Pauline Hanson and Jacqui Lambie have joined forces to deliver a shock defeat of the Government's signature union crackdown legislation.

The Government failed to gain support of crossbenchers to pass its so-called ensuring integrity bill, which Labor had dubbed "union busting" legislation.

The changes would have allowed for applications to be made to the Federal Court to deregister a union or union official if conduct was deemed inappropriate.

The Government said it was crucial to ensure unions were accountable for their actions, while Labor criticised it as an attack on the union movement.

One Nation, Jacqui Lambie, Labor and the Greens voted against the bill. Senior Government ministers appeared shocked when the final vote was cast.

More to come.
