MOTIONS – Workplace Relations – Thursday, 10 December 2020

Mr ALBANESE (GrayndlerLeader of the Opposition) (09:31): I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Leader of the Opposition from moving the following motion immediately:

That the House:

(1) notes the industrial relations legislation introduced by the Government yesterday cuts the take-home pay of workers; and

(2) therefore, pursuant to standing order 37(c), calls on the Minister for Industrial Relations to immediately discharge the order of the day, Fair Work Amendment (Supporting Australia’s Jobs and Economic Recovery) Bill 2020, from the Notice Paper.

This government’s Christmas present for Australian workers is to cut their take-home pay.

The SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition will resume his seat. Minister?
