Stop Abbotts anti-worker laws!

Abbott government legislation currently before the Senate represents an attack of workplace rights and workers’ living standards, unions say.

The proposed changes to the Fair Work Act would:

Re-open the door to the unfair individual contracts of the Howard era.

  • Allow employers to avoid industrial disputes by simply refusing to bargain.
  • Allows employers to write their own “greenfields” agreements.
  • Restricts unions’ rights to enter the workplace to speak to members.

The Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) is calling on all union members, their friends and families to help defeat these moves by lobbying the eight cross-bench senators about the issue.

If three of them vote against the government’s proposals, the changes will be defeated.
