The ACCC will allow the Australian Newsagents' Federation Ltd (ANF) to collectively bargain with SA Lotteries on behalf of 112 of its South Australian members.
The notification will enable the ANF to represent the 112 listed newsagents in collective bargaining with SA Lotteries for three years. Participation in the arrangement is voluntary for both the newsagents and SA Lotteries.
The ACCC has allowed similar collective bargaining arrangements by lottery agents in the past, most recently by granting authorisation to the Newsagents Association of NSW and ACT to collectively bargain on behalf of its members with NSW Lotteries (see above). Similar arrangements have also been authorised in Victoria and Queensland.
