Fight or your rights

Unions to rally against Abbott government policies

Next Wednesday, March 4th, union members will rally across Australia to show what they think of the Abbott government’s attacks on workers’ rights, on social benefits and on employment in Australia. 

With Abbot’s leadership looking increasingly shaky, now is the time to remind the Coalition that it their policies, not just Tony Abbott’s personal peculiarities, that are the problem. 

Let’s not forget, this is the team that: 

  • Let the car industry, along with other sections of manufacturing, go to the wall. 
  • Brought down a budget designed to drive up health care and education costs. 
  • Set up its hand-picked Commission of Audit to recommend cutting the aged pension, unemployment benefits and superannuation entitlements. 
  • Wants to change industrial relations laws to make life easier for employers and tougher for their employees. 
  • Is currently denying tens of thousands of public sector workers a real wage rise. 
  • Has done nothing to address youth unemployment, arguably the No.1 problem facing us today.

The union movement has scheduled rallies in each state.  CWU members are urged to attend where possible and to encourage members of their family and their communities to participate as well.

Rally details are as follows:
