• Tell StarTrack Management: Let Us Have A Say on Our EBA!
    StarTrack workers have gone above and beyond during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that Australia's parcel delivery system is timely and efficient, doing crucial work to transport a huge surge in demand for online orders as well as important freight, vital medical supplies and crucial COVID-19 vaccines. It is no secret that Australia Post Group and it's StarTrack arm of the business have recorded mega-profits during the pandemic. In an email to all staff on 23rd Feb, 2022, Australia Post CEO & Managing Director Paul Graham advised half-yearly results: • Group revenue: $4.80 billion, up 10.4 per cent on last year • Group profit before tax: $199.8 million, up 19.9 per cent on last year • Parcels and Services revenue: $3.87 billion, up 13.6 per cent on last year Graham then stated "These numbers would not have been possible without all of you and the important work you do every day." While StarTrack has made $3.87 billion, they are refusing to allow the very same staff that turned this profit to meet during paid time to discuss their own Enterprise Agreement. This is outrageous! The ASU asked StarTrack to accommodate workers right to attend Union meetings by allowing the necessary changes to breaks so that workers can attend during their lunchtime. StarTrack management should be working with the ASU to help employees make their voices heard in the enterprise agreement negotiations. If you agree, sign the ASU petition today!

  • Give us our Long Service Leave!
    It's important to acknowledge AV staff years of service and provide fair entitlements to all staff. A mother who has worked fulltime in Ambulance Victoria for 9 years returns to work from maternity leave to undertake 20 hours of work per week. When she takes her LSL, she will not receive payment based on her years of service within Ambulance Victoria but the 20 hours per week she has most recently worked. This discrepancy impacts women, care-takers, and staff who are working part-time even though they have worked fulltime for many years within the service. AEAV members believe it is discriminatory and unfair to not acknowledge staff years of service simply because a staff member has more recently worked part-time.

  • Mental Health Support at the UoA Roseworthy Campus!
    Veterinary students and practitioners are known to suffer from high rates of mental illness. This is especially the case at the university’s Roseworthy campus, where, in a survey conducted by the AVSMH, 27% of veterinary students reported experiencing suicidal ideation. The effects of mental illness are compounded by Roseworthy’s lack of transport and rural location. Such factors either dissuade or outright prevent students from seeking assistance. It is hence important for students to call on the university to provide satisfactory mental health support on campus. When signing this petition, don't forget to use your UoA email so we can prove that these are indeed genuine student demands.

  • Postpone ACU Return to Campus
    In 2022, the COVID-19 pandemic shows no signs of disappearing and presents more risks to health and safety than ever before. New variants like Delta and Omicron are tearing through our community and workplaces. With the risk of workplace transmission ever-increasing, we need strong measures to keep COVID-19 as far as possible from spreading within our university community. As numerous examples have shown, an outbreak at a workplace like ours where there are so many individuals coming and going can have disastrous consequences. Teaching delivery and research can be disrupted or even halted entirely, but the worst effects will be felt by us, the workers. We ask that ACU takes steps to limit the impact by consulting staff and implementing sensible measures. ACU senior management has arbitrarily set February 14 as the date for staff to return to campus. However, they have failed to undertake genuine consultation with staff regarding the potential risks associated with the return to campus and how these risks may be controlled. This has been highlighted by the fact that the University only released its COVID Risk Assessment document for consultation on February 10, just two business days prior to the return to campus.

  • Priority RATs for Tasmanian Transport Workers
    The TWU has received an alarming number of reports from drivers and transport workers who are isolating because they are symptomatic or have identified as close contacts. In addition, we’ve had similar discussions with employers. These essential workers are unable to access PCR testing stations, or test themselves due to shortages of Rapid Antigen Tests. They remain in isolation and symptomatic for up to seven days without access to testing kits. This has resulted in severe driver and labour shortages, and dwindling stock in supermarkets and throughout the supply chain. With the rising infections, and without priority access to Rapid Antigen Tests, this situation will be catastrophic for the industry, associated industries and the public at large.

  • Urgent action and support for ECC, educators and parents of under 5 to protect them from COVID
    Children are vulnerable and need to be protected not only with their current health but also future health. COVID is disruptive to ECC and parents and both require financial support. If the government does not provide this support you will see people leave jobs and ECC settings which will have ramifications on tax revenue and impact many small businesses. Women have been disproportionately been impacted in this situation from both the ECC which had a large female demographic to working mothers taking on a disproportionate load when keeping children home in addition to continue working from home for over 2 years.

  • 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.
