• 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.

  • मेडिकेयर में कटौती को रोकें
    चिकित्सा विशेषज्ञों ने पहले ही चेतावनी दी है कि इन परिवर्तनों के कारण जेब की लागत बढेगी- इसका मतलब है रोगियों को कुछ आम प्रोसीजर्स के लिए सैकड़ों डॉलर तक और अनूठे मामलों के लिए $10,000 तक का पेमेंट करना पड़ सकता है। लिबरल सरकार ने पहले से ही 2014 के बाद से मेडिकेयर और अन्य स्वास्थ्य कार्यक्रमों के लिए फंडिंग 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 मेडिकेयर को बचाने की जरूरत है। हम इस याचिका के द्वारा सरकार से मांग करेंगे कि मेडिकेयर को ना बदले। अपना योगदान देने के लिए इस याचिका पर साइन करें। --- 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.

  • BPO Workers Urgent Demands for Aid and Wage Subsidy
    The COVID pandemic and its economic consequences heavily impacted BPO workers’ safety, jobs and rights at work. From rising COVID cases in BPO worksites, loss of job and income due to floating or no work no pay, to lack of logistical and utility support for WFH employees, BPO workers indeed hurdle more challenges at work. In these trying times, let us stand as one by signing this petition to call on the Philippine government to look into our plight and take action.

  • Minister Hazzard, DON'T CUT PARAMEDICS' PAY!
    Paramedics have never been so exhausted or angry. Most work for more than twelve hours straight with no breaks. More than 2 in every 3 Paramedics do not believe they are paid fairly. This is not a fight that Paramedics are going to walk away from.

  • Don't Steal Our Super
    The Superannuation contributions of all Australians are legislated to increase from 9.5% to 10% on July 1 this year, and then rise 0.5 per cent each year, until they reach 12% by 2025. These increases were legislated in 2012 to ensure that Superannuation remained at a sustainable rate that was fit for purpose. Superannuation – no matter the rate - has always been required to be paid as a percentage of, and on top of your pay. ANZ have signaled their intention to make use of a loophole in some of their employment contracts to avoid passing on the legally mandated increase to employees. In fact, they’re going to make employees fund the increase themselves. It's not right, and they ought to reconsider. They can certainly afford to do the right thing. **Your details will not be shared with ANZ**

  • Stop the LANTITE: It’s holding our degrees!!
    Many people believe that these test results DO NOT represent our ability to teach, in education there are far more important factors to be an effective teacher such as behaviour management, relationship building, resilience, organisation, passion, judgments and drive. There are also flaws in this test. With the majority of questions being multiple choice it has been heard of that students will sit it for 30 minutes, guess the answers then receive their results to find that they have passed. Whereas students and myself who have achieved HDs in their assessments, and have passed exams, may fail this test. Therefore achieving nothing and leading to a low sense of worth!
