Rudd And Gillard Announce Industrial Relations Policy

Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd and Shadow Industrial Relations Minister Julia Gillard have held a press conference.

Rudd said that the Howard government’s WorkChoices had gone too far and would be replaced with an industrial relations system that embraced four elements.

The first element would be fairness, including the abolition of Australian Workplace Agreements. The second elements would be flexibility, whilst the third would be to provided sensible transition arrangements to the new system. The fourth element would be proper protections for business against unlawful industrial action.
