To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament Assembled: The petition of the undersigned draws attention to the House concerns over the proposal to introduce two (2) Bills before Parliament to amend the Safety Rehabilitation and Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

These proposed amendments will disadvantage many workers and their families making it harder to obtain Workers' Compensation and will restrict the capacity of employees and their unions to ensure the workplace is healthy and safe.

Your petitioners therefore request that the powers of the Safety Rehabilitation & Compensation Act 1988 and the OHS Act be preserved and that the proposed changes to these Acts be rejected.

by Senator Murray (from 635 citizens)
