• Save the John Curtin Hotel
    The Curtin announced its forthcoming closure on Monday. The pub’s managers posted on Facebook that the landlord had decided to sell the almost 150-year-old building this year. We need to save this vital piece of Melbourne's cultural, community and political history. This is an important live music venue. We've lost 16 live gig venues in Melbourne in the last 30 years and we can't allow another one to be picked off by a developer. Many of Melbourne’s old-established pubs, such as the Curtin, add cultural identity to the city and should be earmarked for preservation by the government.

  • Open Letter: SAFE SPACE FOR BIPOC AT UTS
    There is a high population of students from a variety of ethnic and migrant backgrounds who deserve a safe space to feel supported and validated in their time on campus. The introduction of a safe space for the Ethnocultural Collective would allow students of colour the chance and space to discuss, dissect and reflect on their experiences by connecting with other students who face similar barriers and difficulties. This would also allow space for students of colour to raise awareness among students and pointing them towards processes of resolve in the face of discrimination and utilise the complaint system that is currently existent, but not particularly accessible or efficient. Thanks

  • ACTION NOT FRUIT - Reform Respect.Now.Always
    In 2021 only 4 people utilised the support services provided by UTS for survivors of sexual assault and harassment. Based on information gathered by the UTS Women’s Collective, the number of students who had undergone sexual violence in 2021 is much higher than this number. This means that students are, not aware of, distrustful of, or unable to access the support services provided by the university. Student survivors petitioned in 2021 for greater supports and for Respect.Now.Always to stop trivialising their experiences through insensitive fruit puns, however these concerns were not met with any response. The university is not fulfilling its duty of care to these students and it must listen to do better.

  • Western Sydney Paramedics Deserve Safety!
    Almost every other major hospital has implemented airconditioned spaces where Paramedics can complete their clinical note taking without at risk of heat stress. Why does every other Paramedic in Sydney deserve more than our Paramedics in Western Sydney? Minister, it’s time for you to step in and secure our Paramedics health and safety at work. After all they have done for us throughout the pandemic, it is the very least we should do for them.

  • Labor Must Oppose the 'Religious Discrimination Bill'
    These proposed laws seek to entrench discrimination and vilification of LGBTQ people, as well as women, people with disabilities, and single parents, on the pretext of religious freedom. The bill will: 1. Override state laws to allow any person making a ‘statement of belief’ to discriminate against queer people, women, and people with disabilities. 2. Allow religious schools to discriminate at the point of enrolment against queer students, and continue to discipline and fire queer teachers - under the guise of 'religious freedom'. 3. Prevent public health services from ensuring patients aren’t discriminated against by health practitioners exercising ‘religious freedom’. 4. Prevent universities from requiring students to meet professional standards if they object to them on religious grounds Federal Labor has made only the mildest of technical recommendations to reform the current draft of the bill, failing to address some of the most damaging aspects of the legislation. As Labor members, we are asked to finance, volunteer for, and otherwise fight with our MPs for our rights as working people. Our party is failing to stand up for our values, and for vulnerable communities, by supporting this bill.

  • Pay pharmacists fairly for their role in the fight against Covid-19
    Australia's pharmacists were chronically underpaid before the Covid-19 pandemic hit, but with the added pressures brought by the health crisis, more are now burnt out than ever before with many opting to leave the profession. Until pay rates increase, the industry will struggle to retain and attract professionals, increasing the already significant skill shortage.

  • RATs को सभी के लिए मुफ्त और सुलभ बनाओ
    यूनियनों और व्यवसायों ने स्कॉट मॉरिसन से अक्टूबर में RATs को मुफ्त बनाने का आग्रह किया था। वह कार्रवाई कर सकता था लेकिन उसने कुछ नहीं किया। ब्रिटेन और अमेरिकी सरकारों ने पहले ही रैपिड कोविड परीक्षणों को अपने नागरिकों के लिए मुफ्त और सुलभ बना दिया है। एक बार फिर, ऑस्ट्रेलिया स्कॉट मॉरिसन की वजह से पीछे रह गया है। अगर आपको फार्मासिस्ट के पास सौभाग्य से RATs मिल गया तो एक RAT किट का मूल्य $20 तक हो सकता है। यह खर्च पांच लोगों के परिवार के लिए $100 है। यह प्रधानमंत्री के लिए छोटी सी बात हो सकती है, लेकिन यह कई परिवारों के लिए चिंता का विषय है। जब मॉरिसन को पूछा गया कि क्या वो RATs ज़रूरतमंद लोगों के लिए मुफ्त करेंगे तो उन्होंने सुझाव दिया कि यह सरकार का काम नहीं है। जब एक पत्रकार ने विशेष रूप से मॉरिसन को बताया कि "हर कोई RATs का खर्च नहीं उठा सकता है", तो पीएम ने निष्ठाहीन उत्तर दिया, "कुछ लोग कर सकते हैं, कुछ लोग नहीं कर सकते हैं"। हम मॉरिसन की उपेक्षा और असक्षमता को बर्दाश्त नहीं कर सकते। हम सरकार से मांग करते हैं कि RATs को मुफ्त और सुलभ बनाया जाए। --- हम हिंदी भाषा में जानकारी देखने के आपके अधिकार का सम्मान करते हैं। हम अधिक जानकारी हिंदी भाषा में उपलब्ध कराने के लिए प्रयास कर रहे हैं। --- एस मैकमैनस, ACTU सचिव, 365 क्वीन स्ट्रीट, मेलबर्न 3000 : द्वारा अधिकृत

  • PROTECT QANTAS CABIN CREW PAY & SAFETY
    Qantas is telling media they have no choice but to dissolve our agreement because we would not agree for all cabin crew to work on different aircraft. This is not at all true – we would welcome this opportunity with the right training. The truth is, Qantas tried to pressure cabin crew into signing a new agreement that would devastate our personal lives and prevent us spending decent time with our families. Qantas wanted to double the amount of ‘standby’ time in our rosters – which means we can be called in at 90 minutes notice for long periods away from home. It would mean we could not effectively manage our rest between shifts. We would not be able to plan our lives, make childcare arrangements, or book medical appointments. Some of us are primary carers, single or sole parents, and have caring responsibilities for elderly relatives. We told Qantas we were prepared to negotiate a fair solution to this, but management put the agreement out to vote instead. Unsurprisingly, 97% of crew voted no – which Qantas is now using against us to falsely argue that an agreement cannot be reached. Throughout the pandemic, Qantas has received more taxpayer welfare than any other company to support it to pay workers’ wages. This includes $856 million in JobKeeper and the lion’s share of a $320 million package to ensure international operations are ready to return to the skies, including keeping on experienced crew. Last year, Qantas outsourced its entire ground crew – sacking 2500 workers illegally, as found by the Federal Court. Now, it is using gun-to-head tactics to force cabin crew to sacrifice our family lives or else lose around half our pay. It’s time for the Federal Government to act. Sign here to call on the Attorney General to intervene and protect our jobs, pay and conditions, and passenger safety.

  • Make Universities as safe as possible for staff and students
    The Palaszczuk Government has failed to provide direction to universities to ensure a safe and healthy university sector in Queensland. As a result, Vice-Chancellors have made different plans at different universities, creating confusion and inequity and placing staff and students at risk. We need Queensland Health and the Department of Education to sit down with the NTEU and university managements to come up with a uniform plan to make Universities as safe as possible. All university staff, students and their families should sign this petition.

  • Wheelchair Access in Public Schools
    Currently in Australia, a Royal Commission is looking into the shocking cases of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with a disability and Inclusive Education has been recommended during the hearings, utilising the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Article 9 and 24 (see reference below). These UN Articles can’t be properly implemented in our public schools unless we provide access to people who use wheelchairs. 15-20% of people in Australia have a disability. It makes sense to include disabled people in our community - we are not going away! If you have an understanding of inclusion and don't believe in segregation in our public schools, please sign this petition and share it so we can make this change for our future generations to learn to accept diversity from the time they start school. Thank you for sticking up for those who might be a little different you! Remember - it could be you next who might need to use a mobility device and need to be included... https://www.un.org/development/desa/disabilities/convention-on-the-rights-of-persons-with-disabilities/convention-on-the-rights-of-persons-with-disabilities-2.html https://disability.royalcommission.gov.au/
