• Stop paying Politicians after they retire
    We have so much more needy projects that require assistance today than paying all the Politicians that are no longer doing anything. Also what other employment field in Australia continues to give their workers the fringe benefits after cessation of their duties. Government pushes for fairness and equality and maintains this by at times establishing royal commissions into the investigation of unfair and at times criminal practices. How then is having Politicians still on the Payroll and paying them millions of dollars annually in monetary value including other fringe benefits a fair and equitable practice. We certainly don’t get that and we have all worked hard in Australia. We all perform jobs do our tasks and one job is no more important than the other.

  • Improve ALVA Campus Conditions
    Mould and leaking roofs in studio/learning spaces, windows soo filthy they can hardly be seen through, and general poor conditions on campus don't incite positive learning conditions. For students who spend significant amounts of time at university, some clean work spaces are not just desired, they are required!

  • Our Leave is not a KPI
    CBA have added a new KPI: To meet this KPI employees must reduce their annual and long service leave balances. Annual leave and long service leave are entitlements of employment, they're earned, and to link taking that leave to employee performance at the Bank is not appropriate or fair. CBA have plenty of options if they want to ask staff to reduce the amount of leave they’ve got saved up - to make this a KPI is not fair. What staff do with their leave is their business, their ability to meet their KPIs and get their bonuses should not be linked to getting their leave balance down!

  • Please Vote No to Attacks on Workers
    We know that Ms Lambie has a reputation for sticking up for ordinary working people, and has done so many times. We are asking her to support them now by voting against the government's Ensuring Integrity and Worker Benefits Bills. We believe that these bills are an attack on the rights of everyday workers including those in child and aged care, retail, nurses, teachers and tradies, and that they will make it harder for them to get a fair go at work. Yours sincerely, Donna MacKinnon (retired teacher) and the members of the Eastern Workers Collective.

  • Footpaths for Kids - Warnervale P.S.
    Children living in estates at the south eastern end of Warnervale road, bounded by Sparks Road, Old Pacific Highway, and the Wyong Hospital, do not have access to safe footpaths to walk to school. Nor is there a safe place for children to cross Warnervale Road to the fully completed footpath on the northern side of Warnervale road. With all of the development occurring in the area, there are fully laden trucks, including B Doubles, using Warnervale road in addition to the local traffic. It is just not safe for our children to get to school on their own. We want Central Coast Council to make the safety of our children a priority and complete the footpath.

  • UTS Climate Strike
    Transforming our destructive relationship with the environment requires the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs right across society. This includes, but also goes far beyond, rebuilding the electricity system for 100% renewable energy by 2030 under public ownership. We stand with Indigenous people in struggles to protect their lands and waters from impending expansion of fossil fuel projects. We stand with workers in fossil fuel industries and their communities facing insecure work and an uncertain future - there must be clear job guarantee from the government for all of these workers as the economy de-carbonises. We stand against the vested corporate and political interests placing profits above the future of the planet. They have made enormous riches from destroying the earth - they must pay for the climate action we urgently need. Here at UTS we have a particular responsibility and opportunity to play a leading role in the research, development and retraining that will be needed for the climate transition.

  • Minimum staffing levels for 000 workers now!
    Taking emergency calls for a living is already stressful enough. But due to understaffing, 000 workers can't even take a moment between calls to recover from what they've just heard. They're being called back from breaks and feel they're unable to take annual leave. However their greatest concern is for the community trying to call through in an emergency. These workers aren't asking for a pay rise or more holidays, they're simply calling for minimum staffing levels so that they can support Victorians in need.

  • Australia-Indonesia Free Trade Agreement is a bad deal for workers and our community
    There is no evidence this trade deal will benefit workers in Australia or Indonesia - it simply gives more power to corporations. This deal has been negotiated in secret with no public consultation, and no assessment of the economic, health, environmental or human rights impacts. We demand the Morrison government immediately stop the process of ratifying this agreement, and commence a thorough assessment of the impacts of this agreement, consult with the public, and renegotiate the agreement accordingly.

  • Statement of Solidarity with Filipino Academics, Artists and Cultural Workers
    On September 24 2018, amidst the heat of the 46th year of commemorating the Filipino peoples’ struggle against Martial Law under former dictator Ferdinand Marcos, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) released a statement that the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New Peoples Army (NPA) were planning to oust the current Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Shortly after, on October 2, 2018, General Antonio Parlade Jr., assistant deputy chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines accused Universities of being bases for mass recruitments for the CPP and NPA. Parlade Jr released a list of accused educational/academic institutions in the Philippines including premiere Philippine universities such as the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, and Philippine Polytechnic University. The evidence cited for this claim was that campuses host anti-Martial Law film screenings among other artistic and cultural activities. These events have triggered widespread concern among many Filipino artists and acadmics who denounce the malicious efforts by the AFP to “red-tag” educational institutions as part of their counter-insurgency operations. Tagging academics and artists as Communists has historically been a precedent in the Philippines for military and government crackdowns against a wide range of critics. During the Marcos dictatorship, the University of the Philippines served as a space for free expression, speech, and assembly amidst country-wide state censorship, and this space became vital to resisting, opposing, and eventually putting an end to Martial Law. During the Martial Law period artists and academics were prominent among the 70,000 imprisoned and 34,000 tortured between 1972 and 1981 (Amnesty International).
