zombie agreements

Zombie agreements are registered agreements that were made before 2010. These agreements were set to automatically terminate from December 7, 2023, unless they were extended.

These are registered agreements that continued to operate long after new modern awards and agreements came into effect. They were called 'zombie' because they remained active even though they were outdated. However, as of December 7, 2023, unless actions were taken to renew or replace them, they automatically ceased to be effective. This was to ensure that employment conditions align with current legal and industry standards.
