Welcome to the Australian Hotels Association
The Australian Hotels Association (AHA) is the national voice of Australia’s vibrant hotel industry. As an organisation of employers in the hotel and liquor industry federally registered under the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009, the AHA represents more than 5,000 members across Australia serviced by a network of branches based in every state and territory, plus a Canberra-based National Office.
The AHA represents the interests of the hotel industry to government at a local, state/territory and federal levels. Some of the issues affecting Australian hotels being addressed by the AHA include:
- Workplace relations
- Gambling policy
- Preventative health and alcohol policy
- Taxation (including alcohol excise)
- Workforce development
- Business regulation
The majority of the AHA’s members are pubs and taverns, while a significant number are accommodation hotels. The AHA’s accommodation hotel members are serviced by Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA) – a division of members within the AHA representing the specific interests of the accommodation sector. The President of Tourism Accommodation Australia sits on the National Executive of the AHA.
APPLICATION FOR CONSENT TO RULE CHANGES
Members are advised that on 27 November 2013, the AHA lodged an application with the General Manager of Fair Work Commission pursuant to Section 158A of the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009 (Cth) for her consent to the alteration of Rule 5 of the Rules of the AHA to add a new Sub Rule (3) that will extend the membership eligibility of the AHA to certain types of accommodation providers in New South Wales. The reason for the application is to ensure that the eligibility coverage of the AHA and that of its counterpart State Registered Organisation in NSW are the same.
