No. If the Workplace Determination comes into effect, the AFPA can at any time during the life of the Workplace Determination seek a majority support determination from the Fair Work Commission on the grounds that a majority of our members want to bargain for a new enterprise agreement. If approved by the Fair Work Commission, a majority support determination would require the AFP to commence the process for bargaining for a new enterprise agreement.

In the event of a successful majority support determination application, the AFP would end the workplace determination to allow for bargaining to proceed. The underlying EA would continue to operate until a new arrangement is agreed and any further pay rises would only be following the conclusion of bargaining and the commencement of a new enterprise agreement.
