There is growing unrest within factions of the Australian Labor Party, ahead of several likely by-elections in early 2018. The powerful NSW Right faction has expressed concern about the party’s treatment of former Labor Senator Sam Dastyari, as well as the involvement of Opposition Leader Bill Shorten in negotiations with the Industrial Left faction in Victoria. A member of Labor’s Victorian Right faction says the deal for unions aligned with the Industrial Left to support the Centre Unity faction would not have proceeded without Shorten’s backing.
