The state conference of the Australian Labor Party’s New South Wales branch will be presented with a number of union-backed motions concerning changes to workplace laws. The motions cover issues such as the right to strike, pattern bargaining, wage theft, ballots on protected industrial action, workers’ compensation and unions’ right of entry to workplaces. Unions and party branches are expected to test support for the reforms at the state conference ahead of Labor’s national conference.
