Merry Xmas workers of Australia

The Albanese Government has secured the support of the Greens, Lydia Thorpe, David Pocock and the Jacqui Lambie Network to pass large parts of the Closing Loopholes laws!

This will be a major win for working people and a huge Christmas present for so many. The new rights include:

1. New rights for labour hire workers (same job, same pay)
2. Criminalising and increasing fines for wage theft
3. Strong new rights for workplace delegates
4. Stronger workplace safety laws, including industrial manslaughter and better rights for injured workers
5. Protections for domestic violence survivors
6. Redundancy rights for those working in small businesses

The Government has also committed to finishing the job and passing the rest of the Bill early next year. This includes:

1. Better rights for casuals
2. Rights for gig workers on digital platforms
3. Better rights for truckies and those in road transport to stay safe
4. More support to stop wage theft

This week our Power Industry Official "Splitty" made his way across the South Eastern part of South Australia as well as a visit to Keswick and members at the Network Operating Centre.

The topic again was the EA offer from Utilities Management Pty Ltd.

With over 1000km travelled and lots of conversations had it was a fantastic opportunity to hear from the workers and their thoughts on the EA Proposal.

I would like to thank Graham Hearnden and Jason Harrison for their time and efforts in assisting me with organising and participating in the workplace visits.

Shame CSL! Have a read of the article attached in the comments of the original Vic ETU post section and prepare to be sickened at the conduct of these Billion dollar tyrants and how they tried to screw over their workers.

This is absolutely disgusting anti worker behaviour!
