Burwood One Street Stall - Burwood East

With the pandemic exposing the flaws of insecure work, the federal government undermining the rights of casual workers in their recent Omnibus Bill and stalling on climate action we're taking action on Saturday the 8th of May with a street stall at Burwood One, Burwood East.

Franky Market in Frankston, Australia

Casual workers' rights: Frankston Market Street Stall

We will be on the streets to reverse Morrison's cuts to the rights of casual workers. Public backlash forced the Morrison Government to gutting its controversial IR Omnibus Bill, but the Liberal Party still forced through its changes that will strip rights away from casual workers.

We demand:

  • Sick leave for all workers -- casuals too!
  • A real pathway to permanency - moving casual workers into permanent jobs with security!
  • An end to wage theft

Safe Climate: Seaford Street Stall

In the fight to eliminate insecure work, as unionists there is something we keep front of mind -- there is no secure job in an unsafe climate.

Scott Morrison's inaction on climate change means that workers are being left behind in the fight for a safe future. The federal government needs to get serious about responding to the climate crisis, by supporting workers and communities to transition into secure union jobs in clean energy industries.

Join us as we take action to demand job security for working people in the shift to net zero emissions!

We Volunteers

We Are Union. We are a movement of people standing together for a just and equitable Victoria where:

  • 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.
