Enterprise agreements data

The Department of Employment and Workplace Relations and the Fair Work Commission compile and publish reports on federal enterprise agreements in Australia.

Workplace Agreements Database

Australian enterprise agreement data is collected in the Workplace Agreements Database.

The Workplace Agreements Database was established after formal enterprise bargaining in federal workplace relations began in 1991. It contains information about every federal collective agreement made since.

Enterprise agreements and bargaining reports

Trends in Federal Enterprise Bargaining

Trends in Federal Enterprise Bargaining (Trends) is a quarterly report. It contains data on the:

  • number of enterprise agreements made in the federal workplace relations system
  • how many employees are covered by enterprise agreements
  • the level of wage increases included in enterprise agreements.

To interpret data correctly it is important to read the technical notes.

Report on Agreement Making

The Report on Agreement Making fulfilled the requirements of the Workplace Relations Act 1996 (WR Act) to provide data on developments in enterprise bargaining over a three year period.

Email ebtrends@ag.gov.au to request a copy of the report.

Since the Fair Work Act was established in 2009, the Fair Work Commission is required to review the developments in making enterprise agreements, replacing the RAM report. The Fair Work Commission has released the General Manager's report into enterprise agreement-making in Australia. Visit the Fair Work Commission Reports page for further information.
