pattern bargaining

Pattern bargaining involves a bargaining representative negotiating multiple proposed enterprise agreements, aiming to include similar terms across all these agreements.

In pattern bargaining, a representative, often a union or employee group, is involved in negotiating more than one enterprise agreement. They attempt to standardise certain terms and conditions across these agreements, ensuring consistency and fairness. This approach can streamline negotiations and help maintain uniform standards across different workplaces or sectors. However, it's important that each agreement still addresses the unique needs of the respective workforce.
