Senator SHERRY (Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Senate)(5.47 p.m.) —We are dealing with opposition amendment No. 1 on sheet 187. I will move that amendment.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN —At this juncture it would be better to deal with your original amendment No. 118 which opposes subsection (5) of item 19. As we proceed down the running sheet, we can deal with the other matter. The question is divided in respect of division 2 of part VIB, item 19 of schedule 9. The question is that division 2, as amended, be agreed to.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Amendment (by Senator Sherry) proposed:

(1)   Schedule 9, item 19, page 73 (line 30), at the end of section 170LB, add:

   or

   (c) a distinct category of employees, provided the category is:

      (i)   agreed by the employer and the organisation representing those employees; and

      (ii)   approved by the Commission (with the consent of any other organisation involved in an existing single bargaining unit with the same employer).

   Question put:

   That the amendment (Senator Sherry's ) be agreed to.
