To the members of the Australian Parliament,
AN OPEN LETTER ABOUT THE ABCC
We write to you regarding the Australian Building and Construction Commission.
As working Australian’s in the construction, manufacturing and building industries we have deep concerns about the ongoing existence of the ABCC.
Treats us differently just because we work in the construction industry
Unfairly targets, intimidates and harasses us with separate laws that don’t apply to any other industry
Subjects us to coercive powers including secret interrogations
Has spent millions of taxpayers’ dollars without finding any significant evidence of wrongdoing
As working Australians with families, we want good jobs for Australian workers, a great education system, world class health care and fair laws for all working people. The ABCC is an unnecessary, money wasting, unfair body that the majority of Australians do not support.
We implore you vote against the continued existence of the ABCC in the Parliament.
