• Alistair Coe & the Liberals: No Education Cuts!
    Alistair Coe & the Liberals keep telling Canberrans how they will cut rates, taxes and charges, but they haven’t been so quick to tell us which essential services they will cut. Will it be our libraries, school cleaning services or will the Liberals just make it harder to get to around by cutting vital infrastructure works like the light rail extension? Mr Coe - is it true you won’t rule out cuts to Canberra’s education system, including job cuts to teachers, school assistants and school cleaners? Mr. Coe, isn’t it about time you told families in Canberra the truth?

  • Alistair Coe & the Liberals: Promise no cuts to frontline health services!
    Alistair Coe & the Liberals keep telling Canberrans how they will cut rates, taxes and charges, but they haven’t been so quick to tell us which essential services they will cut. Will it be Nurse Led Walk-In Centres, COVID school cleaning or will the Liberals just make it harder to get to work by cutting vital infrastructure works like the light rail extension? Mr Coe - is it true you won’t rule out cuts to frontline health services, including job cuts to doctors, nurses and healthcare workers? Mr. Coe, isn’t it about time you told people in Canberra the truth?

  • Stop Cuts to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
    In 2018, the University's annual revenue was $2.53 billion. Vice Chancellor Michael Spence has a yearly salary of $1.53 million. Sydney University is one of Australia's wealthiest institutions. Tutors, lecturers and professional staff are essential to the learning experience for students, and a 30% reduction will mean larger tutorials, overworked tutors, and less responsive student services. Students are already facing the prospect of massively increased university fees, with humanities degrees set to more than double in price, to $14,500 per year. For staff, the threat of unemployment means the possibility of being forced onto the already insufficient JobSeeker payment, due to be reduced to only $810 a fortnight from September. It is unconscionable that staff and students should bear the brunt of the University's funding crisis. We demand No Cuts!

  • No cuts! Support USYD Education and Social Work staff!
    This is part of a series of attacks against staff and student from both the Liberal government and university management. Courses are getting slashed while the price of education is increasing. Social work students under current liberal plans will also see the cost of their degrees double in 2021. The University of Sydney is one of the richest universities in the country and Vice-Chancellor Michael Spence sits on a million-dollar yearly salary. Management can easily afford to fund the School of Education and Social Work, but they're only concerned about their profits. We need to fight back against all attacks against our education! If you want to join the campaign, join the USYD Education Action Group and join the organising group for Education and Social Work students https://www.facebook.com/groups/1267400043595226/. Join the National Day of Action on August 28 to fight for our education! https://www.facebook.com/events/281188686290641/

  • Greater Financial Support for Students
    We are worried about students who are struggling to pay for rent, food and bills, and when Centrelink payments are reduced in October this will only get worse. We are worried about international students and their families who are struggling to pay course fees, and the obvious impacts this will have. Students are suffering and the University’s response to this has been silence. The University needs to act – and it needs to act now.

  • Take Action For Working Women
    As we deal with this ongoing pandemic, we must ensure that women are not unfairly burdened with the impact of the crisis and are recognised as integral to our planning for recovery. Throughout the pandemic women have been unfairly burdened by its impacts. Women: * are on the front line and doing the vital work that sustains our community * are working their paid job and doing the additional work of caring for kids at home and assisting remote learning * have disproportionately had their jobs cut as female dominated sectors like hospitality and retail shut down and lay off workers * have lost or have no income because they are excluded from JobKeeper * are experiencing family violence in lockdown where their home may also now be their place of paid work. We're calling on the Morrison government and the National Cabinet to urgently take action for working women. Women need time to care for themselves and others, to be financially supported, to be safe at work and to be an integral part of the recovery plan. Sign the petition if you agree!

  • Tell your Centre to pay your child’s educators!
    Many educators are now facing lockdown with no savings, no access to JobKeeper, and no Government support to fall back on. Victorian educators are asking for the support of parents like you to ask Centres to pass on Government funding as wages, as it was intended. Early childhood educators who educate and care for your children NEED YOUR SUPPORT. SIGN THE PETITION to ask YOUR local centre to pass on the Federal Government’s tax-payer funded relief to workers by maintaining their wages! Sincerely, Early Childhood Educators across Melbourne

  • Support for Flinders University Students Must Continue!
    The Flinders University Student Association (FUSA), is once again calling on Flinders University to provide additional academic support to students during this global health pandemic. While case numbers have decreased in South Australia, many students are still completing the majority of their learning online, have lost their jobs and income, and are about to see a severe reduction in government support. In Semester 1, FUSA was instrumental in campaigning for the academic support changes that allowed many students to continue their studies here at Flinders. Changes such as the Opt-In Non-Graded Pass assessment structure would not have occurred without our campaign and the support of the student body. We understand the stresses of being a student in the best of times, let alone during a global health pandemic, but we need your support to push for these changes. Flinders University can and must do more to support the student community during these unprecedented times. Please share this campaign with your classmates, club and association mates and anyone else you know in the student community to help us fight for your rights and welfare as students.

  • Support LGBTIQ+ kids, stop Mark Latham's Bill!
    Mark Latham's Education Legislation Amendment (Parental Rights) Bill 2020 is a dangerous attack to LGBTIQ+ kids and staff. If passed, the Bill will: -prohibit trans and gender diverse content being taught in health and physical education classes. - prohibit teachers from mentioning the existence of LGBTI+ characters, people or events in other subjects like English or History. - prohibit counsellors from giving advice to students on the subject of gender fluidity. - force teachers to refuse to call students by their preferred pronouns. - teachers who do not comply could lose their accreditation and their jobs. - allow parents and guardians to remove their child from any course that mentions sexuality. - force schools to consult with parents and guardians at the start of each year about any course which mentions sexuality (and change the courses accordingly). - legitimise the stigmatization of intersex students. This Bill goes further even than the Religious Discrimination Bill that the Morrison government has waiting in the shadows - which itself would legalise discrimination towards LGBTI+ people in Australia. Latham's Bill goes further as a calculated attempt to erase the very existence of LGBTI+ people and force kids and staff back into the closet. Please share this petition to keep up the fight!
