“Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to show some leadership and completely rule out giving the unions free rein in our schools,” Liberal National Party Leader Deb Frecklington said.
“Despite her apparent and stunning backdown on allowing unions to recruit children in schools, former Queensland Council of Union’s secretary turned Labor Education Minister Grace Grace still hasn’t said how this will be enforced or ruled out union influence in our schools completely.
“Ms Grace must think Queenslanders came down in the last shower if she thinks they’ll believe that unions won’t try and recruit kids if they are allowed access in our schools.
“Allowing unions to run programs in Queensland schools shows yet again the Palaszczuk Labor Government is owned lock, stock and barrel by the union movement.
“The conduct of unions is notorious for bullying and has no place in our schools.
“Our schools are about education, not indoctrination.
“Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to hit this rot on the head today.”
