UWU-ADIA AGREEMENT 2023-2026

The UWU AND ADIA MARKET AND SOCIAL RESEARCH INDUSTRY AGREEMENT 2023-2026

An agreement has been reached between the UWU and ADIA.  A copy of the unratified agreement is available here:

As a condition of membership, ADIA requires all member companies to comply with the new Industry Agreement (i.e. not just the companies listed in the schedule). 

The new pay rates will be payable on 1 July 2023. From 1 September 2022 onwards, all other terms and conditions in the Agreement should be complied with.

Re-vote for the proposed Industry Agreement 2023-2026

The United Workers Union (UWU) and Australian Data and Insights Association (ADIA), the peak employer body for the market and social research industry, reached an agreement in mid-2022 on the terms of a new multi-employer enterprise agreement to replace the expired NUW and AMSRO Market and Social Research Industry Agreement 2017-2020. This new Industry Agreement was endorsed by an online ballot of employees held last July and was submitted to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) for approval.

ADIA companies passed on to employees the pay rises in the new Agreement in July 2022 and July 2023, despite the new Industry Agreement still awaiting approval by the FWC.

After attending a conference with the FWC to discuss a range of technical matters the Commission had raised (about the procedure adopted by some ADIA members in the making of the proposed 2022 Industry Agreement and low voting numbers), the UWU and ADIA agreed to update the proposed Industry Agreement to reflect recent changes to the Fair Work Act, to rerun the ballot process and resubmit the revised Agreement to the FWC once that occurs.

The Agreement has now been re-submitted to the FWC for approval.
