Since the ALP national conference, the big companies have had the ear of the Liberal and Labor parties about what sort of changes should be made to Australia's industrial relations laws. The voice of workers and their unions has not been heard.
We believe that in order to defend our rights at work workers need to mobilise again so that our voices are heard in opposition to the anti-worker laws.
We therefore call on the ACTU and state, territory and regional labour councils to immediately call a day of protest that demands:
1. The full repeal of the Howard government’s Work Choices and Workplace Relations Act (including the abolition of all individual contracts) and;
2. The enshrining in Australian law of the internationally recognised right of workers to take industrial action in defence of their economic and social interests.
