Today, ANMF (SA Branch) representatives stood up for workers’ rights and conditions by providing evidence into the Senate Inquiry as part of the proposed Industrial Relations Omnibus Bill by the Coalition Government.
If passed, the Bill will allow employers to make agreements that cut the wages and conditions of workers.
The Bill will allow the Fair Work Commission to approve agreements that do not meet the better-off-overall test (BOOT) for a period of two years, the ACTU says.
In addition, the Bill will significantly undermine and weaken the current protections and safeguards workers have to prevent employers imposing unfair agreements; the Bill weakens these tests.
