Fair Work Amendment Bill 2013; Consideration in Detail
I agree with the last part of what the member for Farrer was saying. Obviously, coming out of mustering camps and having worked as a labourer on many occasions in the mines, I have difficulty here because what one person may construe as bullying may be another way that people just simply talk to each other in situations of very high tension and very high danger. We are not people to equivocate in the bush and in the mines, I can assure you. So the definition worries me greatly and I have had difficulties with no part of the ALP proposal except in this area. I would agree with the first part of the opposition's amendments but certainly not the second.
