Unequal Power: Who will be the big losers
in IR changes?

The Howard Government’s proposed reforms will transform industrial relations in Australia by setting up a system that assumes that workers can bargain with employers. What happens to those workers and potential workers with limited power? While skill shortages will give some workers increased bargaining power, what happens to others? Good employers don’t need legislative control but who controls the bad ones and many ordinary ones? Join the panel of speakers above to discuss these questions and look at groups who may have problems. Who is most likely to be affected adversely; what will happen to pay equity; how work/life balance will be affected and what about those moving off welfare?
