Sources involved in the working groups, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the talks are confidential, said the proposal had received a favourable reception from Industrial Relations Minister Christian Porter, who is leading the process.

Mid-sized and large employers will not benefit from the award changes, meaning they will have to negotiate with unions on enterprise agreements if they want similar simplified rules.

A proposal to make it easier to approve those agreements has won joint backing from the Australian Council of Trade Unions and the Business Council of Australia, which represents the country’s largest companies including Coles and McDonalds.

Under criticism from business leaders, Mayor Bill de Blasio encouraged private employers Tuesday to begin bringing their workforces back to Manhattan offices.

De Blasio said the city is working on a plan to require its own hundreds of thousands of employees to return to work in person, though it will be phased in gradually to make sure the coronavirus stays under control.
