WA TAB Agents' Association Inc- Application for Authorisation A90952


On 1 February 2005, the WA TAB Agents' Association (the Association) lodged application for authorisation A90952 with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC).
The Association sought authorisation on behalf of its members, for an agreement between its members, for it to collectively bargain with Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA) in relation to the terms and conditions of the provision of services by members to RWWA.
The Association also sought authorisation for an agreement between its members under which it would act on behalf of members where a dispute arises between those members and RWWA.

On 30 June 2005 the ACCC granted authorisation to application A90952 until 30 June 2011.
In granting authorisation, the ACCC considered that the anti-competitive detriment generated by the proposed arrangements was likely to be negligible.
The ACCC also considered that the proposed arrangements were likely to result in some benefits to the public, including providing a greater opportunity for TAB agents, through the Association, to achieve more efficient commercial outcomes by having greater input into contracts.
