Anthony Albanese industrial relations laws set to pass after weeks of debate


Australian workers expect big pay rises as Anthony Albanese strikes late night deal to pass controversial industrial relations laws after weeks of debate

Labour’s controversial industrial relations bill is set to pass parliament this week after weeks of debate.

Anthony Albanese’s government has agreed to redefine a small business – which is exempt from the chain of multi-employer negotiations – into a company of 20 people instead of 15.

It will also include provisions allowing companies with fewer than 50 employees to be able to argue that it is unreasonable to be forced into multi-employer bargaining agreements.

It comes after Labor Relations Minister Tony Burke reached an agreement with ACT Senator David Pocock on Saturday night.

“We are confident that the Secure Job, Better Pay Bill will pass this year with the support of Senator David Pocock…it has not been an easy negotiation,” Burke said.

“There are actually three types of issues that have come to the fore. One is for small businesses, one is for low-wage workers, and finally a concern he has that is not in my portfolio but is part of the deal, which is the structural issues that we can set up to deal with people who are [in] The payment system.’

More soon.
