Jackson wants unions freed from fair work australia


More than two decades after Labor’s state industrial relations laws were established, unions and employers are still struggling.

Labor is campaigning for state industrial relations laws to be brought back into national parliaments as a compromise to create a fairer bargaining environment.

But for the second time Labor’s industrial relations bill is dead-ended at the last-ditch stage in the Senate.

Labor MP Andrew Leigh of the Palmer United party (PUP) will now stage a “clean up” vote on the Bill in the upper house, ending debate on the contentious bill.

“I’m not suggesting it will make us free from the problems of trade unionism any more but we should be seeking to do that,” Ms Leigh said.

He says Labor cannot now return to arguing for the abolition of laws for union members.

“This is more of a political and political battle, it is not a practical one,” he said.

The PUP backed legislation to reduce the number of hours a union member can work.

It h아로마 마사지as gone through부천안마 various stages but would have forced employers to pay overtime and the employee to work on a “reasonable” basis, for which most employers agree, it would also have meant all workers w카지노ould have the same union status.

Labor says it is on the front foot to fix the system while the opposition says a clean up will not result in a safer working environment.

On a different front, the federal Liberal senator Bob Day will also stage another bill to be introduced within the same year to reform the industrial relations laws in the states and territories.

Labor will introduce the legislation into parliament during the next week.
