Ten Years Hard Labor for Shaw
NSW Attorney General and Minister for Industrial Relations Jeff Shaw has celebrated ten years at Macquarie Street in typically understated style.
Shaw let the milestone slip during an interview with Workers Online to be published next week. The clock passed ten on May Day.
After five years in Opposition and another five in Government, Shaw says the highlight was definitely the 1995 election win.
He cites the 1996 Industrial Relations Act, which has served as a model for other Labor states and the federal Opposition, as his proudest personal achievement.
