2010 Award Modernisation

As of January 1, 2010, the Federal Government’s Award Modernisation came into effect. The key objective of award modernisation is to reduce the number of awards in the system, by creating awards with national coverage across industry and occupational lines.  For the golf industry, this has seen greenkeepers covered under three awards, the most relevant being the Registered and Licensed Clubs Award. The Gardening Services Award and the Amusement, Events and Recreation Award also cover some sectors of our industry.
