Title

  • Bills — Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Bill 2013 [No. 2], Building and Construction Industry (Consequential and Transitional Provisions) Bill 2013 [No. 2]; Third Reading
  • Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Bill 2013 [No. 2] and another - Third Reading - Pass the bills

Description

  • <p class="speaker">Rob Mitchell</p>
  • <p>The question now is that the bill be read a third time.</p>
  • The majority agreed to pass the bills, meaning that the bills will now go to the Senate for the senators to consider. In parliamentary jargon, they [read the bills for a third time](http://www.peo.gov.au/learning/fact-sheets/making-a-law.html).
  • ### What were these bills about?
  • The bills re-institute a workplace relations framework that was first put in place back in 2005. Among other things, they re-establish the [Australian Building and Construction Commissioner](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_of_the_Australian_Building_and_Construction_Commissioner) and re-introduce provisions dealing with unlawful [industrial action](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_action) and coercion that are specific to the building industry.
