Senator CANT (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Has the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and National Service noticed a Press statement that pastoral employers have served a log of claims on the Australian Workers Union? Does the log of claims seek to vary the rates of pay and conditions of employment of pastoral workers? Do the claims seek to include as workers under the award in the States where it operates all natives except those in certain parts of Western Australia and South Australia? Can the Minister say whether the wage rates and working conditions proposed for native workers are the same as those proposed for non-natives? If not, will the Minister intervene in order to persuade the Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Commission to grant to native workers equal rights under the award?
