Thousands of workers marched through Melbourne and Sydney this week as the ACTU tried to show an increase in support for its campaign to change the federal workplace laws.
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi is warning that the unrepresentative union movement will make life for ordinary Australians even harder if Labor wins government at the next federal election.
The Australian reports the rally brought the middle of the Melbourne central business district to a standstill.
ACTU secretary Sally McManus said the rallies, that were also staged in a number of regional centres were “aimed directly” at the Morrison government in an effort to get it to change direction on penalty rates and the minimum wage.
Addressing the crowd at Federation Square, she declared: “I have a message for Kelly O’Dwyer, for Scott Morrison, for all the other muppets, we will not be intimidated.”
Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News, this show of union militancy is a real worry.
