    Cant see it happening. Might be harder to get good terms next time an EBA is negotiated though

    I doubt they could cut penalty pay/shift allowance.....

    Even newman's liberal government wasn't be that stupid.

    With any luck Abbott will be kicked out of his leadership position sometime soon.

    I'm only on casual employment ( better rates and control of when I work). Up here they are soooo short staffed. Nurse jobs will never get cut.

    I'm pretty sure nurse EBA are state govt. Federal will have nothing to do with it.

    I had been out for a few years mat leave, but my co workers told me how SA state govt was trying to decrease penalties including night shift. Our state govt is Labor. Our union isn't the strongest, but nurses are such a massive % of the workforce, that trying to shaft nurses isn't a smart move!

    I am interested in knowing where this info came from, was it part of the scare campaign or have you seen a written proposal by the LNP ( as I haven't)
