The clampdown begins

Wednesday, 30 May 2007 

Other than Greg Combet’s fairly mute criticism of the contract terms of Therese Rein’s business made yesterday (only after press goading), the unions have allowed the Rein affair to be one about modern marriages rather than rights or wrongs of individual contracts, lousy award settlements or even making money out of privatised job placements. This not only gives Rudd leverage to bury the anti-Workchoices campaign but start to distance himself publicly from the unions. Today’s expulsion of Mighell from the ALP for some fairly anodyne comments is the first step.
