ACTU Media Release Senate Right To Vote Down ABCC (FED)

Sentate right to vote down ABCC

The ACTU welcomes the Senate again rejecting the Government’s push to reinstate the ABCC. 

Quotes attributable to ACTU Secretary Dave Oliver:

“The Senate yet again voting down the ABCC lays bare Malcolm Turnbull’s multi-million dollar political charade.”

“Instead of listening to poll after poll telling him that Australians don’t care about the ABCC, the Prime Minster has chosen to blindly push ahead with this partisan attack on workers.”

“Australians care about cuts to health, lack of investment in schools and $100,000 university degrees - and these are the issues that parliament should be urgently dealing with.”
