Prahran Station in Prahran, Australia

Union Pride 'Knock-Off Time' Train Station

Equality doesn’t stop at marriage, Katie 

 

 

The community of Prahran deserves better than a Liberal candidate who isn’t willing to stand up for her community. The Liberal Party’s commitment to cutting Safe Schools is rolling the dice with young children’s lives and safety.

Join us to chat to Prahran locals about how important Safe Schools is, what the Liberals are doing to hurt our community, and why Katie Allen needs to condemn Matthew Guy and the Liberal Party’s commitment to scrap safe schools!

Traralgon Station in Traralgon, Australia

Traralgon train station

We are working together to make sure our loved ones are looked after. We'll be speaking to folks in Traralgon on their way to work about issues with aged care. 

  • Right now there are no rules to ensure there are enough nurses to look after our loved ones in private residential care.
  • Aged care workers are overworked and unable to provide the quality and amount of care needed.

Registered nurses are not required to be on site to administer medication.

We need to change the rules and look after the people we love.

Belgrave Station in Belgrave, Australia

Tim and Janne's Belgrave Handout

The rules keep us in insecure work, prevent us from wining higher wages, force us to work longer for less and without compensation for unsocial hours. The rules allow big business to dodge paying tax, while wage theft is left unchecked. The rules say inequality in inevitable - they say we can't strike, take action or speak out if we don't like it.

We know the rules are broken. Join Tim and Janne as they chat to Belgrave commuters about how we need to change the rules.

Victorian Trades Hall in Melbourne, Australia

We Are Union Phonebank - 19th of July

THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

We've got an anti-worker Liberal government in Canberra and one knocking on the door in Victoria.

The Victorian State Election is just four months away, and there is a very real possibility of a Mathew Guy Liberal government being elected.

Bentleigh and Mordialloc are key battlegrounds and we need to make sure that the folks in these communities keep Guy and his brigade of anti-worker cronies as far away from forming government as possible.

We know that when the Liberals are in power, everyday people suffer. This is why on Thursday 7th of July we’re calling other unionists and supporters to speak to ordinary working people about why we need to knock on every door in Bentleigh and Mordialloc.

Experienced and first time phonebankers are welcome – we’ll provide all of the training and pizza you’ll need before you hit the phones!

RSVP below!

Gippsland Trades and Labour Council in Traralgon, Australia

Latrobe Valley Phone-a-thon

Hey neighbour!

We will be getting on the blowers to talk to as many people to invite them to our community event in August. Imagine a room filled with phones, pizza and some of the best comrades. 

It's as easy as bringing your phone (we have some spares) and asking people to come join you in August to create a world first log of claims with other union members. 

Come join us! Bring a friend and build this exciting campaign!

Miners Rest Community Hall in Miners Rest, Australia

Ripon Doorknock

We know what is on the line.

We've got an anti-worker Liberal government in Canberra and one knocking on the door in Victoria.

Malcolm Turnbull could call a snap election as early as July and we're less than 6 months away from the Victorian State Election.

Ripon is a key battleground in both federal and state elections and we need to make sure that the people of Western Victoria keep Turnbull, Guy and their brigade of anti-worker cronies as far away from forming government as possible..

We know that when the Liberals are in power, working people suffer. So it's time to talk to Ripon voters about the issues that matter to working people - quality education, health care and good, secure jobs.

If it's your first time doorknocking we'll make sure to pair you up with an experienced campaigner and everyone will be briefed before we head out! 

RSVP below! And we'll see you there!

We Volunteers

  • all people are respected and valued, 
  • all working people are organised, safe, and winning at work


We organise our communities to build support for union industrial and social campaigns, and we're excited to have you on board.
