Pension, the Commonwealth Pension Scheme for the Income Security of Persons with Disabilities, in accordance with the Social Security Act 1991 (Cth), as amended from time to time, or for any successor to that scheme.2. The intention of this provision is limited to preventing the price of sheltered workshops (i.e. assisted employment services) from applying – it does not prevent the price from applying to disabled workers in open employment.3. Leave is reserved for each party in order to reconsider this issue in the light of possible developments in the national process, which currently considers labour relations issues for sheltered workshops.
This national process includes the Disability Sector National Industry Consultative Council and all related claims to cover premiums for sheltered repairers. Note 21. The purpose of the above exception is to maintain the status quo with regard to employers who, on the date of entry into force of the declaration on the common rule, contribute to a compliant pension fund. These employers are not required to change their existing regulations. Nor will it be necessary for existing agreements to be agreed between the employer and the workers. For the avoidance of doubt, the exception remains applicable to employers who contribute to pension funds that are replacement funds (as defined in Regulation 1.03 of the Superannuation Industry Regulations 1994 (Supervision) Regulations (Cth) or amended or replaced by other laws) into which benefits are transferred after the date of entry into force of the declaration on the common rule. in accordance with the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (Cth) and the rules set out therein. In addition, “existing agreements” include the contribution to these funds.2. The exception applies to current and future workers of employers who are entitled to the exemption.3. The exception does not apply to new businesses created after the date on which the arbitral award is generally declared effective.4. The derogation applies only to employers who are required to apply the conditions of award under the declaration of the common rule.
It does not apply to employers designated as opponents of information or bound by affiliation to an employers` organisation.5. The exception applies subject to any other Commonwealth legislation.
