  • Say NO to Selling VicRoads
    Treasurer Tim Pallas is investigating the sale or part-privatisation of VicRoads. Bringing the private sector into VicRoads will mean job cuts, erosion of services, the closing down of regional offices, and risks to the security of our personal data and the integrity of our information. And workers have seen too many times what happens to wages and conditions of those who keep their jobs when the private sector takes over the management of public services This isn’t what anyone voted for when this Government was re-elected in 2018. Daniel Andrews acknowledged the failures of privatisation just last year, reflecting with the benefit of history on the problems caused by past sell-offs of public assets. We’re asking him to rein in his Treasurer and protect these workers and their communities.

  • Introduce a comprehensive registration scheme for NSW engineers
    The introduction of such a scheme would bring our state into line with other states, ensure the rightful recognition of professional engineers in NSW and above all else, provide community safety. With no registration scheme in place, NSW risks becoming a haven for unqualified engineers who cannot practice in neighbouring states, exposing the public to intolerable safety risks. The Professional Engineers Registration Bill 2019, introduced into Parliament by Yasmin Catley MP on Friday 25 October will ensure the engineers across NSW are adequately qualified, providing the protection our community deserves. Help us put pressure on the government to introduce a mandatory engineer registration scheme in NSW - sign our petition and we'll send an email to the Premier on your behalf.

  • Put SMARTbuses on the suburban rail loop route
    The Suburban Rail Loop is a great idea and will provide an orbital loop around Melbourne , with new stations connections between major railway lines from the Frankston line to the Werribee line via Melbourne Airport. Suburban Rail Loop will connect Melbourne’s middle suburbs to priority growth precincts, and link all Victorians to major health, education centres at Deakin, Monash and Bundoora, and outer employment centres. But it will take 50 years, or more, to build. Putting SMARTbus services on the route brings all the benefits of the loop to Melbourne residents right now.

  • SAVE Tenants Union ACT
    The Tenants Union is the only independent, community run, specialist service for tenants in the ACT. The Tenants Union was established 38 years ago by grassroots community members in Canberra for this sole purpose. It has been funded since 1994 by the ACT Government to do its vital work supporting Canberra renters. In that time it has supported more than 50,000 people and their families. It should not be defunded. It’s ongoing funding should be increased so it can continue to provide quality services to the Canberra community and ensure its staff are paid properly.

  • Help retain the Collins Class full cycle docking maintenance in SA and save up to 700 jobs.
    The Federal Government is actively considering moving the full cycle docking maintenance of the Collin Class from its current base in Osborne, South Australia to Western Australia. The Osborne workforce built the Collins Class submarines has continued to provide design enhancements, maintenance and through-life support of the six-vessel fleet at the Osborne Naval Shipyard. They built the subs, they are best place to continue to provide full cycle docking maintenance. It’s difficult to see how it would be in the national interest to move full cycle docking from Osborne when it will come at a significant cost, result in cost and time blow outs for the performance of maintenance, result in reduced capability for the Navy, not to mention put the majority of the 700 strong Osborne workforce out of work.

  • Metro workers deserve a fair deal
    We are Metro rail workers who work long tireless hours every week to get commuters like you from A to B safely. Every day, thousands of Victorians rely on our train services to get to where you need to go – and then home safe to our families and communities. Victorians rely on the people who drive our trains, the station staff who keep you informed, and even the train signallers who keep our network running smoothly. We’re the people who keep Metro trains running, and we deserve a fair deal. But right now, Metro trains – the multinational company that runs our network – is trying to force us to accept unfair conditions that will weaken what should be sustainable train services and put at risk network safety and jobs for the future. Metro can and should do better. We're trying to hold the company directors to account, and stand up for the quality and safety of our train network. Help us fight for a fair deal - add your name to our petition!

  • Proper pedestrian crossing
    Because My Auntie was hit by a car walking across the crossing leading to her retirement village on her way back from doing abit of shopping from Coles supermarket. This was an unnecessary death because the crossing across which most elderly people use is poorly constructive.

  • Our trains and trams: NOT FOR SALE
    The South Australian Government has announced that it intends to privatise the Adelaide Metro train and tram service Privatising our rail and tram services means higher prices, fewer services and reduced safety. It puts private profit before the travelling public and their safety. South Australia’s rail and tram services belong to the people, not to Premier Steven Marshall or Transport Minister Stephan Knoll. In fact, Mr Steven Marshall went to the 2018 election claiming that he didn't have a privatisation agenda. Mass transit services should be run by the people, for the people – not for the profits of overseas companies and their shareholders. The solution to better public transport is investment in infrastructure and commitment to services. We need a real plan to grow public transport in South Australia, and to keep our services in public hands.
