Defend Our Rights at Work! Tear up all of Work Choices!

Please find below the link to the on-line petition "Defend Our Rights at Work! Tear Up all of Work Choices", launched in a personal capacity by present and former trade union officials and active trade unionists who have signed the covering letter recommending it.

As is clear from its wording the point of the petition is:

  1. To pressure the ACTU and State, Territory and regional labour councils to call another national day of protest against Work Choices, and
  2. To demand that the ALP opposition commit to tearing up this and other anti-union legislation, like the Australian Building and Construction Commission Act, completely.

You can sign the petition by going to:here.

If you wish to promote the petition from your web site add the following link:

Yours in solidarity,
Sue Bolton (National Trade Union Coordinator, Socialist Alliance)
