Abbott to reveal workplace policy within weeks

Some within the Coalition would like to make substantial amendments to the Fair Work Act, including a greater focus on individual agreements and changes to unfair dismissal laws.

"We are not going to go to polling day with the voters in doubt as to exactly what will happen under a Coalition government," he said.
