Abolishing AWAs

Posted in industrial relations, politics at 3:34 am by thelawthoughts

Kim Beazley has announced that a Labor government will abolish AWAs.

While I am not a fan of the way AWAs are being used by the current government, what is the alternative being proposed by Beazley?

If he has one, he should tell us about it. If he doesn't have one, he leaves himself open to accusations of being just as ideological as the current government.

Beazley won't replace AWAs with another form of statutory individual contract. So, how does he proposed employment agreements be regulated?
