BLF 2 ABCC Nil but $200,000 Wasted!

The ABCC has abandoned its second-ever prosecution of the BLF. The ABCC’s hopeless case against BLF organiser Eddie Bland and delegate Greg Thomas was set for a 3 day trial in court in June. The cases were dismissed by the Court at the request of the ABCC within the first few hours of the trial on the first day after the BLF’s barrister questioned the ABCC’s main witness, Peter Wiggins, boss of Tri-Nat Enterprises t/a MPD Constructions. Wiggins answers were confused.

Protest AWA's

Protest Unfair AWA's

 

One of the competitors on the high-profile TV reality game My Restaurant Rules tried to force its workers onto AWA individual employment contracts on the weekend.

 

The TV show caught the bosses dudding the wages and conditions of the workforce.

And it is causing a media storm.

It is rare that such popular culture programs discuss our issues at such a crucial time.

Workers Compensation

Increasingly, on seeking employment workers have been asked to provide a workers’ compensation claims history to their potential employer.  Workers’ compensation claim histories are basic listings of injury type and date of claim. Non-compensable injuries from sporting or motor vehicle accidents are not identified.
