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.

We also need a federal ICAC with teeth that can properly investigate allegations of impropriety and corruption by Australian elected officials. Our universities deserve funding to be able to function effectively on their...

This minister is a walking advertisement for the need for a federal ICAC. Our country pays the price for his maladministration of his portfolio.
