• No Giant Electronic Billboards at Paddington Village!
    Paddington is a unique and important local community, and will be spoiled by these out-of-place, massive LED billboards. Not only that, these billboards are designed to distract drivers right before a crossing and a bend in the road on Latrobe Terrace. They are a danger to our drivers, pedestrians and cyclists and they have no place in our community. Residents were not consulted on this billboard approval - and we do not support it!

  • Keep the Parrots at Pinklands
    The Club’s ability to plan for its future is at stake without the certainty of a 20 year lease. Redlands Rugby League Club is a proud Club with a long history at the Pinklands Recreation Reserve and we want to protect our viability, history and heritage. Our community supports its future at the Pinklands site and our voices should be heard. The Redland City Council have approved a Redlands Coast Regional Sports Master Plan that contains the potential for our Redlands Rugby League Club to be relocated to the Master Planned Heinemann Road Mt Cotton site. This would see a potential 35% reduction in Club membership and destruction of our heritage. We are calling on our community to support our call to Redland City Council to keep the Redlands Rugby League Club at the Pinklands Recreational Reserve into the future.

  • Deliveroo: Stop exploiting delivery riders
    Food delivery riders work weekends, nights and in appalling weather with no penalty rates, minimum rates or even guaranteed pay. They get no sick leave if they are unwell and need to stay at home. They get no superannuation or annual leave. And despite working a dangerous job with little reward, they can be sacked without warning or the chance to appeal. That's what happened to Diego. It's not fair. With the help of the TWU, Diego is standing up to Deliveroo, one of the biggest food delivery companies. We're taking Deliveroo to court to contest Diego's unfair dismissal. Can you show your support for Diego by signing the petition?

  • Stop the Wage Freeze
    Under the Liberals, our heroes get zero. This pay freeze is a slap in the face and a kick in the guts to every essential worker who has worked overtime during this pandemic to keep us all safe.

  • Save Glamorgan Spring Bay Council Visitor Information Centres
    Tourism provides a vitally important income stream for many in the communities within the Glamorgan Spring Bay Council municipal area. The tourism industry directly employs some 2,000 locals. In addition, 15% of the municipality's residents work in the accommodation and food services industries. There are over 350 properties listed on the popular short term rental website Airbnb and dozens of businesses in the municipality offering a huge range of activities for locals and visitors alike, including walking, kayaking, surfing, fishing, camping, cruising, wine tasting and wildlife as well as the world famous Freycinet and Maria Island National Parks. The services provided by the Visitor Information Centres is vital to continuing the vitality of this region and the recommendations provided by these services help to maintain the many businesses in the municipality that rely on the tourism dollar.

  • No Public Sector Pay Cut
    When the virus hit, public sector workers had to work harder than ever before - often they faced a greater risk of coronavirus by going into work at hospitals or cleaning public spaces and buildings around our state. They did to make us all safe and keep society functioning. Without them, Australia wouldn’t be getting through this crisis better than nearly all other countries. But now the NSW Government, under Premier Gladys Berejiklian, wants to cut their pay. Why? Because they're seen as an easy target - they don't have the wealth or power of big business, CEOs and banks that should be forced to pay their fair share of tax. What's worse, the Premier has already awarded pay rises to Government CEOs and Heads of Departments - one Government CEO even got a $65,500 pay rise! But it gets worse for all us. When the lockdowns and social distancing began, people stopped spending money in their communities and shops. This turned into an economic crisis - people were queuing outside Centrelink for support. The Government employs 1 in 10 people in NSW and could increase the pay of its workers who spend in our communities and shops - with the lockdowns slowly easing, now is the perfect time! If they cut workers pay this will prolong the economic downturn for all of us. Add your name to say this is wrong!

  • Oppose Attacks on Student and Staff Conditions at ANU
    The motive is clear; university managements around the country want to shift the burden of a loss of revenue onto staff and students. They want to cut costs and shore up their profits, and to do that they will cut courses, sack staff, undermine their wages and conditions and charge students the same for a lower quality of education. Schmidt has offered to take a pay cut himself, but this is token given he will still be paid hundreds of thousands per annum. Management making token sacrifices while making workers and students pay is no justification for cuts! We, the undersigned, are opposed to any measures that push the costs for this crisis onto staff and students. We believe that staff and students should be the people who determine what their learning and work environments look like, not university management. The government should be made to pay for the impacts of this crisis on universities, not staff and students.

  • Stop NECA's proposed changes to the Electrical Contracting Award (MA000025)
    The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) has applied to vary the EE&C Award 2010. Some of these proposals are quite simply an attempt to reduce the wages of electrical workers under the guise of the COVID-19 pandemic. They include – - Abolishing penalty rates on Saturdays. - Abolishing penalty rates on Sundays - Expanding ordinary hours of work from the current 6am-6pm Mon-Fri, to 5am-7pm Mon-Sun - Allowing shut-downs (not just Xmas) at employer’s discretion with no notice. We the undersigned electrical workers in Australia oppose these proposed changes as it will make companies covered by enterprise agreements, with penalty rates included, uncompetitive and force a further wage race to the bottom. It will also be detrimental to electrical apprentices, the majority of whom are paid under the EE&C Award. We urge our employers to contact NECA informing them of their opposition too.

  • Extend JobKeeper To All Workers #NoWorkerLeftBehind
    A few weeks ago, he ruled out giving migrant workers a wage subsidy, saying a line had to be drawn somewhere. Now, with an extra $60 billion to spend, the Morrison government is out of excuses. How can Josh Frydenberg condemn over a million workers to starve when the Government has $60 billion in its back pocket? Don’t worry if you’ve never emailed a politician before, or if you’re not sure what you say. All you need to say is that you’re calling on the Morrison Government to expand their wage subsidy, and talk about what it would mean to you. If you’ve lost your job due to COVID, you can write about the challenges you’re facing, and what it means if you’ll be able to pay rent, buy groceries and support your family. If you haven’t lost work or you are eligible for support but want to write a letter to Josh Frydenberg in solidarity, you can share what expanding JobKeeper will mean for people you know or in your community. It’s a critical moment and an opportunity to put pressure on the Government to expand their wage subsidy. We need to send a strong message to Josh Frydenberg about what this could mean for over a million workers. Migrant workers and casual workers who do the same jobs should receive the same support, especially in times of crisis.

  • Keep our schools safe
    School cleaners don’t have enough time to do their job because of cuts to cleaning hours by the NSW Government. Cleaners want to ensure your kids are safe but simply don’t have enough time to do the job they want to do. The NSW Government implemented enhanced cleaning in March. This extra cleaning is not guaranteed beyond the end of term. Cleaners believe that the enhanced cleaning is what's needed to keep the school community safe.

  • Reinstate Workers at Maroondah Council
    Maroondah Council stood down workers without consultation with the ASU and in some cases, no consultation with the employees affected. Those impacted have provided a list of meaningful work tasks that could be performed, but disappointingly, these have been rejected by Maroondah Council management, prolonging the time these employees remain unsupported. The vast majority of Local Authorities have supported their staff by redeploying them into tasks similar to those presented to Maroondah Council. We urge Maroondah council not to abandon those who provide support, education and entertainment to the community any further.

  • $600 aged care retention bonus not for everyone?
    It was later revealed that Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) funded workers would only receive the bonus if their employer also provided home care packages. Co-vid 19 doesn’t discriminate between funding models and workers, so why does Minister Colbeck? Excluding home carers undermines the intention of the bonus to reward and recognise the value of their work and its challenges in a pandemic. ASU council carers are outraged that their work is being undervalued, while those working for large commercial and NGO providers who are more likely to deliver home care packages, are rewarded. Join home carers as they defend the value of their work. Co-vid has highlighted the importance of dependable well administered public services acting in the public interest and able to respond to this crisis. CHSP home carers are angry they have been excluded from the retention bonus scheme undermining our communities’ ability to effectively combat the spread of the virus. The ASU has written to Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians Richard Colbeck, asking for CHSP home carers to receive the retention bonus. Will you support frontline workers and send a message to Minister Colbeck support our community?
