On 29 April 2019, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) received a collective bargaining notification from Lionbend Pty Ltd on behalf of itself and thirteen current, and any future, quarry cartage businesses to collectively bargain with Boral Resources Ltd Melbourne to give ongoing effect to existing quarry cartage agreements, and to negotiate any new agreements. The quarry cartage businesses deliver Boral quarry materials in the Melbourne metropolitan region. The notifiers have requested that the notification continue for 10 years.
On 3 July 2019 the ACCC decided not to object to the notification. The ACCC decided to allow the immunity provided by the notification to remain in force for ten years from the date it was lodged. Accordingly, the notification came into force on 13 May 2019 and will remain in force until 28 April 2029, unless it is withdrawn or revoked. Further information about the ACCC’s decision is available in the Statement of Reasons below.
