  • Help save lives and low the cost of living for low income earners
    People are dying in govt state homes due to not being able to control there body temperature because the Qld state government won’t install air conditioning into government housing. https://youtu.be/t-o-4xXMoM8 Also it’s unfair that homeowners are paying next to nothing for electricity because of solar panels and the Qld state is giving them all the rewards. For equality the low income earner should also be entitled to this as well. For those who are homeowners please read the article because there’s something in there for you that will also benefit you. Thank you and keep safe. https://youtu.be/Htfbo3A6BzQ http://3quotes.com.au/news/3-int-13-geo/index.html

  • Coronavirus - A guaranteed wage subsidy to save jobs now!
    Working Australians have been dealt a body blow by the impact of the coronavirus. Millions of workers are facing the very real prospect of losing their job and they need the government to act. Sign our petition and tell the Morrison government it must provide a guaranteed wage subsidy to all working people immediately to save jobs. Other countries' governments have already done this. The UK government is guaranteeing 80% of people's wages. It’s time Scott Morrison gave Australian workers the same assurance that they are not being abandoned. Let the Prime Minister know that it is only by keeping people in jobs that the future of Australian workers, their families and their communities can be secured. If we guarantee wages now we will keep people in jobs and out of welfare. Sign the petition for a guaranteed wage subsidy and let Scott Morrison know Australian workers need a government that puts the well-being of workers first.

  • Pay Early Educators and Keep Centres Viable!
    Our sector is at crisis point. Despite the global pandemic we are facing, we risk our health every day to go to work. We are essential workers. Without us businesses will close, families will lose their incomes, and vulnerable children will lose their support. You can help protect us now. Provide us with the hand-held temperature scanners that are being used in Singapore to check children’s temperature before they enter the centre. YOU MUST: Announce a comprehensive plan to ensure early childhood educators will continue to be paid throughout the pandemic. Provide us with temperature scanners. Announce funding to keep centres viable and allow them to provide additional leave to their workforce. We are doing our bit. It is time for you to do your bit. We can look after the economy and community, but only if you look after us. Tamika Hicks Early Educator

  • Coronavirus: Sick & Closure Pay for Casual Teachers & ES Staff
    If Casual Relief Teachers or Casual Education Support staff are sick or required to self-isolate they will not get sick pay. This puts real pressure on our colleagues to come to work sick. If schools are required to close they will not be paid. Public health is not an individual responsibility, it is a social responsibility.

  • Coronavirus: Don’t make uni staff pay!
    No university worker should be forced to choose between quarantine and feeding their family. The Coronavirus Covid-19 crisis is engulfing Australia - and our universities are in the eye of the storm. Right now, job security is health security and we need university Vice-Chancellors to do the right thing by staff, students and the public. That means securing our rights at work so we can protect our health at home. No-one can predict how long this crisis will continue - perhaps weeks or months. That's why we need to lock in firm commitments from university employers now to keep things fair, and keep us safe.

  • 新型冠狀病毒:確保所有勞動者都取得特殊狀況給薪假
    所有在澳洲工作的勞動者,我們站在一起,我們不把任何人屏除在外。 現在,在澳洲有330萬個勞動者並沒有辦法拿到給薪假,而這是32%的全國勞動人口。 如果這些人生病了,卻沒有病假或是被迫自主隔離在家,就沒有收入。 我們不能再等了,已經有人被迫自主隔離而失掉主要收入。 我們要求莫里森政府保證,給所有的勞動者兩周特殊給薪假。 現在就連署,讓所有因為新冠肺炎而受到影響的勞動者取得兩周特殊給薪假。

  • PUT AIRPORT STAFF FIRST!
    We are in unprecedented times and as workers, we are petitioning for the Government to introduce an Epidemic and Pandemic Special Leave Policies.  We encourage the Government to recognise that this is an unprecedented situation and as front line transport workers, working with people and their goods, and continuously exposed to the potentially sick patrons, we are at a heightened risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19.  We seek the Government to provide special leave to individuals who do not have sufficient sick leave to cover their absence or carer’s leave to look after an affected family member - be their employment contract a casual, part-time or full-time contract.
