Senator REID —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate: (a) notes the emergence of the New Left within the union movement, demonstrated by the recent actions of the Building Workers Industrial Union in their campaign for a $52 a week pay increase; and (b) calls upon the Government to ensure that the viability of employers within the building industry is not further eroded through unreasonable industrial action in this difficult economic climate.
