Summary

NSW MidCoast & SA Barossa Mid North Co-operative Dairymen Limited Collective Bargaining Groups propose to collectively negotiate the terms and conditions of raw milk supply agreements to be entered into between each of the participants of the bargaining groups and the target, Woolworths (Supply Agreement), and an agreement which deals with the obligations of the parties to work cooperatively to meet Woolworth's requirements (Target Agreement). It is proposed that a representative of both groups will negotiate the terms and conditions of the supply agreements with Woolworths and/or its agent, Milk2Market.

It is proposed that the terms of the Supply Agreements be largely identical, with those common terms (Common Terms) to be negotiated collectively by the members of both collective bargaining groups. Some terms, such as those specifying the quantities of milk to be supplied by individual participants, will differ depending on the size of their respective dairy herds and their capacity for raw milk production. It is expected that there may also be some differences in the prices which apply to Supply Agreements between the target and each bargaining group.

The notification was allowed to stand on 27 February 2015.
