Inspections and Visits

Inspections may be initiated by the Tribunal or the parties when it is considered that a practical review of work performed by ADF members will be critical to the Tribunal’s understanding of a particular matter. Inspections are most beneficial in assisting the Tribunal to reach decisions because they allow Tribunal members to witness firsthand, albeit in a limited way, the working and living conditions of ADF members across a range of employment categories and localities. The ADF and Commonwealth parties, as well as the Secretariat Advisor, normally accompany the Tribunal on inspections..

Visit - RAAF Base Wagga – School of Technical Training 24 June 2016

The Tribunal visited the School of Technical Training (STT) at RAAF Base Wagga as part of their induction to ADF training facilities.

The Tribunal were briefed on the roles and responsibilities of the STT by the Commanding Officer and gained an understanding of both the training conducted at the STT and the military training requirements in a tri-Service environment.

The Tribunal met with instructional staff from the Air Force and contractors as well as with trainees undertaking specialised training as aircraft technicians, avionics technicians, aircraft life support fitters and aircraft structural fitters. These discussions allowed the Tribunal to appreciate the elements and the intensity of training as well as the skills gained on graduation.

Above: The Tribunal President, Ingrid Asbury, and Member, Mr Adrian Morris, review workshop training facilities and assignments set for trainees. They are accompanied by STT instructional staff as well as employees from Army and Air Force Industrial Relations and Remuneration Directorates.
