Union Training Plan Sparks Liberal Attack

A proposal purposed to give union delegates paid annual leave to attend training seminars could cost Australian businesses a whopping $1.3 billion if extended to all members, according to Finance Minister, Mathias Cormann.

While the proposal is set to be put forward at the ALP national conference this week, Labor is insisting that the government is initiating a scare campaign in order for delegates to receive training ahead of the plan.

While they may call it a scare campaign, we call it common sense. The weight of such a plan would impact Australian businesses on a massive scale.

Labor party gives unions more control

But it comes as no surprise, with Labor governments being so beholden to unions, and undercutting Australian businesses to continue to stay in their favour. Since Shorten became leader of the Labor party, unions have donated over $31 million to the party — allowing these law-breaking groups greater control over his agenda.

It’s a $1.3 billion hit on business that will put jobs at risk…Bill Shorten will always prioritise the interests of his union buddies ahead of the public interest,’ Senator Cormann told Sky News on Friday morning.

By giving the unions what they want, they will have even more control over Australian businesses and the economy. They will have the power to inspect their books, and to grasp their wealth and operations. Unions shouldn’t be singled out for special treatment, especially when they’re the most corrupt thugs of them all.

  1. I don’t understand how this will cost Aust. businesses the $1.3 billion if this happens?! How. The delegates and/ or members will only be using annual leave which would be paid to them in any case. I think the whole story is not reflected here somehow. Some details are missing.
    Not all unions are “criminal” or “corrupt” thugs and when Corporate incomes have become so massively out of reality and employees keep getting shafted by having no wage growth or pay increases for over a decade then it’s a damn good thing there’s still a union movement.
    Union memberships are starting to rise because people are sick to death of the greed at the top.
    Despite annual leave being a rare condition in todays workforce, those of us who still enjoy such a thing can spned our time doing what hell we want to while on annual leave so what’s the big drama here? Be good if someone would explain.
