Aggravating factors and further union discussion

Concern over union officials have been raised again over their perceived aggravated and unlawful entry onto land. Mr Hansen notes that they should be reasonably protected under the Fair Work Act.

The committee now questions why the statutory review into the current (2016) Act could occur as early as next month while amendments are occurring now. Mr McKnight says it is a requirement of his Department to do so, however he does not respond on if it is appropriate for these amendments to occur beforehand.
