  • Pay Aged Care Workers Fairly
    During the pandemic aged care workers had to look after some of the most vulnerable and at risk people in our community. They deserve better pay and permanent roles to prevent them from having to work across multiple work sites.

  • Better ballance of power in tenant-agency relationship through more engaged enforcement of RTA 2010
    It is in everybody's interest that government agencies do not passively side with private organisations to support, or encourage, lawless behaviour. but to proactively enforce the laws that are in place for good reasons. We all, landlords included, pay our taxes, in the hope to live a society that is not lawless thanks to the passivity or inertia of government agencies.

  • Stop contracting out our jobs
    Contractors to Queensland Rail provide a valuable contribution, but we would rather see them in QR shirts and in permanent employment.  Job insecurity leaves workers and families in the lurch and means they're unable to plan for the future and lead happy and healthy lives. The RTBU will always fight for permanent jobs in our industry.

  • Safe Space for PoC 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. In 2020, UTS had 46,382 students enrolled and of those students, 13,963 were international students, 47% of students spoke languages other than English at home and 48% were born outside of Australia. Experiences of racial discrimination are common among students of colour, however, only 300 complaints have been reported to the Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion entirely with an even smaller amount of these complaints being relevant to racial discrimination. The equity complaint sector itself is a relatively new sector with minimal data and offering students a space to explore the options available to them is important. 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. Urging the need for an allocated room and therefore Ethnocultural safe space, is the University Senior Executives’ plans for the “phased reactivation” of campus, as quoted in Andrew Parfitt, Provost and Senior Vice-President’s email sent to students on Monday the 11th of October 2021. With the reactivation and reopening of campus, comes the obligation of UTS Senior Executive to fast-track the bureaucratic process, and align the Ethnocultural safe space’s establishment with the return of students to campus. An Ethnocultural safe space would improve the campus experience for students of colour by firstly cultivating an active, ‘sticky campus’; but also filling the gaps that the university’s formal complaints processes aren’t able to address for students of Colour. Ultimately, a safe space would give students an outlet to express frustrations and anxieties of systemic and interpersonal racism, resulting in improved student wellbeing.

  • Just Transition
    • According to the Global Climate Risk Index 2020, between 1999 and 2018, Bangladesh ranked seventh in the countries worst affected by extreme weather events. Of the top seven countries, only Myanmar and the Philippines suffered a bigger death toll than low-lying Bangladesh. • Workers have the right to participate in all the aspects of Just Transition processes. Nobody can represent the interests of workers better than workers themselves and their trade union organizations. Trade unions are called to participate actively in these national follow-up and review processes on the Just Transition with a view to promote and defend workers’ rights as well as the interests of the poorest in society.

  • Compensation to essential workers
    The essential workers are forced to work risking their life. We all have been applauding their work by words of appreciation but they need reasonable compensation for their work. It will keep them more encouraged to work that is important at this stage as they are saviours of the people.
