Video Conference with The Hon Christian Porter MP, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations
The Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations Christian Porter wants to get agreement on more flexibility in Australia’s rigid industrial relations system to boost jobs.
The Minister told the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry members that “it’s no surprise there would be different points of view within the various working groups on industrial relations reform.
More broadly, he said the five roundtables had been “quite remarkable” in their discipline & rigour, despite there being “imperfect agreement” about solutions to commonly identified problems.
“As these things go, it was a very, I think, healthy, useful exercise,” the Minister said.
“But obviously, at the end of the day, the government legislates & the government makes policy.
“We’ve got to try and look at all of the different angles … & try and build them into a product that can A) grow jobs and B) make its way through Parliament.
“Ultimately, the only thing that matters is growing jobs.”
