This is likely to be the last PIR Conference before the next Federal election. Workplace relations is featuring heavily in the public debate and is bound to be a key issue in the election.
The Hon Craig Laundy MP has recently been appointed as the Minister with direct responsibility for workplace relations. The Federal Government is endeavouring to secure the passage of a number of important pieces of workplace relations legislation through Parliament.
Meanwhile, Labor has announced a number of workplace relations policies that are of concern to businesses. The ACTU is pressing Labor to go much further with its workplace relations policies to swing the balance even more in the unions’ favour. The ACTU is trying to convince the public that Labor’s Fair Work Act is unfair on unions and workers and giving unions more power is just the medicine that the community needs.
In addition, there have been a large number of recent decisions of Courts and the FWC, and other developments that are presenting challenges and opportunities for employers.
All of the big issues will be discussed and debated at the conference.
