WorkChoices and Fair Work Australia

Being a little ignorant of IR policy differences between the ALP and the Liberals, I thought I'd dot-point the similarities and differences they had/have.

  • Can only strike during a bargaining period;
  • Industry-wide (pattern) bargaining is banned;
  • Secret ballot required before industrial action;
  • A single, national industrial relations system;
There are more differences - even less significant - however, all the differences are minor compared with the similarities.
