Give us a break! Save Our Lismore Holiday

We've got some great news.

Last night the Lismore City Council reconsidered the application for a part-day local holiday in 2020 and 2021 which it rejected in December. But this time the Council voted in favour of the holiday!

That means workers in the Lismore Local Government Area will have a half-day public holiday on Thursday 24 September 2020, and on Thursday 23 September 2021.

By signing this petition, you played an important role in convincing Lismore Councillors that local workers deserve a break.

Thank you, and congratulations on being part of a successful community campaign.

Dear Lismore Councillors, the decision to scrap the Lismore Cup public holiday will hurt local workers, their families and our local economy.

Please reinstate our holiday, and give local workers a break.

Why is this important?

Public holidays are important times for all workers in the Lismore area. It’s a time to spend celebrating this great community, volunteering locally, catching up with family and friends, or just having some much-needed time out.

If we have to work we rely on getting paid our penalty rates. Cutting our penalty rates means less money for us to spend in local businesses and less money to help us cover our living costs.

How it will be delivered

The petition will be presented to the Lismore Council prior to its meeting on 11 February, 2020.
