The Federal Election's been called for September 7. That means we've got less than 5 weeks to stop Tony Abbott's plan to roll back our rights at work. Whether it's undermining penalty rates and award conditions, bringing back individual contracts, giving employers more bargaining power, or attacking unions and the independent umpire, there's just too much at stake to sit this one out.
We and previous generations have fought too hard to have our rights at work taken from us. In 2007 our movement proved that when you attack our conditions and pay, you'll pay the price, and we can -- and must -- do it again.
Chip in below to take a stand and together, we'll stand against Tony Abbott this election.Donate
Every dollar donated helps spread the word to even more Australians about what Abbott's rollback of our work rights if elected and how we can stop him - but only if we've got everyone fighting back this election!
When you work unsociable hours and miss out on time with family and friends, you deserve to be compensated -- that's why penalty rates exist. And they're an essential part of many workers' take-home pay that, if cut, would make life pretty difficult.
But here's the worrying truth, plain and simple: Tony Abbott is on the record supporting the elimination of penalty rates.
We know he's hearing the demands of big business loud and clear who are pushing him to make eliminating penalty rates a priority of his government should he be elected. But it doesn't have to be if enough of us demand penalty rates be protected.
Any form of bullying -- from being deliberately left out all the way through to extreme acts of violence -- can really hurt. That’s why a recent parliamentary inquiry found that bullying was a form of psychological violence.
And thankfully, our government is doing something about this, finalising a code of practice for Australian workplaces: Preventing & Responding to Workplace Bullying.
But employer groups are lobbying hard. Some have opposed the introduction of a code, whilst others want to water down their responsibilities to make the code as weak as possible.
That’s why we need to stand together now and send a strong message to counter the lobbying by these employer groups. Share this petition with everyone you know using the buttons below and together, let’s make sure Minister Shorten hears loud and clear that Australian workers want to end workplace bullying.Donate
