Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment Bill 2014 [No. 2]; Second Reading
Always, Mr Acting Deputy President. Through you, Mr Acting Deputy President: I have worked with a variety of unions, because I am concerned about job opportunities in regional Australia.
You have some really great unions that are out there actually working with the local employer to find some sustainable outcomes, where it is a win-win situation, where the business gets to stay open. These employers are not bottomless pits; they are actually employing people. So the best outcomes are when the union works with the employer to actually ensure that the productivity gains on the shop floor are achieved.
