Business lobby group

ABOUT 14 small business organisations have banded together to bring a louder voice to the table when the WA Government starts working out its industrial laws.

Called Small Business Alliance and chaired by Workplace Agreements director Cheryl Thompson, the lobby group has given itself the mission of protecting the viability of WA small businesses.

Ms Thompson said one of its aims was to create equitable employment legislation.

The group is made up of various regional chambers, business associations and professional organisations.

It hopes to be able to provide a cohesive response when the Government calls for industry comment on legislation affecting small business, such as the Minimum Conditions of Employment Act.

The Government is expected to give a draft of its legislation, aimed at removing the Workplace Agreements Act and some of the other industrial legislation the previous WA Government put in place, later this month.
