Abstract/Citation: These amendments to the Agricultural Workers Act 1977 (LS 1977 - NZ 1) repeal its Parts II (classes of agricultural workers), III (agricultural tribunal) and IV (settlement of disputes), along with its First Schedule. Henceforth, those matters are to be dealt with under the Industrial Relations Act 1987 (No. 77). This amendment Act also repeals s. 9 of the Agricultural Workers Act, ss. 2, 3 and 5 of, and the Schedule to, the Agricultural Workers Amendment Act 1977, and the Agricultural Workers Amendments Acts of 1979, 1980, 1982, 1984 and 1985. It also revokes the Industrial Relations Amendment Act Commencement Order 1978 (S.R. 1978/99) and the Agricultural Workers (Workers' Organisation Membership) Regulation 1985 (S.R. 1985/155). Finally, the amendments revise s. 2 (definition of "worker" and "employer") and ss. 6(l)(f), 59 and 60 (minor changes) of the Agricultural Workers Act.
