  • Kill a worker. Go to jail.
    The lack of any meaningful consequence for companies and bosses who kill workers is disgraceful. A $40,000 fine for an employer who kills someone by clearly failing to operate within health and safety laws is completely out of step with the most basic of community expectations around accountability under the law. There must be real and meaningful consequences for companies and CEOs who chose to put profit ahead of the lives of West Australians.

  • It's Time For A 30 hr Week
    I am a union member and believe in economic justice. The workers of Melbourne are facing an unprecedented global economic downturn not of their making which is leading to job losses. The more job losses we have the more the economy shrinks. We need more jobs to fight off the recession and reducing the working week will create jobs. The New Economics Foundation (NEF) in Sweden, argue there are at least 10 good reasons to reduce the working week and it doesn't harm the economy, in fact it has a positive effect by creating; 1. A smaller carbon footprint 2. A stronger economy 3. Better employees 4. Lower unemployment 5. Improved wellbeing 6. More equality between men and women 7. Higher quality, affordable childcare 8. More time for families, friends and neighbours 9. Making more of later life 10. A stronger democracy Unemployment is one of the greatest crimes for a society, it creates untold misery and poverty. Our communities deserve better, fight for a reduced working week.

  • Protect the Workers Who Protect Health Workers NOW!
    Security Officers deal with violence and aggression at work every day. They put themselves on the line to protect health workers so they can provide essential services to the people of WA. Security Officers working on a casual basis in the NMHS sites have been treated differently to every other group of public sector workers across the state. Some of these officers have been working 'casually' for up to a decade - and we say 'enough is enough! Security officers get hurt at work protecting others and face the stresses of dealing with aggression and violence on every shift. Continuing to employ them casually is just not good enough. Security Officers deserve the protection of permanent employment so they can do their best to protect WA Health workers and the community.

  • Tell General Pants Co: Long term casuals deserve JobKeeper!
    There are hundreds of General Pants staff across Australia who are missing out on JobKeeper, despite being eligible according to the Australian Tax Office.  These workers are long term casuals, with regular shifts and patterns of employment. Some of these workers have worked at General Pants Co for six years. This is a common story, a few weeks ago we heard a similar story from Cotton On workers and David Jones. Both of those companies have now included all eligible casual workers. Why haven’t General Pants Co? We've set-up this action so you can email CEO Sacha Laing directly, letting him know you support these workers and that he should too.

  • Woolies: Meet with UWU Reps about unfair and unsafe pick rates!!!
    This is important because all reps should be heard from, agreed outcomes should be from all parties - not management and "team representatives". Workers deserve to have their views about the JDA represented at all negotiations that affect them!

  • We support a Fair Go for Sunny Coast Garbos
    The Sunshine Coast waste contract is going up for tender this year and our local garbo's are at risk of being forced to do the same job for significantly reduced pay and conditions. Our Garbos work hard and are fellow rate payers with families to support. Our Garbos have been essential workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping our streets and our communities clean at a time when that has never been more critical. They should not be punished due to an administrative decision by Council.

  • Petition against the Unauthorised use of in-cab cameras
    We believe companies who use surveillance technology to spy on us in our trucks are using this type of surveillance to invade our privacy. It should not be the intention to use this technology to discipline drivers instead of its intended purpose, as a safety measure. We spend days at a time in our cabs. They are our desks; they are our bunks. We eat, sleep, and breathe in our trucks and ask for respect when it comes to our privacy.

  • Re-instate Visits
    It is time for the visits to resume and the AMC, we haven’t seen our loved ones for nearly 4 months. The updates on the Corrective Services website was virtually non existent, the department also fell very short on updating the prisoners. Although prisoners are in there to be punished for crimes committed they should still have the basic right of contact with loved ones and the reverse is also true we have a right to see our loved ones. Whilst I understand it was necessary to cancel visits at the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak, Since there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 in Canberra for 7 weeks I am at a loss to understand this as an excuse. Hiding behind this excuse is somewhat cowardly and not validated by the governments reported statistics or perhaps is it a case of the government simply not reporting them publicly. It seems the COVID virus has become the scapegoat for anyone not to fulfil their commitments and responsibilities this includes individuals, the corporate sector and the Government entities. I simply cannot believe that the government did not have contingency plans in place for just these situations. Then to declare you have no idea when the visits will recommence is ridiculous and quite frankly treating us as idiots and unworthy of the truth. The government has had dates and updates for business reopening, and social activities to recommence. I am simply appalled, angered and extremely upset by your handling of this situation I believe my civil liberties and human rights are being violated along with those of the inmates. Your duty of disclosure and transparency is non existent or are we so low on the Priority list you simply don’t care. May I remind you as a government department and elected member of the legislative assembly ultimately you are answerable to the people and this includes inmates and their loved ones. The mental health of all involved is taking a battering I know mine is.

  • Open the Books: Financial Transparency at the University of Melbourne
    The University has made clear that it intends to carry out restructuring which will see workers across the University made redundant, and has made no promises to retain casual and fixed-term staff, hundreds of whom have already lost their jobs. Senior management have not made the case that any of these job cuts are necessary and should open up their books so that the university community can see the real extent of the financial crisis. This is key information that staff and union representatives need in order to fully assess any change plans proposed by the University.

  • Upgrade Ellalong park to a multipurpose activity centre.
    As the town has grown the park is no longer only used by children to play on the play equipment. Many residents currently use the area for outdoor exercise and social sporting activity, often bringing their own equipment to compensate for the lack of facility. A full sized multi-purpose court and other outdoor exercise equipment will enable residents of all ages a more active community space.
