Now, more than ever we need to come together as a movement & community to restore the fairness in our country for workers and their families.
With the cost of living soaring, new road tolls, rising rents, loss of good jobs and the loss of thousands of dollars a year from the cuts to penalty rates it’s more difficult for many people to earn a living wage to provide for their families.
For construction workers this means fighting back against the exploitative practices of sham contracting, mass labour hire rorts and casualisation of permanent jobs. Construciton is a dangerous industry, construction workers need to feel that they can raise safety concerns without fear of losing their jobs.
This rally is part of a national day of action - workers across the country are coming together to demand a fair go at work.
Together, we can change the rules!
