A critical review of the major opposing views on arbitration & industri
This paper will critically review the study opposing perspectives on arbitration and industrial dealing, with particular attention to how government regulation and discourse relate to the changes made to the system after 1996. The major focus of this skeleton paper will be to demonstrate that Howards industrial relations policies resemble those of the late 1800s, where the Master and Servant Acts adjust the relationships between employer and employee. These were replaced with the introduction of the Commonwealth Court of Conciliation and Arbitration (1904-1921). The issuance from such dramatic change in industrial relations was the forming of unions and major strikes. Subsequently, the pertly system of employer and employee relations sought to resolve labour disputes and promote the quality of life for Australian workers.

Australian workers were illustrating this through strikes and the formation of unions. In recognising the duty of government to be the protection and economic welfare of its citizens, a court of Conciliation and Arbitration was established in Australia in the 1890s. The new systems were based in social democratic ideals and worked to give ever... ...ts to replace the idea of "industrial relations" with that of "employee relations" reflect efforts to draw attention apart from institutions like tribunals and unions, towards individuals and their direct relationships.BibliographyBolton, G., (1990) The Oxford History of Australia, vol.5, 1942-1988 The Middle Way, Oxford University Press, Melbourne.Isaac, J., (1998) Australian Labour mart Issues An Historical Perspective, ledger of Industrial Relations, vol. 40, no. 4, pp. 690-15MacIntyre, P.G., (1985) A Fair employ in Winners and Losers Th e Pursuit of Social Justice in Australian History, Allen and Unwin SydneyMcCallum, R., (1996) The overbold Millennium and The Higgins Heritage Industrial Relations in the 21st Century, Journal of Industrial Relations, vol. 38, no. 2, pp.294-312.Parkin, A., Summers, J., & Woodward, D., (1980) Government, Politics and Power in Australia an introductory Reader, Melbourne, Victoria.
