Fair Work Act

Debate resumed on the motion by Mr Champion:

That this House notes that:

(1) the industrial system under the Fair Work Act 2009 is working well with low unemployment and low levels of industrial disputation;

(2) under the Fair Work Act 2009, 10,800 agreements have been made covering almost 1.5 million employees;

(3) since the introduction of the Fair Work Act 2009, the number of days lost to industrial action has continued its historical downwards trend; and

(4) the Fair Work Act 2009 is meeting its objective to balance the needs of employees and employers without taking away basic rights and guaranteed minimum standards.
