• DOJ Must Investigate TPS Training
    In 2020 TPS Management disregarded the training Memorandum of Understanding with TasTAFE, changing the recruit training course, delivering it in an inappropriate setting and removing key content from the course. TPS Training Staff repeatedly raised valid, substantiated concerns, but it took Union members threatening industrial action and issuing safety improvement notices for TPS to listen. These decisions by TPS deprived recruits of appropriate training and qualifications, resulting in 36 recruits requiring retraining so they could deliver correctional services safely for staff and inmates, in line with community standards. The result of sending recruits back to training has • Cost TPS millions of dollars in over-time • Resulted in catastrophic short staffing and • Irreparably damaged the faith that employees and the community have in the accountability and integrity at TPS. Through this training saga, members were gobsmacked that the Minister and the Department of Justice were determined to ignore the truth and avoid accepting their mistakes. The current lockdowns and the damning report from the Custodial Inspectorate could have been prevented by listening to the trainers’ expert advice from the beginning. TPS vision statement says, “We act with integrity respect and accountability. Our workplaces are inclusive and collaborative”. As part of the demands members made to resolve the issues, we called for an independent investigation into the matter and the failure of the decision makers to act on the information presented to them by employees and this is yet to commence. The State Service Code of Conduct outlines appropriate behaviours expected of all state employees. TPS must urgently investigate this matter as a matter of integrity and public interest.

  • NSW: Strengthen the Lockdown, Increase Support Payments!
    The Covid-19 situation in NSW is extremely concerning. Once again, the failure to build proper, dedicated quarantine facilities has resulted in a serious local outbreak, this time of the incredibly contagious Delta strain. Vaccination rates remain woefully low. The NSW Government has acted far too slowly and half-heartedly in relation to the current outbreak. Nobody enjoys lockdowns, but the failure to enact a serious lockdown soon enough has let this outbreak grow, and now means that the lockdown must be extended and strengthened. Allowing the virus to spread would be a health disaster, not just for NSW but for all Australia.

  • Paid Vaccination Leave for All Workers
    The latest plan from the Morrison Government predicts 2 million jabs per week from September. But too many employers are not allowing workers to take the necessary time off to get the job. Those at the greatest risk include casuals and low paid essential workers. No worker should have to choose between getting vaccinated and paying the bills. Last year workers in their unions won paid-pandemic leave and Job Keeper. This year, together, we can win paid vaccination leave. We need a strong voice to demand nationwide paid vaccination leave to give workers paid time off to get the jab and recover from any side effects.

  • FORCED REDUNDANCIES ARE NOT THE ANSWER
    • ‘Spill and fill’ redundancy measures will only exacerbate the anxiety and stress experienced by staff. • The University has a responsibility to its staff and to do the right thing for them. • Redundancies may lead to important work being shifted onto remaining staff or outsourced to external agencies at a substantially higher cost than if performed by University staff. Your signature is important to demonstrate support for La Trobe staff and students and to ensure that the University uses our public resources to maintain high quality employment conditions, so that University staff can continue to deliver quality education and research across Victoria.

  • Minister Hazzard, DON'T CUT PARAMEDICS' PAY!
    Paramedics have never been so exhausted or angry. Most work for more than twelve hours straight with no breaks. More than 2 in every 3 Paramedics do not believe they are paid fairly. This is not a fight that Paramedics are going to walk away from.

  • Fair Wage Rises
    We want to come to work with certainty our wages will increase in line with our day to day living expenses. We have supported the Glenorchy community through a pandemic and continued to deliver high quality services. We want to continue to thrive and to support local businesses in Glenorchy and we can only do that when our wages don't go backwards. Will the Glenorchy General Manager stay true to his word? Will those on Council and running for election show us the respect we deserve? Council can come good an commit to an improved annual administrative increase and reintroduce the CPI safety net, ensuring that in the event CPI is higher than the fixed percentage wage rise, we as worker's aren't left battling to make ends meet.

  • Save Newport Railway Workshops
    The Newport Workshops played a significant role in the industrial development of Victoria and of the Union movement. During it's history the Workshops employed upwards of 5,000 workers at any point in time. These workers built and fabricated anything and every thing needed for the running of rail in Victoria. At present the Workshops house three heritage rail operations that employ workers on a voluntary and directly employed basis, including apprentices. The Government through it's agency Victrack is seeking to remove these heritage operators from the workshops and the future of those workers and the Heritage listed Workshops is uncertain. We have to urgently act to save our industrial and union heritage. The Government must unequivocally commit to preserving our Heritage and the operators that keep it functional.

  • PROTECT OUR PARAMEDICS
    WE NEED MORE PARAMEDICS IN FOSTER TUNCURRY! In Jan-March 2021, in the Great Lakes region, the number of all Ambulance responses increased by 23.2% when compared to the same quarter the previous year (per Bureau of Health information). Concerningly, emergency priority 1 responses went up 21.6% and the highest response 1A (cardiac arrest) went up 52%. Coupled with the fact that NSWA have the lowest survival rate of cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in the nation (NSW at 38% vs 45.5% Australian average) and Forster Tuncurry have one of the highest aging populations in the state – the situation we are currently in is grave. Unfortunately, while NSW Ambulance are adding more staff to the Forster Tuncurry Ambulance Stations to replace the on call shifts, they are also enforcing a change to the roster that will reduce the number of ambulances that are available to the Forster Tuncurry community overall. Currently, our roster produces three ambulances during the day and three at night. The roster change by NSW Ambulance now produces three ambulances during the day, one ambulance during the afternoon, and only two ambulances at night. Importantly, all of these cars will be ‘on duty’, not ‘on call’. This means that they are far more likely to be used for low acuity work, like inter-hospital transfers. Consequently, they are far less likely to remain in town than an ‘on call’ crew, who are only responded in the case of urgent work. There are multiple examples of single paramedics and zero paramedics rostered on at Tuncurry on a night shift. The latest being on the 27 April 2021 – there was no night crew to respond to cases in Forster Tuncurry. All the work was covered by on call crews, including the fatal shark attack in May. This is simply unacceptable and unsafe and our communities are being neglected due to under resourcing. NSW Ambulance are also placing the new Foster Paramedics in a tin shed - a council owned building in Manning Lane TUNCURRY. This tin shed has no showers, currently no undercover area for ambulance restocking or parking, no security lighting, no automated security gates and is simply not for for purpose.

  • 'Lindungi Kami, Putuskan Rantaian Penularan COVID-19!'
    Mengapa ini penting? Penyebaran COVID-19 telah menyebabkan gangguan besar bagi pekerja dan ekonomi di Malaysia. Ramai di antara rakyat telah kehilangan pekerjaan dan tidak dapat menyara keluarga mereka. Malah sebilangan daripada mereka kehilangan insan tersayang. Penderitaan rakyat semakin mendalam setiap hari dengan menularnya wabak ini. Baru-baru ini kita telah melihat varian yang berbeza dan lebih berbahaya yang sangat merunsingkan kita semua. Kemudahan hospital masih berada pada tahap kritikal di mana kebanyakan hospital tidak dapat menampung jumlah pesakit positif dan orang ramai tidak mendapat rawatan yang secukupnya. Bagi mengakhiri penderitaan ini, kita seharusnya mengutamakan vaksinasi dan ujian “swab test” COVID-19 tepat pada masanya bagi pekerja barisan hadapan dalam memastikan kelancaran ekonomi Malaysia berterusan. Tinjauan di beberapa klinik dan makmal swasta mendapati bahawa bayaran yang dikenakan juga tidak seragam untuk proses ujian saringan yang sama. Menurunkan kos atau menetapkan harga siling yang berpatutan untuk ujian saringan akan membolehkan lebih ramai orang ke institusi kesihatan swasta untuk ujian saringan, dan dengan ini dapat mengurangkan bebanan yang ditanggung oleh institusi kesihatan awam. Sebagai tambahan, dasar monopoli yang diberikan ke atas syarikat Pharmaniaga Bhd. perlu diteliti semula bagi memutuskan rantaian jangkitan COVID-19. Pemerolehan bekalan vaksin hendaklah diperluas kepada lebih banyak syarikat agar proses vaksinasi dapat dipercepatkan. Kita harus mengawal wabak ini secepat mungkin.

  • Award Mr Neale Daniher AO the Companion of the Order of Australia (AC)
    This is extremely important to all Australians as not only could Neale pass away at any moment but also because of the countless hours he puts into raising money, helping with research, hosting, organising and attending events as well as helping others despite raising $50 million dollars for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and suffering with it himself which is currently in the last and worse stage of the heart breaking condition not to mention the other stuff he has done outside of his campaigning and the football career he has had, therefore this man deserves no less than to be awarded the Companion of the order of Australia immediately.

  • Stop more changes and cuts to Medicare!
    Medical experts have already warned these changes will increase out of pocket costs – this means patients could be left paying hundreds of dollars for some common procedures and up to $10,000 for rarer conditions. The Liberal Government has already cut billions in funding for Medicare and other health programs since 2014. What’s worse is that they froze the Medicare indexation rate, which undermines bulk-billing. And they’ve already bungled the vaccine roll-out, the most important public health program in a generation. Now we need to stop the Liberal Government from wrecking Medicare.
