Companies making personal protective equipment, including Melbourne-based multinational Ansell, have made record profits during the pandemic.
But their supply chains are marked by union-busting, debt bondage, and overcrowded conditions fuelling massive Covid outbreaks.
And there's something you can do right now - put this International Public Meeting in your diary.
Come to this meeting to hear first hand from workers in the PPE supply chain, along with worker rights specialists – and discuss how to build solidarity.

ASU Members Win!
After taking industrial action (hampered by members of a non-union association), ASU members at Moorabool Shire Council got a better deal for workers in the next enterprise agreement.
They saw off an attack on their workplace conditions and even made some real improvements to workers rights at Moorabool. On top of that, a pay rise that will make the biggest difference to the lowest-paid workers at council.
Congratulations to ASU members who took action and attended meetings that set the direction of our bargaining.
And a huge thank you to each of our delegates at Moorabool – they are the best of our union. ... See MoreSee Less
Well done to our ASU members and shame on the members of the non union association for hampering our members' outstanding efforts
#solidarity we all stand on your shoulders now as we stand up for a better life in every city & shire 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Hardly a good outcome when many at Council would be taking a pay cut each year when you take into account inflation. Too many are left behind, certainly has not benefited the entire membership.
Fantastic work, well done to the members of the ASU in Moorabool! 👏 👊
ASU - Australian Services UNION 💪💪 In UNITY
Great outcome. Congratulations to the workers in Moorabool
Absolutely fantastic, dare to struggle, dare to win Congratulations to everyone involved and a massive congratulations to ASU members and delegates
How great to hear!! Amazing job!
Congratulations, Comrades. This shows why unions are essential!
👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 We’ll done guys!! Councils will take advantage if they can…
Congrats comrades 😊
You mean the other association that is a union who also supported the your members? Not very professional of ASU to bad mouth other unions just because ex members went to them when you weren't supporting them.
Woo hoo! Well done ASUVicTas members. ✊
Love my union!!
Great outcome, sends a warning shot to other Councils that they can't offer below 2% ✊
Amazing work! Great to show those scabs what workers can achieve when they're not licking boots
