Stop this dangerous bill
An omnibus industrial relations (IR) Bill proposed by the Morrison government will allow employers to cut wages and conditions.
The Bill, to be introduced in parliament today, will allow the Fair Work Commission (FWC) to approve agreements that do not meet the better off overall test (BOOT) for a period of two years.
Additional protections against unfair agreements would also be weakened by the Bill.
Currently the FWC must ensure workers have access to an agreement for seven days and it must be properly explained to workers before voting.
Under the Bill these requirements will be removed.
Pledge to stand with workers
The omnibus IR Bill will allow employers to cut wages and conditions. Shockingly, it will even let agreements go BELOW the minimum award safety-net.
It takes rights off casuals, allowing employers to call workers casuals and take away leave rights. They say casual workers will be able to become permanent after 12 months but give workers no way of enforcing this right – a right is worth nothing if you can’t enforce it.
Take the pledge to stand with workers
“I pledge to stand with workers against the Morrison Government’s dangerous and seriously unbalanced industrial relations bill.”
