Enterprise Bargaining

Benefit from over 20 years of Enterprise Bargaining experience

With decades of collective experience, our team of specialist consultants is familiar with the Australian Industrial Relations System with an unparalleled reputation for supporting our clients with their enterprise bargaining agreements.  We have performed work for organisations in many different industries and for employers of varying sizes. Recently, we have had an influx of security and construction companies.

Through our service, we provide advice and assistance in the drafting, preparation and gaining approval of your EBAs. We are flexible in our approach and can modify our offerings around your specific needs. We then lead you through the process and do all the paperwork for you, so we can meet agreed timelines for lodgement of your agreement.

Drafting and Bargaining Process


We interview you at the outset so we know what your goals are. We then provide different perspectives on how you might achieve those.


We can assist (if required) in the negotiations with unions or employers to come to the most suitable agreement for all involved.


We draft an agreement, including Better Off Overall Test calculations and methodologies used in calculating the agreement rates.


We then lead you through the process and do all the paperwork for you, so we can meet agreed timelines for lodgement of your agreement.

How can ER Strategies help?

At ER Strategies, we have a number of highly experienced consultants with decades of combined experience in negotiating, bargaining, drafting and submitting enterprise agreements. We have worked with a number of high profile clients and bargained with many strong unions too. Our typical services focuses around the drafting and submission of enterprise bargaining agreements, however we are more than capable of extending beyond that to meeting your needs. Take a look at our full range of services below.

If you only require an agreement to be drafted and submitted we have two service options. The first option includes the drafting and submission of an agreement, including:

– Drafting of the agreement, plus all required notices

– Explanatory notes

– Statutory declarations required upon lodgement

– Lodgement of the agreement

–  Up to two hours of incidental dealings with the Fair Work Commission in having the agreement approved under the Better Off Overall Test

The second option is solely for the drafting of the agreement with no other added features or inclusions.
