‘Retrograde and damaging’: BHP boss Geraldine Slattery scolds rushed same job, same pay policy move

0 198


BHP Australia President Geraldine Slattery has lambasted the expedited passing of the Federal Government’s contentious same job, same pay policy, labelling the move as “rushed” and “extremely disappointing”.

Her comments come after Industrial Relations Minister Tony Burke struck a deal with crossbench senators Jacqui Lambie, David Pocock, Lidia Thorpe and the Greens to split his mammoth legislation and pass some of its 23 measures into law on Thursday.

Mr Burke has claimed the proposed Closing the Loophole Bill — introduced in September — or same job, same pay industrial relations changes, will put an end to a “longstanding loophole” that allows companies to pay workers engaged through labour hire companies less than those covered under enterprise bargaining agreements.

The decision has drawn the ire of the Big Australian, an already staunchly vocal critic of the proposed changes.
