Senator COTTON (New South WalesMinister for Civil Aviation) - Proposed section 12d(2.) sets out the types of orders which might be made. These are described as orders relating to conditions of employment, which would cover matters such as stand-down clauses and noworknopay clauses and alterations to the wages or conditions of employment of those concerned. Such orders would primarily affect officers and employees rather than organisations. The paragraph has been expressed in wide terms to cover all officers and employees involved in the particular situation, irrespective of whether they are members of an organisation. If the paragraph were not included an order to stand down the members of the organisation involved would not be effective against nonmembers of the organisation who are unable to be employed because of the stoppage. Orders directing the cessation of the conduct would generally be directed against the organisation but would also enable the insertion of a bans clause in the determination. Senator Bishop said that orders under proposed section 1 2d (2.) can be issued against a union in respect of a dispute outside the Public Service. The orders can be so directed, but only in respect of matters involving the Public Service. The bans order cannot be made against a union except in respect of conduct by it in the Public Service area.
