Last Tuesday, the Government used its majority in the House of Representatives to pass its Industrial Relations Omnibus Bill.
It is now more important than ever to send a message to the cross-bench senators, who can prevent these damaging attack on workers’ rights from becoming law.
All Australian workers, including those we have relied on to keep us safe during the pandemic, need the protection of our workplace laws.
Yet the Morrison Government is pursuing changes to our laws that would leave workers worse off.
The Government’s changes will weaken workers’ bargaining power, make jobs less secure, and make it easier for employers to casualise jobs.
This is exactly the opposite of what the country needs. If you’re wondering what the Bill means for bargaining or for casual workers, you can get the facts here.
You can also support the campaign by putting up workplace posters on your union notice board.
