Some reasons to attend:
The ACT has lost thousands of jobs across industries since the election of the Abbott Government with more expected from this years federal budget.
For workers rights
A range of government reviews are being undertaken with the objective to undermine current rights, wages, conditions and rights to organise.
For penalty rates
The federal government and employers have launched an unprecedented attack on penalty rates. Insecure workers and the low paid rely on penalty rates to make a living.
We want is a fairer society, where working people have access to the dignity of secure work, a living wage, safe workplaces and services that provide the opportunity for everyone in the community to access health, education and housing. All our current achievements and aspirations are currently under threat. Join us in standing up for our jobs, our city and future.
