Unions have rejected the Productivity Commission’s plan to attack workers’ rights and conditions and have made many submissions and organised rallies outside Productivity Commission hearings to make sure they got the message.
The Productivity Commission’s final report will be released by the end of November. You can help by signing here and saying you won't stand by while your hard-fought for rights and conditions like penalty rates, the right to negotiate collectively, and the right to unfair dismissal protection with due process are attacked.
One of the first acts of the Abbott/Turnbull LNP Government was to establish a Productivity Commission inquiry into workplace relations with terms of reference designed to ensure the Commission made recommendations that attacked your rights and conditions at work.
The Commission has now released its draft report to the LNP Government, and as expected, has made a suite of recommendations to cut wages, increase the power of employers and make it harder for working families to make ends meet.
