• No Cuts! - Ditch the Unimelb EA Variation
    A pay cut is a slap in the face to staff who have doubled or tripled their workloads to deliver online learning and services to students. The changes to redundancy packages, however, are disturbing. Job losses would become easier and cheaper to make, incentivising the University to lay off more staff. With workers already laid off in student services, libraries, schools and galleries, we cannot afford more cuts. As more of these redundancies take place, our quality of education will lessen. This would mean fewer students, less funding, and the devaluation of University of Melbourne degrees. Those who need University support the most, and benefit the most from tertiary education, would be hit the hardest. Worst of all, hundreds of thousands of workers could be left without a livelihood, all because the university refuses to dig a little deeper. With your help these jobs can be saved, but only by encouraging staff to vote No. Students and staff are counting on your support.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • $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?

  • Take Care of The Performing Artists
    I am the artist known as Toni Childs. I am an Emmy Winner and three-time Grammy-nominated recording artist who lives in Australia. This is a shout out to all the performing artists and musicians affected by this lockdown. And... this is a shout out to all those who want to lend their voice in support of performing artists receiving financial support during this challenging time. I was inspired to create this petition after watching the video below of Tony Burke asking Josh Frydenberg why a young part-time worker who works only one day week is entitled to JobKeeper, and performing artists are not. Ihttps://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=274953026862438 This is an opportunity to let the Australian Treasury know you need their support at this challenging time. Please sign and share this petition, and let's see if we can make some beautiful noise and get rent paid and food on the table. As an Artist, I know it can be difficult to speak up for ourselves when we are in need. I know it is for me, and it has been something that I've had to get over. We tend to be givers and it can be difficult to ask for support. If there was ever a time, this is the time. I love what we do! I love what you do and I love that what we do touches people in ways that it is impossible to put a value on. Sign and share, Peace, Love and Deep Gratitude, toni childs

  • Speak up for essential workers: Treasurer, frontline public sector workers deserve certainty!
    In light of the current crisis the public health system is facing, workers volunteered to roll over their current enterprise agreement, keeping the status quo, so that everyone can focus on delivering services and keeping the community safe. Lucas and the Liberal Government have refused - in favour of attacking workers’ current conditions, including job security. We call on the Treasurer to support essential workers who have been working tirelessly during this crisis by agreeing to rollover the enterprise agreement with a wage increase. This action would provide essential public sector workers with the certainty they deserve and allow the Government to continue focussing on the health and wellbeing of South Australians during these unprecedented times. Sign the petition NOW.
