What Is A Greenfields Agreement


[3] The Woolworths Ltd group of companies established a subsidiary (HP Distribution) to arrange the distribution of goods for three of its major business units from a distribution centre in a way never before. Prior to hiring employees to work at the site, HP Distribution entered into a corporate agreement with SDA. The Commission approved the agreement at first instance as a `greenfields agreement`. If the work beyond the preparatory work for the creation of the real new enterprise begins before the application for an agreement to create a new agreement is submitted to the Fair Work Commission, the Commission cannot be satisfied that the employer has created or proposes to create a real new enterprise. .
