  • Time For Fairwork To Take A Seat At The Table
    Workers are still waiting for their money, and young workers can’t afford to wait any longer. As a second year law student, the financial pressure's I face due to the costs of my degree, would be be greatly relieved by receiving the money I am currently owed, only Fairwork has the power to make this happen. This is yet another example of why wage theft laws are urgently needed - the current system is failing workers. If wage theft is going to be taken seriously then we need a Federal Liberal Government’s watchdog that will act in the best interests of Australian workers, and we need one that will act more swiftly than its current inactions demonstrate. We need to send a strong and urgent message to the FWO, that enough is enough, that as public servants, their duty is to serve the Australian public and the Australian workforce, to not just sit in their comfortable office's and muse on the dire situation faced by myself and so many others. FWO needs to stand up and protect workers rights as much as wage theft needs to be made a criminal offence.

  • Protect Our Aged and Disability Services
    We can’t forget about our older community members. They deserve to be cared for and looked after. Some are not fortunate to have family or friends to advocate on their behalf. The aim of home and community care services like Meals on Wheels, assistance with showering, shopping and cleaning is to keep the older members of our community in their own home and out of aged care facilities. Many other councils throughout Victoria have privatise and outsource these services. And those who deliver these services are some of the lowest paid workers predominately female workers. We as a community cannot afford for these services to be privatised.

  • Stop paying Politicians after they retire
    We have so much more needy projects that require assistance today than paying all the Politicians that are no longer doing anything. Also what other employment field in Australia continues to give their workers the fringe benefits after cessation of their duties. Government pushes for fairness and equality and maintains this by at times establishing royal commissions into the investigation of unfair and at times criminal practices. How then is having Politicians still on the Payroll and paying them millions of dollars annually in monetary value including other fringe benefits a fair and equitable practice. We certainly don’t get that and we have all worked hard in Australia. We all perform jobs do our tasks and one job is no more important than the other.

  • Australia-Indonesia Free Trade Agreement is a bad deal for workers and our community
    There is no evidence this trade deal will benefit workers in Australia or Indonesia - it simply gives more power to corporations. This deal has been negotiated in secret with no public consultation, and no assessment of the economic, health, environmental or human rights impacts. We demand the Morrison government immediately stop the process of ratifying this agreement, and commence a thorough assessment of the impacts of this agreement, consult with the public, and renegotiate the agreement accordingly.
