The new State Government Construction Code, to apply from 1 July, is all about attacking unions. It forces companies to prove they are following Liberal Party anti-union policies like: Rewriting EBAs to promote labour hire and 'all-in' sham contracting; restricting entry of union officials to sites; removing union logos from work-issue clothing; increased limits on union reps, and much more. Failure to comply on all sites will see builders thrown off the government tender list. The Libs will spend $7 million enforcing the code, including a hefty salary for ex-ABCC commissioner Nigel Hadgkiss. For more information, click here.
