Senator Ricky Muir - VOTE NO!

Tony Abbott is trying to make changes to the Fair Work Act that are the first step in his plan to bring in Workchoices style laws which will reduce our standard of living by taking away our rights at work.

Tony Abbott wants to:

  • Put you onto individual contracts that can take away penalty rates and cut take home pay
  • Allow you to be paid with something other than money
  • Make it easier for bad employers by having you sign away your right to compensation
  • Take away your right to strike by allowing bad bosses to veto industrial action
  • Make it harder for you to be supported by your union at work
  • Move Australia towards an American style system of low wages and zero conditions

There are two Victorian Senators who can vote to block the legislation.

UPDATE!

Thanks to your action, Senator Madigan has committed to voting NO! 

We still have one more Senator to convince. Keep at it, Vic workers!

 

Sign the petition asking Senator Muir to Vote NO to Tony Abbott's amendments

Dear Senator Muir

Tony Abbott’s amendments to the Fair Work Act attack workers’ rights and conditions.  The amendments will force through changes that will make it easier for pay and conditions to be cut. This means a return to WorkChoices style individual agreements.

The government is also trying to make it harder for me to get representation if I experience problems in the workplace.

These changes are unfair. I know that your vote will be vital in deciding whether they happen or not.

Senators, we call on you to publicly declare that you will not support a bill which reduces the rights of Victorian workers.

Will you sign?
