This morning amazing ASU Delegates from Vic, Tas and SA appeared before a federal Senate inquiry to talk about the impact of the unfair and undemocratic ensuring integrity bill on rank and file ASU members in their workplaces and the union Movement.

Then this afternoon we were out in force with hundreds of thousands of others across the country marching for urgent action on climate change.
