Productivity Commission Review

Productivity Commission Review - Victorian Chamber Submissions

Australia’s workplace laws relating to modern awards, penalty rates, the agreement making process, business protection from industrial action, unfair dismissals and “general protections” must be changed as a priority.

That is the key message contained in Victorian Chamber’s submission to the Productivity Commission Review of Australia’s Workplace Relations Framework. 


Regional Victoria Means Business

Regional Victoria Means Business

The Victoria Summit 2015 – Regional Victoria was held in Bendigo on the 13-14 August 2015, bringing together regional business leaders and stakeholders from across the State to identify the priorities needed to keep regional Victoria growing.
