QLD Industrial Relations Bill

Corruption in State Parliament


The Queensland State Government recently introduced a Bill to the Parliament (Industrial Relations and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2022) which attempts to restrict the rights of workers to be represented in the QIRC.
This has recently been covered in the Courier Mail, which you may read here.
In response to the Bill, Red Union on behalf of its associations made a submission calling out the Bill as a blatant attempt to coerce workers back into the Government-backed Unions.

You may read our submission here.

On Thursday 21 July, the EET Committee met for a Public Hearing where Red Union Support Hub Managing Director, Jack McGuire spoke to the submissions.

Watch the full speech and questions below.
