To Change the Rules, we need to change the government.

Quotes attributable to ACTU President Michele O’Neil:
“People in Sydney need good, secure jobs and fair pay rises but the Morrison Government and big business are standing in the way of this. We are ready to win a fair go.
“We are ready to take action to change the government and win more secure jobs and fair pay rises.
“Anyone who wants to live in a better, fairer country, who wants more secure jobs and fairer pay rises should join the movement for change.”
Quotes attributable to Unions NSW Secretary Mark Morey:
“Scott Morrison and the Liberals have put a wrecking ball through wages and conditions. Wage theft has flourished and platforms like Uber and Airtasker have turned jobs into gigs without basic workplace rights like superannuation, sick leave and holidays.
“We are fighting hard at this election to make sure our kids enjoy the same jobs and rights that we have benefitted from. Quality jobs are the foundation on which families and communities are built.”
