Last week was a huge one for workers across the country as Labor passed its new Industrial Relations laws, The Secure Jobs Better pay bill.
Australian Unions have spent a decade campaigning for a fairer deal when it comes to our workplace laws, and the Albanese government has started the work of repairing our broken system with this legislation.
The Secretary of the ACTU, Sally McManus is my guest this week discussing the implications of these new laws.
Also, we’re joined by Jamie Newlyn, Assistant Secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia, to discuss the attempt by a big international shipping company to shut down Australia’s port and lock out its workforce.
