Resolution on updating the Socialist Alliance workers’ rights charter.

In the light of developments in the working class and trade union movements since the defeat of the Howard government, in particular the tabling by industrial relations minister Julia Gillard of the Fair Work Bill and the dropping of charges against CFMEU official Noel Washington, Conference asks the incoming National Executive and the National Trade Union Committee to produce a new edition of the workers´ rights charter, and to give consideration to having it printed in pamphlet format instead of as a broadsheet.
