Coverage

During the Fair Work Commission's 4 yearly review of modern awards, the Commission decided that the manufacturing section of the Vehicle Manufacturing, Repair, Services and Retail Award (the Vehicle Award) should be moved into the Manufacturing and Associated Industries and Occupations Award (the Manufacturing Award) to reduce the complexity in the Vehicle Award. When the new awards come into operation on 4th May 2020, the Vehicle Award will become the Vehicle Repair, Services, and Retail Award 2020. The Manufacturing Award will then cover employees previously covered by sections two, three and four of the Vehicle Award.
