• Save teachers' jobs!
    Visiting teachers play a crucial role in supporting students, staff, and families. Cutting many of these roles will directly affect students’ learning and wellbeing. Premier Andrews and Minister Hutchins must stop these cuts and instead invest in teachers and students. Visiting Teachers are highly trained experts who work directly with students with disability and complex needs. They support students who are vision and hearing impaired, have physical disabilities, autism, and health impairments. Visiting teachers also work alongside classroom teachers providing advice and support, and model best practice. In addition, they provide direct support to families so their children can access school and thrive. Premier Andrews - you said that you would not cut frontline jobs but by sacking teachers that is exactly what you and your government are planning to do. By adding your name to the petition together we can tell the Premier and Education Minister to reverse this decision immediately.

  • Honour the deal
    Angelo Gavrielatos, the President of the NSW Teacher’s Federation stated: “We struck a deal not once, but twice,”. “The teachers of this state have been gutted by what can only be described as an act of betrayal. Never before has a government walked away from a deal in the way that we are experiencing now. Our message is very simple; honour the agreement,” The children of NSW are losing out on their education every day as classes are merged or left with minimal supervision due to a shortage of teachers. NSW can’t retain the teachers it has or attract the teachers it needs while these essential workers remain underpaid and overworked. The NSW Labor Government must come to it’s senses, live up to the promises it’s made workers and honour the deal. Sign the petition to show your support for our teachers and your children’s future.

  • Same Super for Brisbane City Council Casual & Trainee Bus Drivers
    Casual and trainee bus drivers are some of the lowest-paid Council employees and the current superannuation arrangements mean they get less retirement savings than others. They work just as hard as permanent employees and they deserve the same superannuation rates.

  • NRL: Front up to footy players
    Without players, there is no game, and without fans, there is no profession. As a game born in the working class, there's no sport that better understands the connection between players and supporters. The RLPA is asking the NRL to treat the players with respect and return to the negotiating table – this time with a formal industrial relations mediator, which is common practice when two parties are in dispute. Despite clubs working with the RLPA, agreeing on all terms and conditions that affect clubs and players, and the RLPA not asking for a single dollar more in negotiation since December 2022, the NRL is still trying to make changes that increase their control and coercion over players, including: - Severely reducing how much negotiation the NRL has to undertake with players - The NRL dictating how many commercial partners the players and their union can have - Limiting the union's access to integrity notices, making it harder to assist players - Ownership and use of medical data, allowing the NRL to use it for any reason without express informed consent - Collection and storage of medical data that doesn't meet privacy law requirements - A range of coercive monetary controls, including reduced pay for training ground and reserve players - Adding more matches to the season schedule without agreement with the players - The NRL want to control where the RLPA can send its money on player funds and benefits Find out more at - https://www.rlpa.com.au/faqs-of-cba-dispute/

  • We need the right to clock off and switch off!
    Balancing work and home life is essential for everyone. We all want to work hard and feel rewarded in our jobs, but we also need to spend quality time with family and friends, care for our loved ones, enjoy hobbies, exercise, and rest. For too many people, the work-life balance is off. Unpaid overtime, contact after hours, excessive workloads and understaffing are systemic issues for many workers. With constant email and phone notifications, an expectation to always be switched on, and blurring boundaries between work and home life, finding the work-life balance is harder than ever. • 70% of workers in Australia are often working outside of their scheduled hours • 64% of workers have been contacted in relation to work whilst on leave – including sick leave carers leave, annual leave, or long service leave • Workers are completing an average of 4.6 hours of unpaid overtime each week – or over a full day’s work each fortnight. That’s $460 of unpaid overtime a fortnight! It is vital that workers can switch off from work and be properly paid for their hours worked – that includes being paid to be available to respond to work-related calls and emails. We need the right to clock off and switch off. • The right to disconnect is becoming a reality across the world – in countries from France to Spain, Canada, Argentina, and Ireland. • 78% of workers support the Federal Government legislating for the right to disconnect. It’s time for Australia to act. Join our campaign for the right to clock off and switch off, so we can enjoy time with our family, loved ones and friends!

  • Bring BACK individual written feedback
    As students we should have a say in our learning conditions which is what the University is denying us. The subtraction of individual written feedback is a subtraction to our university & learning experience. This is why it is necessary to take action on stopping this ban.

  • EQUAL TENANT RIGHTS 4 STUDENTS
    Without minimum living standards that is protected by legislation, students are able to be easily exploited by universities and private accommodation providers. There is also no protections of the student's bond being returned in an adequate amount of time. Housing is a human right, and everyone deserves to feel safe and empowered at home.
