Anti-union Bill returns
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.
