Senator DODSON (Western Australia) (13:38): The opposition opposes schedule 6 in the following terms:

(1) Schedule 6, item 1, page 31 (lines 1 to 5), Schedule 6, TO BE OPPOSED.

Labor moves this amendment to the bill because of the matters I have spoken of: that is, that this is raising a substantial fine for any strikes deemed to be a boycott. It doesn't really allow for consideration of those situations where trade union movements support very good causes outside of what is strictly considered an industrial competition situation. So we're opposed to that schedule, and, unless there are some amendments to it, we'll be opposing the bill.
