Questions on Notice: Industrial Relations
MS WOOLDRIDGE — To ask the Special Minister of State (for the Minister for Industrial Relations): How many meetings has the Minister or her office had with the Australian Workers Union and what were the dates of those meetings.
The Victorian Government believes that stakeholder consultation plays an important role in the development of good public policy and accordingly we meet with a broad range of stakeholders. This government believes that constructive and collaborative relationships with unions and other stakeholders, compared to an adversarial approach, are more productive and do more to encourage investment and enhance the reputation of the State. We value our relationships and we are proud of our consultative approach. We will continue to engage with relevant stakeholders and seek their perspectives regularly.
