Implementation of equal pay in other instruments
7. Implementation of equal pay in other instruments---The provisions
of section 6 of this Act shall, with the necessary modifications, apply
with respect to every instrument that is not an award as if it were an
award under the [Industrial Relations Act 1973], and as if---
(a) In any case where the rates of remuneration payable under the
instrument are to be fixed by an appropriate authority, the
references in subsection (7) of that section to the parties to
the instrument were references to that authority; and
(b) In the case of an instrument having no expiry date, its term
expired on the first anniversary of the date of its commencement
that occurs on or after the 1st day of April 1973.
