ALP factional heavies will bring back WorkChoices: Bandt
Recent threats by ALP factional heavies to preference the Coalition ahead of the Greens will help Tony Abbott and hasten the return of WorkChoices, said Greens Deputy Leader and employment spokesperson, Adam Bandt.
"This is a gift to Tony Abbott" said Mr Bandt. "With ALP heavies wanting to elect pro-WorkChoices Coalition MPs ahead of anti-WorkChoices Greens, Tony Abbott gets closer to control of both houses of Parliament and an attack on people's rights at work."
"Most Labor voters would be shocked to think that their vote could help elect pro-WorkChoices Liberals ahead of progressive Greens MPs who will protect people's rights at work."
"Every time ALP factional heavies say their party's future lies in becoming more like Tony Abbott, another Australian decides to vote Green."
