Debate on changing our labour law http://chriswhiteonline.org/2017/02/5943/
Background on the ABCC and since then the Senate unfortunately has passed the Bill, so, repression on unionised building sites is increased.
These new ABCC laws in 2017 affect all construction workers, building workers, electricians, metal workers and is extended to the MUA:
* Jobs will be lost
* Lives will be lost – safety is at risk
* Job security will be gone
* Limits on casual workers are banned
* Apprenticeships under threat
* No limits on overtime
* No proper rest breaks
the real danger is these repressive anti-union laws are extended to all workers.
