Considerable changes in the workforce and in industrial relations legislation have resulted in gaps in the system of representation and industrial relations regulation in Australia. With a falling trade union density the issue of employee voice outside of trade unions is addressed in this paper. The literature on industrial relations “actors” is reviewed and the discussion turns to contemporary developments in the Australian industrial relations system and the emergence of “new” actors.
