Chris Gulaptis votes against IR fairness

It has long been known in the Clarence electorate that its new NSW Nationals MP ‘Steve’ Gulaptis was an ardent supporter of Work Choices.

In fact, when he was a Clarence Valley Shire councillor he wanted to introduce some of its worst features into local government conditions of employment. As a member of the O’Farrell Government he maintains his desire to make life difficult for ordinary workers.

On 2 April 2012 he voted for the Retail Trading Amendment Bill 2012 which in practice will allow a wider numbers of employers in New South Wales to pressure full-time, part-time and/or casual staff to work on a restricted trading day, Boxing Day, and in certain circumstances possibly have to work on Christmas Day when the business is not open to customers.
