COSBOA “does not support the unionisation of small business”

The chair of the Council of Small Business Organisations Australia (COSBOA) has taken the unprecedented step of formally releasing a statement of intent, in the wake of internal and external criticism of the small business group’s pre-Jobs Summit deal with the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU).

The criticism was mainly directed at the lack of consultation with the membership, which is comprised of an array of small business organisations, before this month’s Jobs Summit.

COSBOA chair Matthew Addison supported chief executive Alexi Boyd, who bore the brunt of the criticism.

The statement of intent comes ahead of next month’s COSBOA annual meeting and was welcomed by members.
