The CWU has created a new website as part of its campaign against offshoring in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector.
The Stop Offshoring (SOS) website went live at the beginning of this month, as reported in the Special E-bulletin of Friday 1 August.
It includes an on-line petition aimed specifically at the issue of offshoring of Telstra jobs.
The CWU believes there is widespread concern in the community about the implications of offshoring. We need to tap into this if we are to put pressure on companies in the industry, both Telstra and others, to retain jobs in Australia.
We also need to be able to demonstrate to our politicians that this is a live issue that they must address.
Members are encouraged to help build the campaign by signing the petition and drawing it to the attention of colleagues, friends and family members.
