Clubs Australia

Summary

On 4 June 2019 Clubs Australia applied for authorisation to collectively bargain with suppliers of goods and services from industries including wagering services, gaming machines, food and beverage, and professional services on behalf of its members, being registered clubs across Australia.

The ACCC previously granted Clubs Australia authorisation to collectively bargain with suppliers on similar terms for a period of 5 years from 6 March 2014.  As the previous authorisation has now expired, Clubs Australia has requested interim authorisation to enable it to collectively bargain with the same target suppliers and on the same terms as previously authorised under A91381 while the ACCC is considering the new application (which includes a more extensive supplier list and broader conduct).

A copy of the application and submission are available by following the links below.

The ACCC is currently inviting submissions from interested parties. Submissions commenting upon the request for interim authorisation should be made by 26 June 2019 and submissions commenting upon the substantive arrangements should be made by 10 July 2019.

Submissions can be made at adjudication@accc.gov.au.
