Lambie visits ETU’s CUB picket line and calls for holes in Fair Work Act to be fixed

JLN Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has visited the workers manning a picket line in front of the Carlton United Brewery in Melbourne and challenged the Federal government to fix the holes in Australia’s Fair Work Act.

“There is something very wrong with Australia’s Fair Work Act – when 3 casuals can sign an agreement – which takes away wages and conditions from 55 hard working - full time employees at CUB. Australia’s Fair Work act has become an Un – Fair Work act – and must be fixed. I will strongly support scrutiny of this injustice by a Senate Inquiry." said Senator Lambie.

“Instead of Michaelia Cash going after the ABCC code – I suggest she pull her head out of her rear end and start concentrating on the loop holes that are in the Fair work act – and then she might actually get a vote from me. That’s what I want to see.” said Senator Lambie.
