Joint Consultative Committee
When the University of Adelaide Enterprise Agreement 2010 – 2013 (Enterprise Agreement) came into operation on 1 March 2011, it became a requirement that all policies and procedures that were being created, or varied by the University, that deal with conditions of employment, would need to go to a Joint Consultative Committee for feedback. The Joint Consultative Committee has now been established under the Enterprise Agreement.

How do I provide the JCC with relevant policy/procedure information?
