Australia Institute’s Centre for Future Work

The ACTU's under-reported National Economic Reconstruction plan is a chance to push hard for 1 million well-paid and sustainable jobs. Sue Bull argues that unions need to unite and campaign for it.

A new report by the Australia Institute’s Centre for Future Work says there is a "close statistical relationship" between a dramatic reduction in industrial activity and stagnation in wages.

Its research shows there has been a 97% decline in industrial action from the 1970s to the present, which has weakened the bargaining power of workers.
