• Secure Jobs for Custodial Officers
    We are Care and Custodial officers who work for contractor Ventia under the Department of Justice (“DoJ”) Court Security and Custodial Services (“CS&CS”) contract. Some of us have worked in this role for 20 years and have not once received long service leave. The contract constantly changes providers and has been mismanaged since it was privatised by the Department of Justice in 2000. We work in a challenging role and a risky environment, transporting persons in custody to hospitals and keeping a watch on persons in custody who have left the prisons for the day, for whatever reason. The contract in its form is simply unsustainable. We deal with a high turnover of staff, untrained guards (often subcontractors the company uses to keep costs down), low morale, and low paid, insecure, casualized jobs. After being stonewalled on two occasions by the company and the Fair Work Commission when we tried to take protected industrial action, we are calling for the WA State Government to bring the contract back in house and provide us with safe, secure and reliable jobs we can count on.

  • Protect LGBTQ+ Victorians from discrimination
    All people should be treated equally wherever they work, study or access goods and services, regardless of who they are or who they love. But Victorian laws currently allow faith-based organisations to refuse service to someone based on their sexual orientation or because they are transgender, and allow religious schools to dismiss or expel LGBTQ+ students, staff and teachers. People can also be discriminated against based on their marital or parental status. The Victorian government has announced it will be changing these laws this year and we know the conservative Christian lobby will fight to have the proposal watered down. We must come together in our thousands to show our community supports the changes, and to ensure the strongest possible reform. Will you sign our petition today?

  • Paid Vaccination Leave for all Monash Workers
    Australia needs to be vaccinated as soon as possible. But we’re running last in the race to get it done. We won’t reach the required levels of COVID vaccination without more vaccine supplies and a faster roll out. We can’t rely on a system where workers have to get their jab on weekends or during lunch breaks. Monash University allows full-time workers to get vaccinated on work time. But it won’t pay casuals to do the same. No worker should have to choose between getting vaccinated and paying the bills. The latest plan from the Morrison government will see 2 million jabs per week being administered from September. We need paid leave to attend vaccination and recover from routine side effects. Last year workers in our Union campaigned for and won paid pandemic leave and one day a week carer’s leave for staff caring and home-schooling. This year, together, we can win paid vaccination leave. But we need to work together. We need a strong voice to demand nation-wide paid vaccination leave. We need it for the University, and we need it for our colleagues and students. Sign the petition for paid vaccination leave. Join your union.

  • Keep Disinformation Out of Parliament
    Racism, homophobia and anti-science views have no place in our parliament, let alone the rest of the country. Giving these views a platform has real world consequences. We've already seen the effects with anti-lockdown and anti-vax protests around the country. Scott Morrison has no excuse for doing nothing to regulate the harmful effects of social media. Politicians in far-right political parties and coordinated hate groups need to be held to account for what they post online. If Scott Morrison isn’t up to the job, then we need a new PM that will. Sign the petition if you want to see action taken on the worst parts of our online community.

  • Stop Brutal Repression of Trade Union Activist In Sri Lanka
    The implementation of the Kotelawala Defense University Act aims to end free education to militarize tertiary education with commercial orientations. Therefore, trade unions, civil society organizations, student movements and the public are engaged in a fierce struggle against the bill and for the rights of teachers and principals. The government uses police to arrest, intimidate, and physically torture the leaders of trade unions and organizations fighting to suppress these protests and demonstrations. The trade unions and civil society organizations are engaged in a relentless protest campaign to defeat the government's anti-people efforts. The government does not seem to be trying to understand the people's opposition to this. Instead, the government is implementing a plan through the police to imprison its frontline leaders to suppress the protests. Ceylon Bank Employees' Union and member unions of UNI Sri Lanka Affiliates Council and Public Resources and Human Rights Protection Centre (PRHRPC) call to release all the trade union leaders without harassing them further.

  • Hospo Workers Need Paid Vaccination Leave
    Hospitality is one of the most insecure industries in the country. The vast majority of us don’t have access to paid sick leave and are among the lowest paid workers. We can’t afford to take time off work to get vaccinated. Everyone should be safe at work, but without vaccinations we aren’t safe. And without vaccination leave we can’t protect ourselves and others. Without vaccinations we will catch the virus from our customers and pass it onto our workmates, our families and to other patrons. The Morrison government must immediately introduce a minimum of two days of paid vaccination leave for hospitality workers who want to get vaccinated. If any worker has a reaction to the vaccine and needs more time off they should be able to get it.

  • It’s about time to value school support staff!
    Every day, ES staff work to keep our schools running, support our students to learn, and our teachers to teach. Their work is diverse, complex, and vital, but it is undervalued. The salaries of Education Support workers in public schools do not match their contribution. Too many ES are considering leaving the profession and will continue to do so unless the Premier and Education Minister act now. It’s about time our ES staff were paid properly for the important work they do.

  • Fair Uni's for our future
