Here are some pros and cons of union jobs

There are other factors. There is mobility of wages: quite simply people may take less in order to keep in work when there are staple industries collapsing, for example ship-building and coal mining. Then you have what is called mobility of labour. This is Lord Tebbit's solution: "get on your bike". That is movement across the economic area from a region of no demand to a region of demand. This happened in the United States: the black workers from the cotton fields went to Detroit and the plains worker in the Dust Bowl migration went to California and there was great mobility. Then there is what is called the transfer payments mechanism. This is Government using tax revenues and social revenues to help areas that are not doing very well. The United States has an automatic system for this; an automatic system for compensating states (for example Michigan, recently) from the federal revenues. And finally the last shock absorber is unemployment. If the others do not absorb the shocks then you are into unemployment: this is what happened in the ERM. When we left the ERM without the protection of a true fluctuating exchange rate, without the effective protection of interest rate control (which was far too high) we suffered serious unemployment - well over a million - due to ERM alone.

The first example is Impulse Airlines. You may recall that when Impulse Airlines commenced operations it had engaged its flight attendants through an arms-length arrangement with the attendants working for a labour hire company Air Crews Control. This company engaged the employees as unit trust holders rather than employees - the ultimate in individualised work practices it would seem. Since May 2001, Impulse Airlines has been a contract provider of services to Qantas and in July 2001, Impulse Airlines abandoned the unit trust arrangement in favour a greenfields certified agreement with the Flight Attendants Association of Australia under section 170LL of the Workplace Agreements Act 1996 (Cth). The agreement provides Impulse Airlines with significant hours flexibility in comparison with the relevant award, (the National Jets System Flight Attendants Award 1999), while giving the employees the ability to earn extra money if they work on "available days". These days are paid working days where the employee is not allocated any work and must be ready to be called in for duty. The threshold for rest periods and the length of rest periods has also been reduced and the number of hours required to work before overtime is payable has been extended.

The second condition I call "natural convergence"; this is the key one. Quite simply - do the participating economies face similar economic problems, and in Europe face them at the same time with similar solutions? That is the issue. Now there are countries where the economic factors are consonant or moving together. They are not complete in their convergence, that is too much to expect, but Austria, Germany, Netherlands and Luxembourg are certainly very closely in line. We are, however, not in the same position, for the reasons I shall be explaining. Moreover the cycles of other countries are very different: Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, the Mediterranean countries - their business cycles are very different to the core country cycles. Their periods of recession and their periods of expansion do not coincide with the core countries. Achieving a temporary similarity of interest rates to prepare for a single setting of a rate by ECB, that might achieve a consonance at a particular moment in time, but this state of affairs is, as it is often called, "ships passing in the night". But those ships are not going to remain there in the same position, latitude and longitude in the economic constellation; they are going to move forward, to diverge.

Well the answer is again simple and pragmatic. You have this impending crises and it is not going to go away. EMU countries have got to fund it and they have not even started to tackle that pension problem like Margaret Thatcher did in the 80's - the reduction of the level of benefits and the opting out of SERPS. They have not even started that. So how is the burden to be borne? It has to be borne and the liabilities met through high interest payments on government debt. It has to be raised from their people through taxation. Will the pressure not be for that suffering to be borne by their partners in the Union? What will we say to our partners when they say "you must help us"? Will we say: "No, we will not. It's your fault, you haven't provided for the future as we have provided." I say this to you. Do not rely on the words of the Maastricht Treaty, they have been broken once already.

As mentioned earlier, the registration of AWA's with the Office of the Employment Advocate or even the registration of state workplace agreements with the Commissioner of Workplace Agreements can be a time-consuming and involved process. This is particularly so with AWA's due to the application of the "no disadvantage" test.
