The Newstart unemployment benefit is currently $282 per week - far too little to support people through tough times. Newstart hasn’t increased in real terms in 25 years, while the cost of living, especially housing and utilities has gone through the roof. The low rate increases poverty and inequality in our community and makes it harder for people to get back into work.
Come to this meeting to learn about the issue and discuss how we can achieve change to support people and families in our community.

We Are Union local groups are having their first meetings in our communities.
Union power is people power, and having hubs of power all over the state from Mildura to Traralgon,
from Yarra to Heidelberg - means Unionists like you are coming together to set the agenda for social and economic change!
Come join us!
As a movement, we need to be ready to fight. Ready to fight dodgy bosses. Ready to fight for safe workplaces. Ready to fight union-busting legislation.
And ready to fight for the air we can breathe.
That's why we're inviting you to campaigns training at Trades Hall. We'll be covering everything from recruiting for and running actions to community mapping.
