• Union Picnic Day is for union members only!
    Under the Local Government (State) Award, Union Picnic Day is a Public Holiday for Union members. Councils should stop: Giving an over Award payment to non-Union members. Allowing non-Union members to celebrate the achievements of the Union. Paying non-Union members when they should be, as per the Award, applying to take leave. Costing rate payers many thousands of dollars unnecessarily.

  • 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.

  • Australians need secure and reliable jobs
    Insecure work is a serious problem for Australian communities and families. Having a secure job is connected to so many basic things like mental health, food, housing, and being able to plan your life. And when people don’t have stable or secure jobs, they have less money to spend in local businesses which affects the local economy. But the Government can take action to help turn this around. We call on the Morrison Government to make jobs more reliable and secure.

  • मॉरिसन को मेडिकेयर में कटौती करने से रोकें
    चिकित्सा विशेषज्ञों ने पहले ही चेतावनी दी है कि इन परिवर्तनों के कारण जेब की लागत में वृद्धि होगी-जिसका अर्थ है रोगियों को कुछ आम प्रक्रियाओं के लिए सैकड़ों डॉलर तक और दुर्लभ परिस्थितियों के लिए $10,000 तक का भुगतान करना पड़ सकता है । लिबरल सरकार ने पहले से ही 2014 के बाद से मेडिकेयर और अन्य स्वास्थ्य कार्यक्रमों के लिए धन में अरबों की कटौती की है । इससे भी बदतर बात यह है कि उन्होंने मेडिकेयर इंडेक्सेशन रेट को ब्लॉक कर दिया, जिससे बल्क-बिलिंग कम हो जाती है । हमें लिबरल सरकार को रोकने की जरूरत है। --- हम आपकी पसंदीदा भाषा में जानकारी देखने के आपके अधिकार का सम्मान करते हैं। हम माफी मांगते हैं कि सारी जानकारी आपकी पसंदीदा भाषा में नहीं है। हम इस दिशा में काम कर रहे हैं। --- एस मैकमैनस, एसीटू सचिव, 365 क्वीन स्ट्रीट, मेलबर्न 3000 : द्वारा अधिकृत

  • 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.

  • Support Mental Health Workers
    June 30th marked 12 months since the Victorian Public Sector Mental Health EBA expired. 12 months during which the Andrews Government has failed to provide the pay and conditions Mental Health workers deserve. 12 months of a global pandemic, where these workers pushed themselves harder to ever to help Victorians. 12 months of dealing with safety issues, a staffing crisis and increasing workloads. Send a message to James Merlino, the Mental Health Minister, telling him to fix the Mental Health EBA. • Fix the staffing crisis in Mental Health, • Make our hospitals safer, • Treat essential workers fairly. We need Minister Merlino to act now to Support Mental Health workers

  • Healthcare not incarceration
    Our struggles are intertwined. The dehumanisation of refugees and asylum seekers has implications for our wider community, and puts us all at risk. The Australian Governement's racist disregard for refugees shows their preparedness to deny human rights and use violence to opress those who disagrees with. It is the responsability of everyone to stand against morally and ethically wrong laws and injustice. Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.

  • Save the ANU health service!
    This has been part of a broader trend of universities outsourcing the provision of services to external companies at a lower cost, usually involving an attack on workers’ wages and conditions. With the potential collapse of the Co-op imminent, it’s possible that its ANU clinic will be taken over by another external company. This is no solution for staff or patients. Despite being a registered charity, the Co-op has had to compete with private billing clinics. It’s inability to do so is what has thrown the future of its staff and the patients who rely on its services up in the air. Unless the ANU steps in to run the service directly there’s nothing to stop this from happening again. Seeing a doctor is already more expensive in Canberra than almost anywhere else in Australia. Canberra has the lowest bulk-billing rate of any electorate in the country, with only 32% of patients having their GP appointments bulk-billed - well below the national average of 86.2%. Canberrans also pay higher out-of-pocket costs at mixed-billing clinics. Free, accessible healthcare should be a right, not a privilege. Let’s end the outsourcing of vital university services.
