• Secure Jobs for Custodial Officers
    We are Care and Custodial officers who work for contractor Ventia under the Department of Justice (“DoJ”) Court Security and Custodial Services (“CS&CS”) contract. Some of us have worked in this role for 20 years and have not once received long service leave. The contract constantly changes providers and has been mismanaged since it was privatised by the Department of Justice in 2000. We work in a challenging role and a risky environment, transporting persons in custody to hospitals and keeping a watch on persons in custody who have left the prisons for the day, for whatever reason. The contract in its form is simply unsustainable. We deal with a high turnover of staff, untrained guards (often subcontractors the company uses to keep costs down), low morale, and low paid, insecure, casualized jobs. After being stonewalled on two occasions by the company and the Fair Work Commission when we tried to take protected industrial action, we are calling for the WA State Government to bring the contract back in house and provide us with safe, secure and reliable jobs we can count on.

  • Help End the Housing Crisis in Victoria- Legislate for Mandatory Inclusionary Zoning
    Access to a safe, sustainable and affordable housing is a growing problem across Victoria and Australia. More than half of Australia’s low-income renters are now paying so much for a roof over their heads that they can’t afford basic essentials like food and clothing and it is only getting worse. Poverty is increasing with fewer people being able to afford private rentals. Women and children fleeing family violence, young people are among those who find it most tough to access affordable rentals. There are currently over 50,000 applications (over 100,000 people) on Victoria’s social housing waiting list. According to census data between 2006 and 2016 homelessness in Victoria rose by 43 per cent. Mandatory Inclusionary Zoning is a long term solution that ensures social housing is baked into the planning of our cities and suburbs.

  • Hands off our RDOs!
    Cutting RDOs from new employees would create a second class of employees who will have limited access to our union-won entitlements. We should not be asked to sell out our future colleagues who cannot vote on this agreement. We are deeply concerned about what this divisive proposal signals for the future of the fund. RDOs are a fantastic entitlement and contribute to the positive workplace culture that makes Cbus so good - for employees and fund members.

  • Support Rail Workers' Campaign for Safety, Conditions and Fair Pay
    Safety on the rail network is of paramount importance, and by trying to erode our conditions the NSW Government is lowering those safety standards and putting us all in danger. They are also trying to remove guards from trains - we believe this is an unacceptable risk. Australia has some of the best employment protections in the world thanks to unions fighting for generations to ensure a fair go for all Aussies. But it's a constant battle to maintain these conditions, and the NSW Government is trying to water down our rights and protections. We are fighting to save these for ourselves, for all other public service workers and for the wider community as a whole. The NSW Government imposed a wage freeze on all public servants last year, which amounted to a pay cut in real terms, even for those sectors who had already negotiated higher increases. This is despite a number of senior bureaucrats receiving huge pay rises, sending a clear message to essential workers that they do not matter. All workers deserve a fair pay rise in the current economic environment, and we're fighting to prevent the government from using the pandemic as an excuse to sell us all short.

  • Protect LGBTQ+ Victorians from discrimination
    All people should be treated equally wherever they work, study or access goods and services, regardless of who they are or who they love. But Victorian laws currently allow faith-based organisations to refuse service to someone based on their sexual orientation or because they are transgender, and allow religious schools to dismiss or expel LGBTQ+ students, staff and teachers. People can also be discriminated against based on their marital or parental status. The Victorian government has announced it will be changing these laws this year and we know the conservative Christian lobby will fight to have the proposal watered down. We must come together in our thousands to show our community supports the changes, and to ensure the strongest possible reform. Will you sign our petition today?

  • Paid Isolation Leave to protect all workers
    Workers have carried Australia through this pandemic. Many essential workers are still at constant risk of community or workplace exposure to COVID. As we move into the next phase of the pandemic, all workers, including casuals, must have access to Paid Isolation Leave to reduce the risk of COVID spreading, take the steps needed to keep everyone safe and without losing any income. The requirements for workers to test, trace, isolate or quarantine are going to be with us for an extended period, and could increase for people working in frontline jobs if they experience more regular exposure at work. Workers will need Paid Isolation Leave to get us through this next phase of the pandemic rather than rely on depleted or non-existent leave balances. We need Paid Isolation Leave to protect our families and communities, and stop the spread of COVID-19. Paid Isolation Leave is critical to make sure workers or someone they care for can safely test, isolate or quarantine – and keep their families, communities and workmates safe.
