Media Release
Bob Brown 20 Aug 2010

Andrew Robb (the Coalition's campaign spokesperson for 2010) has effectively endorsed the Greens in the Senate as good insurance against WorkChoices.

AAP reports today "The Australian Greens would have the balance of power in the Senate to stymie any attempt to change the [industrial relations] laws, Mr Robb said."

"Mr Robb appears to be endorsing the Greens in the Senate as a hedge against the Coalition re-introducing WorkChoices.

"If people are worried about WorkChoices or Mr Abbott's plan to cut 12,000 jobs from the public service, they should vote for the Greens' Lin Hatfield Dodds," Senator Brown said.
