Abstract/Citation: This Act contains numerous miscellaneous amendments to the Agricultural Labour Act (BGBl. 1984/287), particularly regarding procedural aspects of the conciliation process involving collective agreements. It also provides for continuing the powers of an outgoing works council before the newly elected works council takes over; and it governs their election and term of office. Under new s. 194(7)(3), the works council has responsibility for watching over the implementation of rules on workers' protection, social security and training. The amendment also specifies areas in which employers must keep the works council informed (collection of computerised personal data on workers, employer's financial status, etc.) Also amends s. 237 on penalties.
