19608Re: [GreenLeft_discussion] Re: What Bob Gould fails to mention
- Jul 5, 2005What Bob also doesnt understand is that Federal Legislation (Workplace
Relations Act) already overides State Government industrial legislation.
If he bothered to read the NSW Industrial Relations Act he would realise
there is little difference for workers between the Federal and State
Acts. Jeff Shaws rewriting of the NSW Act was to bring it into line and
compliance with the Federal Act. It was not an act of benevolence on
behalf of Shaw or Della Bosca.
The rewriting of OH&S, Workcover and Workers Compenstaion Acts is a
similar line of bastardry that is a kick in the face for workers and is
a backhander to Insurance Companies and the business end of town. They
privatised it - remember? Dont ram this shit that flows from your poison
pen down our working class throats Bob, we really do know better.
The NSW government has gone futher than any other to keep workers on
their knees. Just ask anyone in Macquarie Fields, they will set you
straight. For thats where injured and sick workers end up.
