the crust of the matter

28 April, 2009

Senator LUDWIG (Queensland – Minister for Human Services) (12.08 pm) — If the employees of the parts manufacturer were to take industrial action which could stop or disrupt the supply of parts to the assembly production line then you could have a third party going to Fair Work Australia, and clearly it would fall under clause 426 quite easily under the current provisions. I have no doubt about that. But if you then go to a third party at the periphery—I think they use the supply of pies to an individual pie van as an example, though I am not a fan of pies; maybe I should not say that on the record!—and say that—

Senator Abetz —That’s very un-Australian!

Senator LUDWIG —Maybe we will not use a pie van then!
