Debate resumed from 21 March, on motion by Mr Abbott:

That this bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr McClelland moved by way of amendment:

That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“whilst not denying to give the bill a second reading, the House condemns the Government for:

(1) further reducing workplace democracy by removing the right of employees to vote on whether a certified agreement should not apply following a transmission of business; and

(2) further increasing job insecurity by enabling the termination of certified agreements, without employee consent, in corporate restructuring and contracting out”.
