Labor tries to take bus operators’ assets
Premier Andrews and his government are trying to force Melbourne bus operators to agree to hand over their buses and other assets to the government.
This is part of a worrying attempt by the state Labor government to give unions more power and more members, by shutting down small and family owned businesses and replacing them with large companies or government run services, which will allow the unions to have more control.
School cleaners, truck drivers who own their own vehicles, and labour hire firms are also being threatened by the government.
Giving more power to unions, government organisations and large companies will mean more expensive and less reliable services for customers and the public.
