Federal Labor says draft legislation to abolish AWAs will be ready when Parliament resumes in February. The Chamber's Chief Executive, Damon Thomas, says red tape has delayed the approval process for AWAs. He says if the law passes, AWAs lodged but not approved at that stage should still proceed. "So if there's applications lodged right up until the time when the legislation is enacted into law, those applications should be able to be processed," Mr Thomas said.
