Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of an amendment to the usual second reading motion, which is "that the bill be read a second time" - parliamentary jargon for agreeing with the main idea of the bill.

Amendment text

At the end of the motion, add ", but the Senate calls on the Government to amend the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009 to ensure that anyone convicted of more than 10 criminal offences cannot be appointed as an officer of a registered organisation".

Votes Passed by a small majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
