Senator CAMERON (New South Wales) (20:12): I suppose that is a matter of spin that you are putting on your position. For the public record, let us be clear: the Fair Work review did not recommend the government's model and the Fair Work Commission did have arbitration as one of its central elements, so it is more closely aligned to what Labor will be proposing in our amendments as we go down the track in this debate.

Is it true that if the Fair Work Commission declines to make a greenfields agreement, then the operation of proposed section 255A means that there would be no conciliation available and no good faith bargaining to resolve the agreement in the future?
