Working people and volunteers from in and around the electorate of Bass, which covers the north-east of Tasmania, will gather on Monday evening to kick off the Change the Rules election campaign.
Last year, working people took to the streets in record numbers to change the rules so that working people can win a fair go, fair pay rises, and jobs we can count on.
To Change the Rules, we need to change the government. This year we are moving from winning the argument to winning the fight.
