Labor Senate deal a union stitch-up: PM

Malcolm Turnbull says the appointment of former union official Kimberley Kitching to a vacant opposition seat in the Senate shows only how Labor is beholden to unions.

"It looks to me like yet another union stitch-up," the prime minister told reporters in Canberra on Friday.

Ms Kitching, an ally of Labor leader Bill Shorten, will fill the Victorian Senate seat left empty by Labor powerbroker Stephen Conroy.
