Cleaning Services Award 2010: MA - Modern Award: MA000022
This industry award covers employers throughout Australia in the contract cleaning services industry and their employees in the classifications listed in Schedule A—Classifications to the exclusion of any other modern award.

The contract cleaning services industry means the business of providing cleaning services under a contract and includes:

- cleaning (including event cleaning, trolley collection and hygiene and pollution control but excluding trolley collection covered by the General Retail Industry Award)

- minor property maintenance which is incidental or peripheral to cleaning.

Event cleaning means the provision of cleaning, in connection with the staging of sporting, cultural, scientific, technological, agricultural or entertainment events and exhibitions.

The award does not cover an employee excluded from award coverage by the Fair Work Act.

The award does not cover employees who are covered by a modern enterprise award, or an enterprise instrument (within the meaning of the Fair Work (Transitional Provisions and Consequential Amendments) Act 2009 (Cth)), or employers in relation to those employees.

The award does not cover employees who are covered by a State reference public sector modern award, or a State reference public sector transitional award (within the meaning of the Fair Work (Transitional Provisions and Consequential Amendments) Act 2009 (Cth)), or employers in relation to those employees.

This award covers any employer which supplies labour on an on - hire basis in the industry set out in clause 4.1 in respect of on - hire employees in classifications covered by this award, and those on - hire employees, while engaged in the performance of work for a business in that industry. This subclause operates subject to the exclusions from coverage in this award.

This award covers employers which provide group training services for trainees engaged in the industry and/or parts of industry set out at clause 4.1 and those trainees engaged by a group training service hosted by a company to perform work at a location where the activities described herein are being performed. This subclause operates subject to the exclusions from coverage in this award.

To avoid doubt this award does not apply to an employer merely because that employer, as an incidental part of a business that is covered by another award has employees who perform functions referred to in points above, or in the classification descriptions referred to in Schedule C of the Award.

Where an employer is covered by more than one award, an employee of that employer is covered by the classification which is most appropriate to the work performed by the employee and to the environment in which the employee normally performs the work.

Modern awards

Modern awards are legal documents that set minimum employment entitlements for specific industries or occupations. They apply on top of the National Employment Standards.

Who do modern awards cover?

There are 122 modern awards that cover most jobs and employees in Australia. Each modern award applies to everyone who works in the industry or occupation it covers. The exception is some managers and employees who earn more than $123 300 a year.

Modern awards don’t apply to employers who are bound by an agreement.

See How to find an award for helping finding the award that applies to you.

When did modern awards start?

Modern awards replaced federal and state awards (pre-modern awards) on 1 January 2010. They have changed minimum terms and conditions for many employees. The changes vary by state, industry and employer. Most modern awards have ‘transitional arrangements’ which phase in changes to pay rates over 4 years (ending in July 2014). Find out more about how this is happening on the Phasing in modern award pay rates page.
