• Vote No to outsource aged care
    Council aged care services are trusted and well- loved achieving high customer satisfaction ratings. With a federal election imminent and a Royal Commission into aged care underway it is a bad time to consider outsourcing. Why make the decision now? There has been little if any consultation with the community. Council’s commitment to care and its accountability to the community will never be replaced. Ensure our elder’s dignity and capacity to stay in their homes. Please vote to maintain our aged care services in Council.

  • Town of Victoria Park: Don't Celebrate Dispossession
    The Curtin Student Guild represents a large portion of the people who live and study in the Town of Victoria Park, and we don't believe that the 26th of January is something to celebrate. For many of Australia's First Nations people Australia Day has different names, including Day of Mourning, Invasion Day, and Survival Day: it marks the arrival of the First Fleet in New South Wales and the brutal process of colonisation that ensued. In the words of Nakkiah Lui, the 26th of January is a day in which "we mourn the declaration of Australia as terra nullius (land that belongs to no one) as well as those who have died in massacres, those who were dispossessed of their land and homes, those were denied their humanity, those who were shackled, beaten, sent to prison camps, and made to live in reserves". We recognise that the Town of Victoria Park will not be able to boycott its arranged Australia Day celebrations in 2019, and that choosing not to celebrate the 26th of January in the future will not undo the severe and ongoing injustice and trauma faced by Australia's Indigenous people, but we believe it is an important and simple step in the right direction. Choosing not to engage with a symbol so needlessly disrespectful demonstrates that the Town of Victoria Park recognises Australia's real history and will no longer turn a blind eye to the struggle of its First Nations people. Cody Robinson, Indigenous Department Officer Finlay Nolan, Curtin Student Guild President [This petition has been prepared in conjunction with a formal petition which can be found at reception in the Guild Building, 106F, Curtin University, and will be delivered to the Town of Victoria Park]

  • I Support Australian STEM
    Great societies have well run, smart public services. STEM expertise in the Australian Public Service is vital so that our country can deliver the infrastructure, technical outcomes and public policy that Australians expect and deserve. STEM professionals are under increased pressure to deliver, while across the country staffing numbers are cut, funding is slashed and the voices of our scientists, engineers and technical experts are ignored. We see the results all around us –scientific advice ignored, project overruns, waste, cost blow outs. At the same time wages are stagnating, conditions are reduced, and job security is diminishing. We need to restore STEM capacity in the Australian Public Service and create a public service where professional expertise is respected as the key enabler it is, not an overhead to be cut.

  • Stop Commonwealth Bank sponsorship of Australian of the Year
    It is hard to imagine an organisation less suitable to sponsor an award which symbolises the best of Australian society. Commonwealth Bank has been found to be entirely morally bankrupt – an organisation which has for decades profited by exploiting the trust of the Australian people, enriching itself at the expense of hard-working Australians. It has swindled working people – including its own workers – and destroyed lives. This disgraced company has no business sponsoring our highest national honour.

  • Save Wyndham Carols by Candlelight
    Carols by Candlelight at the Werribee Mansion is an annual tradition for the Wyndham community, the highlight of the Christmas calendar. Many members of the Wyndham community have grown up attending carols at the Mansion and now bring back their own families as adults. It is an important coming together of faiths and cultures in recognition of the spirit of the holiday season. Unlike in other Melbourne municipalities, Wyndham Carols by Candlelight is not hosted by Council. Unfortunately, the organising committee who usually run Wyndham Carols have provided no reasoning for the cancellation, aside from citing "unforeseen circumstances". To recognise the significance of this event to the community, we are seeking that Council step in to save Christmas by facilitating a community-led Carols by Candlelight.

  • Support STEM Professionals at the Department of Defence
    STEM professionals of Defence, are an essential part of the Department of Defence and our work must be respected and valued.

  • 不要將我們的簽證系統私有化
    簽證工作應由受過充分訓練和經驗豐富的公務員負責,而不是交給以盈利爲目的的公司。 自由黨一再利字當頭,置人民和國家與不顧。對於公共事業服務,你不能指望自由黨。 讓我們告訴自由黨,我們不想看到澳洲的簽證系統變得越來越昂貴,並給我等移民家庭帶來越來越多的煩惱 – 現在就在請願書上簽字。

  • Don't privatise our visa system!
    This work should be done by public servants who are highly trained and experienced, not private companies who just want to make a profit. Time and time again the Liberals put profits before people and the good of our nation. You can’t trust the Liberals with our public services. Tell the Liberals that you don’t want to see Australia’s immigration system become more expensive and more difficult for migrant families like mine – sign the petition now.

  • Protect home support services
    There are approximately 19,000 Victorians in receipt of aged care packages and more than 14,500 on waiting lists, many of whom will be in receipt of Council delivered Home Care. Council’s withdrawal from home support services will impact on these individuals and their families increasing system fragmentation and uncertainty.

  • Keep Disability SA!
    Government disability services provide stable, individualised and superior quality support services in South Australia. Workers in these services typically support some of the highest needs people living with disabilities that many non-government providers lack the facilities, expertise or willingness to support. Privatisation of services would lead to serious consequences, such as: • A significant limitation in choice for those living with disabilities and their families, contrary to the principles of the NDIS; • The abolishment of the safety net that ensures that everyone in our society has secure and supported accommodation; • The loss of specialised support services, built up over many years, that do not exist in the non-government sector; • Lack of continuity of support for many South Australians for whom instability of living conditions has disastrous and long-term effects; • Over 500 people being forced into a private sector that has demonstrated it is incapable of meeting their complex needs; • The loss of 1500-1700 experienced and skilled workers in a sector that is already plagued by chronic staffing shortages; • Serious gaps in services for regional and remote South Australians; • Increased insecure employment in a casualised private disability sector; and • A disability sector governed by profit margins, rather than the needs of the community. We call on the State Government to reverse their decision to privatise disability services, and commit to delivering high quality services to South Australians in to the future.

  • Fair deal for ACT Health Pharmacists
    Hospital pharmacists at ACT Health are under immense pressure, overworked and understaffed. Despite months of meetings with management, and the Minister, they have failed to deliver a deal which guarantees better pay or an improved classification structure. Ongoing inaction by the Government is reckless and irresponsible – the workforce has put up with this for too long and is now at breaking point.
