The federal government is expected to release proposed amendments to the Ensuring Integrity Bill on 22 November. It is believed to have backed Centre Alliance’s proposal for a demerit points system for unions and officials who breach workplace laws, as well as amendments put forward by One Nation. However, One Nation has withdrawn proposed amendments that would have allowed unions to be deregistered over unprotected industrial action that could have a ‘substantial adverse effect’ on the economy.
