Keep Michaelia Cash out of our unions

Cash

Michaelia Cash is trying to convince the Senate to pass the most anti-union laws we have seen in a generation – the so-called Ensuring Integrity Bill.

This is a shocking attack on our democracy.

These laws would give Michaelia Cash, big business and their lobbyists power to interfere with how unions run, giving them the ability to shut down unions, sack union leaders and stop unions from merging.

They are trying to make it harder for workers to stand together in union and do the job of improving the living standards of working people. 

They would never apply these same laws to business. Under the Liberals, there is one set of laws that apply to them and their mates, and another set of laws for the rest of us.

Working people can defeat these anti-union laws if we act together, and act now.

Why is this important?

The Turnbull Government have been running a smear campaign against your union using all the same old dirty tricks and dodgy outlets.

They don’t like us because workers are calling out the Turnbull government for failing to address inequality, failing to protect penalty rates, failing to lift wages and failing to create good steady jobs.

Turnbull and Cash want to give themselves the power to be able to say who runs your union. They want to stop unions providing training to members about rights at work, how to get a pay rise or how to keep our workplaces safe. They want to put big banks in charge of your super. 

Attacks on unions hurt working people and make inequality worse.

We must defeat these anti-union laws.

Sign and share this petition to tell Michaelia Cash to keep out of our unions.

    Clearly Malcolm and Michaelia are just looking for soft targets and their latest efforts via the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment (Ensuring Integrity) Bill 2017 deserves nothing but contempt.

    We want representation for the taxes that we pay and we don’t want Australian law used to oppress our fellow Australians. We do not want to see our government becoming a kind of convict/slave overseer supplying dirt cheap land, labour, capital and enterprise to multinationals and their creatures who, after extracting massive concessions and subsidies, then fail to pay their taxes and hive off Australia’s wealth in the Caymans leaving Australian people and businesses sucked dry.

    What do we want to see? We want to see Australians standing together confident in each other and their united strength to withstand cynical assaults like this and forging ahead effectively together. That is what Australians do best. They do not abandon each other when the going gets tough, they give each other a fair go and expect each other to step up to the mark and act responsibly in return. Australians are not wowsers but they do not let demonstrably corrupt self-serving creatures like Michaelia Cash, Malcolm Turnbull to thrive forever, they do not forget and they do vote.

    Cash is a shrieking haridan with a maniacal focus on getting rid of the unions without one iota of concern for working class australians. A vile, shallow creature who hopefully will be on the scrap heap after the next election.

    The current LNP Coalition Government is only interested in promoting the interests of the mega wealthy and the large corporations who exploit ordinary working people and the environment and try to block effective unionism. It is crucial that we work to get rid of the extreme right in the LNP at the next election and support progressive candidates. For that reason, it is important that we vote for progressive Greens, left alternative and left ALP candidates. An automatic vote for the ALP ticket is not necessarily the best outcome for social justice and the environment. The so-called left Julia Gillard took ages to close down the ABCC, she cosied up to the US war machine to send our young people to fight wars for US corporations, did nothing to oppose the attempt by the LNP to cheat the East Timorese (our valiant WW2 allies who suffered greatly for supporting Australia) out of their oil and gas resources in their 1/2 of the Timor Sea, etc. We must support candidates who are dedicated to an independent and non aligned Australia that works for social justice and human rights at home and abroad, true equality, fairness in international relations and effective care for the environment. We need a mix of politicians in parliament dedicated to these principles.

    Get rid of Michaelia Cash. Next election the voters need to do their job. Get rid of LNP and uncertain minor parties. Vote labor straight up, don’t leave it to chance LNP toxic weazling to get in.

    Why would any sane Australian worker participate in the race to the bottom along with an extreme erosion of our work rights and conditions? ????

    Corporations are killing our economy. They may avoid tax, or underpay workers, or not contribute to their workers superannuation, or skimp on health and safety, or lobby government to change the law to suit the corporation at the expense of others. Some do all of these things, some do none. Union’s provide workers with the capacity to fight some of these things at least. Our government should encourage unions and spend more effort on making corporations become law-abiding.

    Unions gave us so much but this government is denying us those hard fought for measures. Hands off Cash, you are not wanted, nor needed, on the journey.

    No workers no money for owners and rich people. Why not business and companies share their profits to their workers to keep the businesses going. Every workers should be strong and trust the unity under the UNIONS UMBRELLA. The Liberal Government are looking after themselves and businesses. The door has already been opened to cut penalty RATE. and they will continue unless all the workers (the backbone of the UNION) strongly support UNION LEADERS to win the fight. Together we stand divided we fall. Be strong and be faithful. You’re not alone because you care about the wellbeing of people.All the best and good luck.

    I have always been a unionist and I am now 60? I have seen the unions grow weak over many years! The ACTU and those in power must demonstrate a more radical approach to curtailing the LN party. For the common cause of all workers the leadership should call a general strike? I know that’s a tough stance and may be out of left field but something different must be done to stop those corrupt and anti worker politicians? They are heartless and simply care about lining there own pockets on the back of the working class? Shame shame shame?

    The thought that you presume to have the right to do this is sickening… You should be absolutely ashamed of yourself. Selling out the working class yet again… Why not, for once in your life, just do the right thing? Are you not wealthy enough that you still need to reach into the pockets of working Australians (and assist your “mates” in doing the same)? The anti-union laws and propaganda you, and your party, sling is disgusting and tantamount to reaching into, and thieving from, middle and lower class Australian’s…. Remember? Those people you are meant to represent?

    The Liberal and National party are no better than the English colonial pigs that suppressed, murdered our indigenous brother, as well as shot and imprisoned the early Union members of this country. 80% of all employed people in this country today should be eternally grateful for the good work and sacrifices of union members over the last 100 years or so. Union members have given you the quality of life you have got today.

    This female banshee otherwise known as Cash, has to be one of the most abhorrent members of the LNP. She has no conscience when it comes to kicking ordinary Australians to the gutter in regards to achieving a well deserved pay rise or being a member of a trade union. As long as the ideology of the LNP is rammed through parliament, that is all she cares about. All for herself & the big end of town to increase their profit. Can’t wait until this putrid government is tossed out on its arse ASAP!

    Let the neo – liberalists keep their grubby right wing conservative paws off our unions. There is an old saying Ms. Cash : " You Can’t touch me I’m part of the UNION !!!! ". So be warned keep away from the battling blue collar worker; and we are not asking twice.
