Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    In order to identify the minutes of a particular Board researchers should scan the consignment details for each consignment in this series as all three consignments have overlapping date ranges.

  • Function / Content
    This series consists of Minute Books of the various bodies responsible for arbitration and determination of awards for various trade and industry groups. The bodies responsible have generally been constituted as Wages Boards and, since 1981 as Conciliation and Arbitration Boards.

    The volumes contain the proceedings of each meeting of each Board. Precedents may also appear in the transcripts. A separate Minute Book exists for each different Board. Earlier volumes contain hand written reports of the proceedings, however as the number of Boards increased the Clerks began using type written transcripts and subsequently binding them into volumes.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The volumes are arranged alphabetically by the name of the Board.

    The minutes of each meeting of each Board are arranged chronologically within the volumes pertaining to the particular Board. Minutes for some Boards may cover several volumes, while others may have sat infrequently and their minutes are less voluminous. Each Minute Book has the name of the Board and the date range covered on the spine of the volume. Since c.1984 the case number handled by the board is also recorded in the Minutes.

    Control Records

    A register which records each case number and the name of the Board to which it was referred and the date on which the Board sat has been retained by the Industrial Relations Commission.
