Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced a review of the state’s industrial relations laws, saying every worker should be safe from sexual harassment and bullying.

The Premier made the announcement after marching in Barcaldine’s Labour Day celebrations with her father Henry and a raft of senior ministers. 

She said every worker in the state should be able to go to work and be safe, including from sexual harassment and bullying.

“Every woman worker in this state should be treated the same as her male counterpart,” she said.

“... Today we’re announcing that we’re going to do a review of the Industrial Relations Act to make sure the laws are strengthened against sexual harassment of women in the workplace.”

She said women were paid 15 per cent less than men, had less super, and were more often victims of domestic violence and sexual harassment than men.

The Palaszczuk Government will hold a community Cabinet meeting in Longreach on Tuesday.
