'Union busting' bill will 'save the taxpayer a lot of money'

  'Union busting' bill will 'save the taxpayer a lot of money' Liberal Senator Eric Abetz says the government’s proposed Ensuring Integrity Bill, if passed, will “get rid of the rip offs, the rorts and the rackets that are costing the taxpayer a lot of money”. The Coalition is confident its 'union busting' bill - set to make it easier to de-register law-breaking unions and officials - will pass through upper house with the support of the Centre Alliance and One Nation. Senator Abetz said the bill would “put downward pressure on housing and on civil construction works”. “Everyone will be a winner and law and order will be restored,” he said.

Pauline Lee Hanson (née Seccombe, formerly Zagorski; born 27 May 1954) is an Australian politician who is the founder and leader of One Nation, a right-wing populist political party.

Pauline Hanson's decision to vote against the coalition's union-busting bill has left Scott Morrison's government reeling after its humiliating defeat.

The One Nation leader's move last week has left her relationship with the federal government on the rocks.

However, she has defended her decision, saying she 'won't sell my soul like the other p****s in this place'.

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.

The prime minister, Scott Morrison , has dodged the question of whether Pauline Hanson is racist, saying the right thing to do Morrison said he did not believe people should apply a broad brush to the One Nation leader and pick on one issue, as she had something to contribute on other issues, such

Senator Hanson put her shock last-minute decision to vote with Labor and the Greens down to a lack of action on white collar crime.

She also placed militant unions on notice, warning more law-breaking could prompt her to change her mind and back the bill later.

The prime minister accused Senator Hanson of reneging on a promise to back legislation, the Daily Telegraph reported.

But Senator Hanson has also rejected the claims she gave a written guarantee and sent text messages to ministers assuring them of her support.

'I never did that and I've followed up that with a request for the recipients of those so-called texts to prove their allegations by releasing them publicly,' Senator Hanson wrote in an opinion piece.
