ACTU secretary Dave Oliver says the Labor Party is cleaning up its act, despite concerns about corruption and fraud allegations and a decline in trust.
ALP vice-president Tony Sheldon said last week there was "more than just a crisis of trust brought on by the corrupt behaviour of property scammers and lobbyists".
Mr Sheldon said it was a "crisis of belief brought on by a lack of moral and political purpose".
Mr Oliver told the National Press Club in Canberra on Wednesday that steps were being taken to review the ALP.
"Hopefully those processes will work through the system," Mr Oliver said.
"But the thing that matters the most to the people we're dealing with out there on a daily basis are ... job insecurity, secure jobs, having good sound policies to protect jobs, and having vibrant industries in this country.
"The party is at its best when it starts focusing on good policy, and there has been good policy coming out of the party and there have been good results coming out of this government for workers."
