REVIEW OF INDUSTRIAL DISPUTES STATISTICS
The ABS has commenced a review of the Industrial Disputes statistics presented in this publication. Since the last comprehensive review of these statistics in 1999 there have been a number of changes to industrial relations legislation and, more generally, the structure of the labour market and nature of working arrangements have also changed considerably. The ABS is seeking input from users to ensure that the statistics are conceptually robust and continue to meet critical data requirements.
An important element of the review will be to understand the contemporary and potential future data requirements of users. Consultation with key users is planned to occur in June and July 2013. Once the review is complete, information about any changes to the Industrial Disputes statistics will be communicated to users, primarily through notes in this publication.
If you would like to contribute to this review or require further information about the review, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Aaron Greenup on (02) 6252 6436 or Kirsty Leslie on (02) 6252 5436.
