The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining & Energy Union’s Victorian secretary John Setka has urged Labor to make changes to the Fair Work Act if it wins the next federal election. Amongst other things, he has called for rules governing protected industrial action and unions’ right to enter workplaces to be relaxed. Setka has also criticised former Labor prime ministers Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard over their policies on industrial relations. Meanwhile, Michele O’Neil is tipped to succeed Ged Kearney as president of the ACTU. O’Neil is the national secretary of the textiles union, which is part of the CFMMEU.
