    South East Queensland - Federal Campaign Briefing and Campaign Launch

    Take the first step this Tuesday 8 September towards building a better future for South East Queensland workers and their families.

    Once again, a Liberal National government is attacking the rights of workers. Tony Abbott’s Productivity Commission wants to slash penalty rates and bring back individual contracts and weaken the independent industrial umpire.

    Come along on Tuesday 8 September at 5pm to Level 2, TLC Building 16 Peel Street South Brisbane to hear about and help launch the campaign to build a better future and improve living standards.

    Drinks and nibbles start from 5pm and the briefing begins at 5.30pm. 

    This is a community campaign about the issues that matter, things like workers' rights and jobs, Medicare; accessible, quality education, public services, a secure retirement and a fair go for all. Find out more about the issues.

    You threw out the Newman LNP government in January 2015 – and now you can do it to the Abbott government!

    On 8 September join with us to help build a better future!

     

    PS.  Can’t wait until next week and want to get stuck in right now? Call your local campaign coordinator Trent Abberfield on 0409 398 391 or email tabberfield@actu.org.au
