      STOP THE BABBLE AND START ACTING BRACKS
      Shadow Minister for Industrial Relations - Andrew McIntosh

      The Bracks Government must act now to halt the current power dispute that
      is crippling small business in Victoria and putting public safety at risk.

      All Steve Bracks can do is blame everyone else. Either Steve Bracks is a
      fool or he is getting bad advice.

      The Premier and the Minister for Industrial Relations, Rob Hulls have the
      power to end this union lunacy TODAY!

      Why won't the Premier act? Why won't the Premier stand up for small
      business?

      He used the powers available to him under the Workplace Relations Act to
      intervene in the disastrous Saizeriya dispute, in the nurses' dispute and
      he can use those same powers today.

      Yet he will not intervene to protect innocent third parties from these lazy
      and oppressive unions.

      If Steve Bracks was fair-dinkum, his Government would intervene in
      proceedings in the Industrial Relations Commission and he would insist that
      his obstructionist Federal Labor Party colleagues support the Workplace
      Relations 'Better Bargaining' Bill which would give innocent third parties
      the right to sue these indolent Trade Unions for damages.

      The Premier and his henchmen in Industrial Relations Victoria need to stop
      protecting their lazy mates in the trade union movement and stand up for
      small business in Victoria.

      A Liberal State Government would have acted to prevent this dispute from
      impacting so unjustly on innocent third parties.
