Ai Group comment on passage of Registered Organisations Bill

"Ai Group welcomes the passage of the Registered Organisations Bill through Parliament. The findings of the Heydon Royal Commission into misconduct by some unions and some union officials demonstrated that the existing registered organisation laws needed to change," Australian Industry Group Chief Executive, Innes Willox, said today.

"Now that the Registered Organisations Bill has been passed, Parliament’s focus rightly shifts to the ABCC Bill. It is critical that the ABCC Bill is passed without delay in order to deliver the vital reforms to the building and construction industry and the broader community that are necessary. Without its passage the unlawful and inappropriate conduct being constantly and widely displayed by construction unions will continue unabated"
