"Collective bargaining will allow owner drivers to share transaction costs and will improve their input into contractual arrangements" ACCC Deputy Chair Dr Michael Schaper said
Ms Bishop told the UN: "Yesterday I spoke to a husband and wife from Perth who had been on a family holiday in Europe. They had decided to stay on for only a couple of days, while their three children -- aged 12, 10 and 8 -- had to return to school in Australia, so they went on ahead with their grandfather on flight MH17. The parents are inconsolable in their grief."
"The profiles direct people to a blog, where they are then bombarded with dubious advertisements" the ACCC said in a statement late Monday
