Industrial Relations

The Australian Greens believe that:

  • working people have the right to be involved in decisions about their work
  • free, independent and democratic unions are an essential pillar of a civil society
  • all people have the right to pursue their well-being in conditions of freedom and dignity, economic security and equal opportunity
  • we can create a sustainable future - where fair workplaces and strong communities protect our environment and ensure a healthy economy

We have matched our words with action – standing up for the rights of workers and unions inside and outside the parliament.

A strong Greens presence in the Senate is the only way of ensuring progressive employment and workplace laws for all Australians.
