The Changing Face of Unions

If unions are to regain their relevance, they need to understand the changing nature of their potential membership.  

They need to find a way to become relevant to the white collar skilled workforce.  Find ways to embrace AI and other technologies that are likely to take jobs.  Work with employers to ensure everybody wins.  Find ways to work with Government to ensure all occupations including retired, school, unpaid work, under-employed, casual workers.  This will mean working with all parties for the common good and coming up with new ideas that fit the way our society is moving without accepting the top-down greed currently driving the economy.

The first way we will find that out is by having a federal ICAC-but we don't have one of those. The second way we can find that out, given that Labor and the Liberals seem intent on stopping an inquiry into it, is by the parliament setting up its own...

    25 August 2019
    Julian Leeser:.... The experience of my state demonstrates that we need to approach this issue cautiously. The Independent Commission Against Corruption in New South Wales has, by any measure, a mixed history. Under ICAC's watch Eddie Obeid and Ian Macdonald were able to misuse their positions, as members of parliament and ministers of the Crown, to carry out numerous corrupt actions, and ultimately they...
