The former Select Council on Workplace Relations

The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Select Council on Workplace Relations was established to progress significant reforms on a range of national workplace relations and work health and safety issues.

On 13 December 2013 COAG agreed that its council system would be streamlined and that the COAG Select Council on Workplace Relations would not continue.

At the final meeting on 11 April 2014, Commonwealth, state and territory ministers with responsibility for workplace relations and work health and safety agreed to manage responsibilities and workload through Senior Officials Meetings'. Ministers would then oversee important matters out-of-session with the option of a face to face meeting once a year.
