"The applied research project problem was that the Metropolitan Fire Brigade's (MFB), Melbourne, Australia, current Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) does not provide for effective change and flexible allocation of resources to meet the future demands of the organisation. The purpose of this applied research paper was to identify a legislated negotiation framework for the organisation to meet future demand. Using descriptive research methodology, the following research questions were posed: (a) What is the current legislative negotiation framework? (b) What are the future demands of the MFB? (c) What options exist to ensure the MFB is able to meet future demand? (d) What are the current inhibitors to change implementation, resource allocation and flexibility? and (e) What are the issues to establishing an EBA for future demand?"
