The Turnbull government’s attacks on unions and workers have suffered a setback, after crossbenchers joined with the Australian Labor Party to oppose the anti-worker, anti-democratic “Ensuring Integrity” bill in the House of Representatives.
The campaign now moves to the Senate, and Australian unions, including the QTU, are mobilising to protect the rights of members to decide who leads their unions, and how those unions are run.
The bill would give the government of the day and members of the business community the power to decide who can stand for election as union leaders, which unions can merge, and even the power to disband unions entirely. Across the board, this bill imposes harsher penalties and more regulation on unions than corporations are subject to.

QTU stands in solidarity
The Queensland Teachers’ Union wishes to express its shock at the killing of 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and stands in solidarity with the many brave teachers who risked their own lives to protect the students in their care.
These horrific events reveal the deep commitment and bravery of members of our profession under the most extreme of circumstances, and we are proud to stand with them at this terrible time.QTU, 16 Feb 2018
