I move:

That this bill be now read a third time.

The government can no longer support the Fair Work Amendment (Repeal of 4 Yearly Reviews and Other Measures) Bill 2017, given it contains these entirely unrelated amendments relating to penalty rates. This is nothing more and nothing less than a stunt by the Labor Party. Labor doesn't care about penalty rates. If it did, it would immediately demand that all unions who have done deals with big businesses to cut penalty rates repay those workers. This is nothing more and nothing less than a stunt by Labor and the Greens, and the government will not support it and we will not be supporting the amended bill.
