Govt fair pay group split on making agreement compulsory

From Morning Report, 7:40 am on 31 January 2019

The government will have to decide whether its new Fair Pay Agreement system should be compulsory or not. Fair Pay Agreements would set minimum standards to lift wages and conditions across an industry or occupation. The working group looking into the issue and led by former prime minister Jim Bolger, has left that decision up to the government. Workplace Relations Minister Iain Lees-Galloway speaks to Susie Ferguson.
