What is a genuine industrial dispute? Attorney General for the State of Queensland and the State of Victoria \u26 Anor v Riordan \u26 Ors; Ex Parte the Australian Liquor Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers Union \u26 Ors

By Amanda Coulthard


Extract: There is a long standing doctrine that the service and rejection of a log of claims can generate an industrial dispute within the meaning of s 4(1) of the Industrial Relations Act 1988 (Cth). It is the scope of the qualification to this doctrine, namely that the demands in a log of claims be \u27genuine\u27, that is at the heart of this appeal. The appeal arises out of a finding made by Senior Deputy President Riordan of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission (\u27the Commission\u27) that the service of a log of claims by the Australian Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers Union (\u27ALHMWU\u27) and the Ambulance Employees Association of Victoria (\u27AEAV\u27) on various employers in the States of Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia and the Northern Territory gave rise to an industrial dispute
