The ASU invites you to participate in our week of action across Tasmania next week.
This action will support the Australian Council of Trade Unions Campaign – For the Workers.
This campaign is especially relevant to Tasmanian Local Government workers’ because a small number of Tasmanian Councils’ are also seeking to freeze wages or cut pay and conditions.
We want them to hear the message that this hurts workers and the communities in which they live, work and spend. It will reduce spending in the economy and make economic recovery last longer.
This pandemic has affected us all. But it is working people who have carried Australia through this time.
In plans for our economic recovery workers should be protected, massive public investment should get people back into work and the public services we all rely on and so many local government workers deliver, should be invested in.
How can I get involved?
- Join ASU and local government members online this Thursday 15 October at 5:30pm to talk about how together we can protect wages, conditions and services. You can join the meeting here.
- Commit to take an action: e.g. hold a workplace meeting, ask your colleagues to sign the petition, join the ASU, share a post or photo on social media.
- Sign the ACTU – For the Workers petition
We will be taking you through these campaign materials you can use in your workplace.
