Rally: Stop the war on workers

Published: 15 Mar 2017

Unions and workers working together have just changed government in this state, it’s now time to turn our attention to a greater threat to our future, the Turnbull Liberal Government.

We have the momentum to effect real change- let’s keep it going. But we can’t do it without your support.

We need to STOP the war on workers and Jobs.

Working people and families are under attack from the Turnbull government. It seems everything is done for the big end of town and nothing for anyone else.

We’ve seen the Libs reintroduce the ABCC. This is how it impacts on your hip pocket.

On federal funded projects, The ABCC promotes casualisation in the workplace- no limits. NO permanency or job security for you. Dodgy Labour Hire companies now have open slather on federal projects. Union agreements you voted for are watered down or torn up. There can be no quota for apprentices.

Safety comes last. Too many people die doing their job through no fault of their own. Your rights to be represented and protected by unions are stripped away. And if this is not enough- visa workers can be imported to take your job. It be will a race to the bottom at a time when companies are making record profits and workers go without.

On top of that we have seen Turnbull’s elite mob support massive penalty rate cuts, cuts to pensions and cuts to training. Wage theft is rife- young people (your kids) are being massively underpaid and ripped off. Poor people on welfare have been hounded to repay huge debts, in cases where debts don’t even exist, driving many to the point of suicide.

Enough is enough. It’s to make a stand. Let the Libs know you are NOT going to cop it!

Attend the rally on March 21st – if you can’t attend have a family member or friend go – at the end of the day we will all be impacted. Unions will lead the fight – but every worker has to stand up too.

See you there March 21st at Solidarity Park, Harvest Terrace West Perth 11 am – spread the word and own the day!
