Client:  NSW Dept of Commerce

The NSW WIRS was conducted during March and April 2006. It consisted of a 20 minute telephone interview with managers in NSW workplaces. Workplaces in agriculture, forestry and fishing and those in public administration were excluded. All workplace sizes were covered. The survey aimed to collect data on a range of issues including:

  • the workforce and workplace profile;
  • methods of setting pay and conditions in the workplace;
  • wages and entitlements of the workforce;
  • information on union membership and industrial relations within the workplace;
  • workforce additions and reductions;
  • profits, labour costs and productivity;
  • various policies in place; and
  • various attitudes held by managers.
