Innes Willox said : “Under the pretence of so-called workers' choice, Kelly O’Dwyer and the Liberals have been attacking the best performing super schemes and trying to push workers into retail super schemes, which according to the royal commission into banking are inferior schemes," he said. Australian Industry Group chief executive Innes Willox said superannuation laws have allowed enterprise agreements to override choice of fund because employees are considered to have expressed their choice when they vote to approve the enterprise agreement. The 2014-15 Heydon Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption recommended that superannuation laws be amended to prevent enterprise agreements excluding choice of fund. "The Australian Industry Group does not oppose this recommendation so long as an enterprise agreement is able to specify a default superannuation fund for those who do not choose a fund,” External link
