“It’s hard to believe the Liberal Government is still trying to celebrate the passing of its tattered protest bill through the Upper House.

The Legislative Council has effectively torn the Government’s awful legislation to shreds.

There were amendments on amendments as Upper House members tried to salvage something from the wreck.

For the Government to now claim a win is laughable.

Labor backs proper protections for Tasmanian workers, that’s why we strengthened laws in Government.

But our strong support of workers does not mean we are obliged to pass bad legislation.

Labor will have to consider the amended bill closely and consult before determining our position in the Lower House.”
