Australian Building and Construction Commission Re-emergence

Yesterday, the Coalition’s industrial relations bill was passed through the senate which saw the return of the old Australian Building and Construction Commission.

Tim Ayres, NSW secretary of the Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union, joined Adrian Walton in the studio to explain more about the ABCC’s return.
