Figures for March show that corporate profits are growing at the expense workers' wages. The Howard government plans to even tougher anti-union laws if it gets re-elected. And the Labor Party will keep the majority of Work Choices if it gets elected, including draconian penalties for workers who strike outside the bargaining period, a ban on pattern bargaining and special policing of building workers.

This panel will discuss options for union campaign against Work Choices, whether the anti-Work Choices campaign should be independent of the ALP, the potential for a right to strike campaign in Australia and the implications of both major parties support for a building industry police force continuing after the federal election.
