MCG - Richmond Train Station in Richmond, Australia

Penalty Rates Action - MCG

Earlier this year, the Fair Work Commission decided to cut penalty rates for some of Australia's lowest paid workers.

Turnbull Government MPs have been calling for these cuts, the Turnbull Government welcomes these cuts, the Turnbull Government has no plan to stop these cuts. 

We need to show the government that the community believes giving these low paid, overwhelmingly female, often exploited workers a pay-cut is simply unacceptable. 

RSVP below to join.

Frankston Train Station

Frankston Train Station

Earlier this year, the Fair Work Commission decided to cut penalty rates for some of Australia's lowest paid workers.

And the Turnbull government including Dunkley MP Chris Crewther just voted to cut the wages of 700,000 working Australians

The community needs to know that Chris Crewther could have saved Sunday rates - but chose not too. We need to show the government that the community believes giving these low paid workers a pay-cut is simply unacceptable. 

So activists will be out at Frankston Station handing out fliers letting the public know about this cut. 

RSVP below to join.

Trades Hall - New Council Chambers in Carlton, Australia

Migrant Community OHS Forum

Click here to RSVP.

Migrants get injured more than other workers. 
If we work together, we can reduce the number of people getting injured at work.

Victorian Trades Hall Council is the main organisation representing trade unions in Victoria. We have been fighting for workers’ rights for over 150 years.

We want to help all workers feel safe at work, 
so it’s important that we hear about your experiences. 
We invite all migrants to attend this free event so that we can hear about your community’s experience of health and safety at work.
