Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment Bill 2014 [No. 2]; Second Reading
I know, Senator O'Sullivan. It begs the question: if there are not workplace relations specialists in the trade union movement, where are they? I guess we just have to look opposite. We have got ex-workplace relations and union officials in the Senate Labor Party.
I want to thank those in the trade union movement that are doing the right thing by their membership, that are spending their money wisely and appropriately and that are showing appropriate leadership and restoring confidence. I call those who are not to actually leave the sector so we can restore confidence. All those senators in this place that are interested in ensuring honest government for the Australian worker, please support this bill.
