• Minister Hazzard, DON'T CUT PARAMEDICS' PAY!
    Paramedics have never been so exhausted or angry. Most work for more than twelve hours straight with no breaks. More than 2 in every 3 Paramedics do not believe they are paid fairly. This is not a fight that Paramedics are going to walk away from.

  • 'Lindungi Kami, Putuskan Rantaian Penularan COVID-19!'
    Mengapa ini penting? Penyebaran COVID-19 telah menyebabkan gangguan besar bagi pekerja dan ekonomi di Malaysia. Ramai di antara rakyat telah kehilangan pekerjaan dan tidak dapat menyara keluarga mereka. Malah sebilangan daripada mereka kehilangan insan tersayang. Penderitaan rakyat semakin mendalam setiap hari dengan menularnya wabak ini. Baru-baru ini kita telah melihat varian yang berbeza dan lebih berbahaya yang sangat merunsingkan kita semua. Kemudahan hospital masih berada pada tahap kritikal di mana kebanyakan hospital tidak dapat menampung jumlah pesakit positif dan orang ramai tidak mendapat rawatan yang secukupnya. Bagi mengakhiri penderitaan ini, kita seharusnya mengutamakan vaksinasi dan ujian “swab test” COVID-19 tepat pada masanya bagi pekerja barisan hadapan dalam memastikan kelancaran ekonomi Malaysia berterusan. Tinjauan di beberapa klinik dan makmal swasta mendapati bahawa bayaran yang dikenakan juga tidak seragam untuk proses ujian saringan yang sama. Menurunkan kos atau menetapkan harga siling yang berpatutan untuk ujian saringan akan membolehkan lebih ramai orang ke institusi kesihatan swasta untuk ujian saringan, dan dengan ini dapat mengurangkan bebanan yang ditanggung oleh institusi kesihatan awam. Sebagai tambahan, dasar monopoli yang diberikan ke atas syarikat Pharmaniaga Bhd. perlu diteliti semula bagi memutuskan rantaian jangkitan COVID-19. Pemerolehan bekalan vaksin hendaklah diperluas kepada lebih banyak syarikat agar proses vaksinasi dapat dipercepatkan. Kita harus mengawal wabak ini secepat mungkin.

  • Award Mr Neale Daniher AO the Companion of the Order of Australia (AC)
    This is extremely important to all Australians as not only could Neale pass away at any moment but also because of the countless hours he puts into raising money, helping with research, hosting, organising and attending events as well as helping others despite raising $50 million dollars for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and suffering with it himself which is currently in the last and worse stage of the heart breaking condition not to mention the other stuff he has done outside of his campaigning and the football career he has had, therefore this man deserves no less than to be awarded the Companion of the order of Australia immediately.

  • Stop more changes and cuts to Medicare!
    Medical experts have already warned these changes will increase out of pocket costs – this means patients could be left paying hundreds of dollars for some common procedures and up to $10,000 for rarer conditions. The Liberal Government has already cut billions in funding for Medicare and other health programs since 2014. What’s worse is that they froze the Medicare indexation rate, which undermines bulk-billing. And they’ve already bungled the vaccine roll-out, the most important public health program in a generation. Now we need to stop the Liberal Government from wrecking Medicare.

  • OPEN LETTER OF JOINT DEMANDS: COVID19 VICTORIAN LOCKDOWN
    Victorian renters are overrepresented in casual work and will lose more than a week’s income that is urgently needed to pay rent. Victorian renters including older renters are already facing eviction, including self-evicting due to significant rental stress and Notices To Vacate since the COVID19 protections were lifted. Renters in significant hardship are facing rental increases in some cases by 25% in regional areas, as well as compounded COVID19 rental debt in addition to standard rental payments since the moratorium legislation was lifted on March 29th. Insecure, casual and low income workers are in significant insecurity and displacement since income support measures and the Rental Moratorium were scrapped from March 29th. Temporary Visa holders have been hit with extreme debt and forced into repayment of up to $20,000 in JobKeeper payments, as well as student and rental debts.

  • Demand a Fairer NDIS
    Independent assessments are intended to reduce spending on NDIS participants. They are part of government efforts to contain costs in the NDIS. These cuts will only increase the number of disabled people unable to access proper support and funding, and will force many disabled people into precarious positions. The cuts to the NDIS will also drive down pay and conditions for disability and mental health workers. The government says it will not introduce IAs until the second IA trial and further consultations have happened. But whatever they end up proposing, the government's plans are clear: to cut spending and exclude people from the NDIS. But we can stop them. Disabled people, disability and mental health workers, and our supporters can band together to show the widespread opposition to IAs and demand a fairer NDIS for all.

  • SCOTT MORRISON: FIX YOUR COVID MESS
    Australians have had enough. Scott Morrison has consistently failed us as Prime Minister. He has done everything he can to blame others for his mistakes. He's bungled the vaccine roll out. He's failed to fund or come up with a plan for effective quarantine facilities. And he cut JobKeeper - which already excluded thousands of vulnerable workers - while we are still in the middle of a global pandemic. With Victoria going into yet another lockdown, Scott Morrison is still refusing to take any responsibility for the mistakes him and his government have made. We must hold him accountable. Add your name to the petition now if you agree.

  • Stop blocking the COVID-19 vaccine waiver at the WTO!
    As the world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, a lack of access to COVID-19 vaccines is set to further entrench global inequality and threaten millions more lives. As it currently stands more than 85 developing countries will not have widespread access to COVID-19 vaccines before 2023. Residents of wealthy and middle-income countries have received about 90 percent of the nearly 400 million vaccines delivered so far. No one is safe unless everyone is safe. India is currently recording over 300,000 COVID-19 cases per day. South Africa and India are proposing the World Trade Organisation waive certain provisions that give the owners of the intellectual property exclusive rights over the manufacture and sale of COVID vaccines. The waiver would only apply to COVID-19 medical products and only for the duration of the pandemic. This would allow these countries and others to make COVID-19 vaccines and make vaccines more available to poorer countries more quickly and at less cost. Their proposal is supported by 118 of 164 countries on WTO. Australia is currently siding with the big pharmaceutical companies in protecting their exclusive patents and huge profits even in the midst of this global emergency. Big Pharma used public funding and technology to develop these vaccines but are refusing to temporarily share the patents to speed up access for all. Just three of these companies distributed $26 billion in profits to shareholders in the last year. This scandal must end. Enough is enough support the waiver!

  • Don’t Close the Door – Save Homelessness Services!
    In the last year 290,500 Australians sought help from specialist homelessness services. These critical services support people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, including vulnerable groups such as women and children escaping domestic and family violence. If the Federal Government goes ahead with this $50m cut, critical services will be closed and jobs lost across Australia. Homelessness services were not meeting demand pre COVID-19 and are now under extreme pressure due to the impact of COVID-19 and economic recession. To rebuild out of this crisis and be able to support our most vulnerable Australians we cannot afford to lose hundreds of critical frontline homelessness workers. We call on the Morrison Government to ensure it continues and indexes its existing level of funding for these critical community services so workers are paid properly and able to continue to focus on supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our community. Don’t close the door on homelessness services!

  • Save Yarra Ranges Aged Care
    Council-run home care enables those in need to live independently at home for as long possible. Being able to retain a sense of independence is so important for mental and emotional health. Our ageing relatives, friends and neighbours deserve to retain the quality care they get from our highly trained Council workers

  • Provide Ambos with Bullying, Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Investigation Processes
    Ambulance Victoria has received numerous complaints by paramedics about bullying and sexual harassment. They have asked the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) to undertake a review into Sexual Harassment and Discrimination. The review could take years! In the meantime, when paramedics and AV staff raise current issues about bullying, they are told that they can raise them in an internal process or send them to VEOHRC. VEOHRC's coverage of bullying is not clear cut. They cannot conciliate a bullying complaint unless it relates to discrimination or sexual harassment. This will leave many complaints out in the cold, with no-one available to review them. Additionally, less than 10% of surveyed staff at Ambulance Victoria believe that the current internal investigation process is effective and fair. This can’t wait - Ambulance Victoria must act now!

  • WA State Govt: stand up for local manufacturing jobs!
    COVID-19 has taught us all the value and security of having a technologically advanced medical supply-chain in our state. And yet the global pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer, has slated its Perth factory for closure. Not only will our community lose nearly 500 good jobs but also the cutting edge skills we need to make critical medicine for Western Australia.
