Second Reading

Debate resumed on the motion:

That this bill be now read a second time.

to which the following amendment was moved:

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

“the House declines to give the bill a second reading because of:

(1) the need to provide sufficient protections in Individual Flexibility Arrangements and the impact that losing protections will have on employees;

(2) the Greenfield agreement making process being heavily skewed in favour of employers;

(3) the provisions of the Bill undermine the right for Australian employees to be represented at work including a requirement that an employee tell their employer if they want to speak with a union; and

(4) the need for a full examination of all amendments within this Bill that may unfairly impact on employees.”
