Anti-union Bill re­turns

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

THE Fed­eral Govern­ment’s union-bust­ing

Bill will be rein­tro­duced to par­lia­ment to­day, less than a week af­ter Pauline Han­son blind­sided the Coali­tion in vot­ing it down.

If passed, the “en­sur­ing in­tegrity” leg­is­la­tion would make it eas­ier for the Govern­ment to dereg­is­ter unions and union of­fi­cials for con­duct deemed in­ap­pro­pri­ate.

At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Christian Porter said the Govern­ment was will­ing to work with the cross­bench to get the Bill passed.

On Mon­day, Prime Min­is­ter Scott Mor­ri­son ac­cused Sen­a­tor Han­son, pic­tured, of reneg­ing on a prom­ise to back the leg­is­la­tion.

“It was dis­ap­point­ing that, hav­ing been given those as­sur­ances, that that was gone back on ul­ti­mately when the vote was taken,” he said.

Sen­a­tor Han­son re­jected the claim.
