• Stop the ADA Degree Cuts at UNSW!
    The University of New South Wales Faculty of Arts, Design & Architecture (UNSW ADA) is trying to rationalise 13 degrees into 5. This is unacceptable. Current and future students deserve certainty in deciding their future. Students studying aspirations shouldn't be left to the whims of management seeking to 'rationalise'. Management is continuing the practice of using temporary COVID driven statistics to destroy unique educational experiences that are held with high regard by the student body. Completely in contradiction of the $305 million profit posted for 2021. We call on the ADA Faculty to not axe these degrees or make further changes without extensive student consultation on how the degree can be improved and not why the degree should be cut. The UNSW SRC expresses serious concerns that this restructure and/or proposal to streamline the degrees to offer students a smoother academic experience at UNSW should not result in further staff cuts and a reduction in the availability of support. Relying on the understanding of improvement of experience must not severely debilitate the quality of academics and breadth of course offerings made to students.

  • Save Night Owl Noodles, Save Our Union
    The UTS Students Association is funded by SSAF, YOUR student money, and we rely on this funding to run: * Free food services (Bluebird and Night Owl Noodles) * Free legal, peer tutoring, and advocacy services * Activism (Climate justice campaigns, Student safety campaigns, No Cuts, No Fees campaigns) * Vertigo magazine
 Due to these funding cuts from UTS, we will be forced to cancel our Night Owl Noodles and BlueBird Brekkie. Services students rely on in times on food and money insecurity. Students need legal aid, we need advocacy, and we need peer tutoring. We NEED free food services. Simply, without funding our services cannot run. Sign the petition to let the Deputy Vice Chancellor know that you want free food services and other association services to continue, and you want YOUR student union funded.

  • Government's to Ease Living Costs
    Cost of living keeps going up while wages and conditions are continually eroded away, people receiving government support are trying to get by with just $42 a day and living in poverty. The gap between wages for men and women is still around 22.8%. The dream of owning your own home has become out of reach for too many people with rentals also becoming more unaffordable, meaning the demand for public housing is increasing.

  • Keep Cashless Buses in WA
    The benefits of implementing a cashless system on WA Buses are not just for drivers, but also the travelling public. Cashless public transport systems around the world provide evidence of increased efficiency and decreased boarding times, decreased timetable delay, and most importantly, a safer system for bus drivers and the travelling public.

  • Arcare nursing staff deserve a fair pay rise!
    These nurses and carers love caring for their residents, but they have been stretched to breaking point by heavy workloads, poor wages and tough working conditions. During the COVID-19 pandemic they have gone above and beyond to keep their residents safe, working double shifts of up to 16 hours, working through their lunch breaks, and often working short staffed. We care about the quality of aged care in Queensland and we call on Arcare management to give their hard-working nurses and carers a fair pay rise.

  • The Public Sector Needs a Pay Rise
    The NSW Government has the power to change Section 146C of the NSW Industrial Relations Act and end the wages policy that restricts your pay and superannuation increases up to 2.5 per cent. This is a policy that condemns Public Sector workers to falling wages as the cost of living goes up. By cutting your real wages, this destructive policy reduces your discretionary spending, pulling money from local businesses at a time when the NSW is trying to rebuild after two tumultuous years. By signing our petition, you are letting MPs know a wages policy that effectively cuts your wages and damages local economies must go.

  • Hands off the Arts ScoMo
    You should join this campaign if you love Australian music. It has been totally defunded. If you love Australia content on TV and Film then the $70 million cut must be reversed. If you live in the country you want the $10 million back. If you enjoy this festival, the Fringe Festival Rising, music festivals, the opera, theatre, museums, art galleries; any of these events you should demand Morrison puts the hundreds of millions back in the budget. Less submarines; more gigs.

  • Save the Occult Club
    Since late 2020, the Occult Club has fought hard for its space on our campus, as a community for witches, pagans, satanists, and other members of minority religions. The club has been registered with the union since early 2021 and has contributed significantly to campus culture by hosting large, open and non-sectarian events, such as a Halloween party in partnership with the Pride Club, Sci-Fi Club and Totally Cooked and a spooky board games night in partnership with GAMES Club. On the 10th of March 2022, members of Oscar Ong’s political faction, Progress, on the Clubs Committee decided to table the Occult Club’s application for full registration after we spent last year provisionally registered with the union. The reason given for this decision was to await letters of complaint about the nature of the club, which haven’t even been written yet. This decision does not follow proper procedure, and no other club has been exposed to this level of review. This demonstrates that the Clubs Committee is willing to apply the rules and regulations of the AUU inconsistently to suit their own desires. This also leaves our club in a very precarious position, as we are unsure whether we are wasting our time while preparing for our events throughout the year, including our second set of Halloween events this October. We are, unfortunately, not the first club to be mistreated by Oscar Ong’s Progress, and this fits neatly into a much broader pattern of discrimination and censorship of views that disagree with the personal views of Progress. Some of the highlights in Progress’ portfolio of censorship and discrimination are: - Refusing to affiliate the Women’s Collective to the AUU - Prohibiting the SRC from criticising decisions of the AUU, and subsequently cutting all funding to the SRC - Gladly affiliating a pro-life club, LifeChoice, while refusing to affiliate a pro-choice club - Making a pattern out of dismissing elected members of the SRC and AUU from rival political groups - Prohibiting On Dit from publishing any criticism of the AUU It is disturbing to see how comfortable Progress is with eroding student democracy and silencing student voices on campus. We, the undersigned, demand that the Adelaide University Union approve the full registration of the Adelaide University Occult Club.

  • Tell Directors to End Sexual Harassment at Honey Birdette
    Workers at Honey Birdette deserve a workplace that’s free from bullying, harassment and sexist standards. In 2015, Honey Birdette workers launched the Not Your Honey campaign and won a WorkSafe investigation into the sexual harassment and bullying at Honey Birdette. Seven years later, harassment and bullying at Honey Birdette boutiques is as bad as it has ever been. Employers have a duty to provide a workplace free from sexual harassment and gendered violence but clearly Honey Birdette’s Directors are providing an environment that enables sexual harassment. Send an email to the Honey Birdette directors now telling them to take action against sexual harassment within their stores.

  • Put transport into the fast lane.
    Australian transport networks are slow, congested, expensive to use and falling apart. The skyrocketing cost of petrol is a burden on all Australians. Investing in faster, safer and better transport networks, is good for jobs, good for productivity, and good for people. Governments have been all talk and no action when it comes to fixing our transport problems – for both people and freight. It’s time to get our transport networks into the fast lane.

  • Restart 24 hour service at UNSW libraries
    Students regularly take advantage of the libraries 24 hour access, in particular during assessment periods, such as the upcoming mid-terms. Library services should return to normal services. This makes sense considering the return to face-to-face teaching. Similarly, resting spots in the library should also be resumed considering their complimentary function in library spaces.
