The Federal Government has accused Opposition Leader Tony Abbott of being dishonest about his plans to bring back aspects of WorkChoices.

Abbott has called for more flexibility in the workplace and for the workplace relations.

‘Elements of WorkChoices’
 
Assistant Treasurer David Bradbury says his comments show the coalition is planning to bring back elements of WorkChoices.

Abbott was starting to give some soft pointers to the business community that his would happen said Bradbury.

‘He doesn’t want to be honest with the Australian people about exactly what his plans are, when it comes to workplace relations,’ Bradbury told Sky News.

‘He should come clean (and) he should tell people exactly which elements of Work Choices it is he’s going to bring back.’
Abbott said in September 2011 that he would not bring back individual workplace agreements and that the Coalition no longer believes in them. This comment brought strong protests from backbenchers and former IR Minister Peter Reith.
