WHS Consultation

Employers are likely to make policy and operational changes that affect AMWU members’ interests in response to COVID-19.

Employers have obligations under WHS legislation and the Fair Work Act 2009 (the “FW Act”) to consult with employees about these types of changes.


Apprentices like yourself are the future of our industry. Your employment, training and safety remain a priority so we’ve put together some advice to ensure you know and can exercise your rights at work.

This advice should be read alongside other advice provided by the union about general pay and conditions matters, and health and safety, as well as advice available from governments, training providers, and your employer.

If you have any questions or need support, get in touch with Helpdesk.
