Paying for Professionalism: Industrial Relations in Australian Rugby Union
Rugby union in Australia, since the advent of professionalism in 1995, has found itself adopting a collectivist model of industrial relations. That is, wages and employment conditions have been determined by collective bargaining between the various Australian sport unions (the employers) and the Rugby Union Players' Association. Two collective bargaining agreements have been negotiated in Australian rugby union. This review examines the rise of player associations in professional team sports, both in Australia and overseas, the peculiar circumstances which combined to produce Australian rugby union's collectivist model, and the contents of the two collective bargaining agreements.
