• Maintain a Professional Staff Enterprise Agreement at UTS.
    A Single Agreement wipes a clear baseline from the current Professional Staff Agreement, effectively forcing a fight to simply include existing conditions which have been stripped through simplification. Act NOW to show your support for continuing to use separate agreements at UTS. If a Single Agreement is made in this round of bargaining the prospect of returning to Separate Agreements in the future are slim. Your signature matters, as does the signature of colleagues you refer to this page. Petitions delivered directly to university managements have worked before to protect staff conditions.

  • Save aged care at Latrobe City Council
    Since 2019 there have been local government elections which ushered in a new formation of councilors. Some of these did not vote to privatise council run aged care, but instead have been burdened with the responsibility. Council aged care provides well trained, adequately paid, and trusted care to the elderly in the community. This means the community gets good continuity of care by skilled and permanent workers - exactly what they asked for in the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety! During Covid-19 this kind of care has been a life saver in comparison to the private sector. We must defend these services as best as we can for the future of all people in the valley, because at some point, everyone is going to need care.

  • Give the cap the boot
    I’m a proud union member/supporter of the public sector. Public servants dedicate their work to providing quality services and support to our communities. When you won the election in 2017, you asked public servants to support urgent budget repair, and accept a wage increase of $1,000 per year. Now, we are asking you to support them. We are asking you to support the WA public sector that keeps this state running.

  • Premier: Protect educators in NSW!
    That’s why we are calling on the NSW government to give educators priority access to vaccination, as the QLD state government did just last week, now and throughout the pandemic. We call on you to protect educators and families by communicating clear guidelines to parents about who should be permitted to attend early learning. Educators are not disposable. Educators are not less valuable than others in the education sector or the economy. It’s time to protect NSW educators! Lauren NSW Early Educator

  • Stop Brutal Repression of Trade Union Activist In Sri Lanka
    The implementation of the Kotelawala Defense University Act aims to end free education to militarize tertiary education with commercial orientations. Therefore, trade unions, civil society organizations, student movements and the public are engaged in a fierce struggle against the bill and for the rights of teachers and principals. The government uses police to arrest, intimidate, and physically torture the leaders of trade unions and organizations fighting to suppress these protests and demonstrations. The trade unions and civil society organizations are engaged in a relentless protest campaign to defeat the government's anti-people efforts. The government does not seem to be trying to understand the people's opposition to this. Instead, the government is implementing a plan through the police to imprison its frontline leaders to suppress the protests. Ceylon Bank Employees' Union and member unions of UNI Sri Lanka Affiliates Council and Public Resources and Human Rights Protection Centre (PRHRPC) call to release all the trade union leaders without harassing them further.

  • Vaccinate Sydney's public transport workers now
    Many people are surprised to discover that public transport workers, who have worked throughout this lockdown in an essential and public-facing role, are not eligible for the Pfizer vaccine. We come into contact with many members of the public throughout our day, eat and perform standby duties in packed lunchrooms with fellow workers. There is a lot of potential for the virus to spread throughout our workplace and be carried across sydney by our trains. The risk of serious transmission on the railways not only puts rail workers in danger, it threatens to shut down essential rail services which transport other essential workers across the city. We are concerned that no serious measures have been put in place to address these dangers in our work, and that vaccinating our essential workforce should not be the individual responsibility of workers, but the collective responsibility of the government and management.

  • Hospo Workers Need Paid Vaccination Leave
    Hospitality is one of the most insecure industries in the country. The vast majority of us don’t have access to paid sick leave and are among the lowest paid workers. We can’t afford to take time off work to get vaccinated. Everyone should be safe at work, but without vaccinations we aren’t safe. And without vaccination leave we can’t protect ourselves and others. Without vaccinations we will catch the virus from our customers and pass it onto our workmates, our families and to other patrons. The Morrison government must immediately introduce a minimum of two days of paid vaccination leave for hospitality workers who want to get vaccinated. If any worker has a reaction to the vaccine and needs more time off they should be able to get it.

  • It’s about time to value school support staff!
    Every day, ES staff work to keep our schools running, support our students to learn, and our teachers to teach. Their work is diverse, complex, and vital, but it is undervalued. The salaries of Education Support workers in public schools do not match their contribution. Too many ES are considering leaving the profession and will continue to do so unless the Premier and Education Minister act now. It’s about time our ES staff were paid properly for the important work they do.

  • CBA - Don’t Send Our Jobs Overseas
    In what is likely the first wave in a plan to offshore many hundreds more jobs, the Bank told 120 staff in their processing teams that they can expect to have their jobs sent over to India by April next year. While many of their competitors look to bring jobs back to Australia, the Commonwealth Bank has decided that the opportunity to exploit overseas workers is just too good to pass up. CBA staff have spent years hearing from the Commonwealth Bank about doing what they should do rather than what they can do, and here they are, locked down, working from home, trying to home school and having their jobs sent to India. It’s an absolute disgrace. When it suits CBA, they put out ads patting themselves on the back publicly for having Australian call centers. They’re doing this because they think they can get away with it. Help us stop them.

  • Vaccinate Education Workers Now!
    Urgent vaccination of education staff is essential for their protection as well as the protection of students and their communities. It will also reduce the need in future to move to remote learning, which is so disruptive for students and parents. Most importantly, it is a key public safety measure to slow the spread of future outbreaks. Childcare, kinder and pre-school workers are, in many cases, continuing to work in very high-contact workplaces even when schools and TAFEs move to remote learning. The slow pace of the vaccine rollout, the lack of supply of vaccines and the failure to heed the call to prioritise education workers is putting staff, students and the broader community at risk.

  • Hands Off our Health & Wellbeing Allowance
    Our Health & Well Being Allowance is one of the many entitlements included in our union-negotiated Enterprise Bargaining Agreement. We negotiated and won this entitlement as union members to help pay for the things that protect and improve our mental and physical health. But now Cbus has suddenly decided to make unilateral changes to what should and should not be claimed under this allowance. This allowance is not a gift - it's an entitlement. Everyone at Cbus should be able to use their allowance for its intended purpose, whether they improve their health by going to the gym, walk in the park or play sport in their community. CBUS have said that these changes were made in order to prevent improper claims under the allowance – but these changes go much further than that, and were made without consulting your union representatives. Entitlements like this, and respectful engagement with our union is what makes CBUS such a great place to work, we urge CBUS to engage constructively with us over the policy that governs proper use of OUR entitlements.
