Why Mr Abbott?

A poll of voters in the seat of Sturt conducted this week shows Christopher Pyne would lose his seat in a landslide if a candidate from popular South Australian Senator Nick Xenophon's team ran against him.
And the poll shows a dramatic drop in support for the Liberal Party in Sturt - irrespective of whether a Xenophon candidate contested.
The poll, conducted by the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union to gauge worker attitudes to the China Free Trade Agreement, finds that voters in Christopher Pyne's seat are overwhelmingly opposed to the Agreement. It finds:
In a significant win for workers, a full bench of the Federal Court has unanimously dismissed an appeal by Centennial Northern Mining Services in regard to payment of accrued annual leave on termination.
Employers must pay annual leave on termination at the same level of payment that the employee would have received had they taken the annual leave whilst employed - regardless of the terms of any enterprise agreement.
CFMEU National President Tony Maher today seconded a resolution at Labor’s National Conference to develop an Electricity Modernisation Strategy to manage change in the electricity sector, which is being driven by both global and domestic forces.
Mr Maher said the electricity sector had been changing for decades with declining growth in electricity generation driven mainly by lower manufacturing output, increased energy efficiency and rooftop solar PV, but industry restructure planning has never been done well.
