The term Workplace Relations is relatively recent to Australia (believe it or not). For most of our history as a nation the relationships forged between employers, employees and trade unions were collectively known as Industrial Relations. The conservative Federal government of the late 1990s/early 2000s was having none of that! In aid of a program to reduce the influence of trade unions in the economy the government decided on a name change. The term Workplace Relations was coined in order to further that goal. History will decide whether the goal was achieved.
